A Reminder to Be Remarkable

More than 275 area industry leaders and entrepreneurs gathered in Buckhead recently to hear an important message: Be remarkable.

In today’s world where business decisions are often disproportionately driven by bottom line results, it can be forgotten that the most successful and iconic companies are the ones who define their values clearly – and stick to them no matter what.

Why Culture is So Important

After spending 37 years in various leadership roles at Chick-Fil-A, David Salyers has made it his goal to replicate the lessons he learned with others. His book Remarkable! focuses on the company’s mission statement which helped inspire its unprecedented growth in a highly competitive industry.

Being remarkable means transforming the perspective of an organization from one of “getting rich” to one of “being rich.” As business leaders, building a culture around enriching the lives of others rather than maximizing value can lead to greater professional satisfaction as well as lasting financial success.

The Power of Perspective

Our perspective is extremely important. It’s the only thing that can radically transform the results we get without altering a single element of our environment.
