LESSONS LEARNED FROM CHUCK E. CHEESESep 20, 2022
So often new leaders are intently focused on doing well and they don’t always acknowledge the many lessons they have learned. I know this all too well…A VERY, VERY LONG TIME AGO, I worked at Chuck E. Cheese's, and even though I didn't realize it at the time...this experience taught me a lot.
The place where “a kid can be a kid” was also the place where Dr. Keena, the leader, started to emerge. As we launched a new location and customers cycled through, I suddenly learned lessons that have stood the test of time.
- Sometimes your success requires personal sacrifice.
- Growth and progress require stretching.
- Know what you bring to the team.
- Value everyone’s role.
- Flexibility and adaptability will take you far.
As a seasoned leader, these things are probably second nature. But for new leaders, these things take time, particularly without a mentor. These and more are the types of things that I address in the SUCCESSFUL SUPERVISOR SERIES. Because now, more than ever new supervisors (specifically) need intentional support to be able to endure the ever-present challenges of leadership.
One more thing, in case you are wondering, yes. Yes, I wore the costume.
