caring for all
At Chick-fil-A Frankford Road, we strive to serve together to enrich the lives of others. One of the key aspects of achieving this mission is having the right person on our team. Keep reading below to see if we might be a great fit for you…
Success at work starts with the right mindset
As you think about where you want to work, it’s important to understand what is expected of you at your job, One of our primary expectations of our team members is that they possess the right mindset. Having team members with the right mindset enables us to pursue our mission together and we’re always looking for the next person to come join us in our journey.
Do you possess the right mindset?
Excellence vs Success
The excellent team member strives for excellence in all things. They don’t deem themselves successful just because they may be better than others, but they go after personal excellence to become the best version of themselves possible. Instead of giving just enough effort to make things alright, they strive and work until everything is ALL RIGHT.
They show up for work a couple of minutes early, in perfect uniform, ready to serve. They use the proper language, like “how may I serve you?” & “My pleasure!” and they are always willing to go above and beyond anyone’s expectations.
Investment vs Cost
The excellent team member understands that before a reward comes, an investment must be made. While these investments, such as time, energy, emotions, resources, etc. can be difficult at times, the sacrifice is worth it.
The cost mindset only sees what is being spent, it is shortsighted and pessimistic. However, the investor knows that investing in others today will pay dividends for many days to come, worth more than they could ever imagine.
Calling vs Work
The excellent team member believes that if they love what they do at work, they will never have to work another day in their lives. There is opportunity every moment of every day to have a positive influence on others and find joy in helping others get what they want. This is a calling worthy of embracing, one that will leave a legacy of care and love for others.
The work mindset isn’t able to see the potential for impacting others; it only views the tasks at work in their simplest, most meaningless forms. This view bogs the team member down and frustrates them as they miss what matters most in view of finishing tasks and laboring mindlessly.
Leading vs Managing
The excellent team member is always looking for ways to innovate, improve and influence their fellow team members. They are able to look beyond today and think about what’s next for their own journey as well as the journey of the team. The leading mindset is never satisfied and is always striving to encourage others to achieve the vision together.
The managing mindset is happy settling for less than their best, as long as the job is done, status quo is maintained, life is good. This mindset will never accomplish more than what is right in front of them and will only do that as long as it doesn’t require challenging the process or motivating others.
