Acknowledge your talents, and as quickly as possible gain confidence in yourself, so that you can be a genuine, authentic contributor and not all that worried about what other people think.

This is the essence of servant leadership – to create a caring workplace that meets the needs of the people, so that they can give their very best to the performance of the enterprise.

Cheryl Bachelder, CEO Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen

Cheryl Bachelder doesn’t just believe in servant leadership, she lives it and has built it into the management structure of Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen which has over 2,000 restaurants globally. As CEO, Cheryl is zealous about operational excellence. She understands that this is possible only when people are given the environment, tools and support necessary to discover the best that they have to offer.

Cheryl grew up experiencing different cultures and meeting a wide variety of people as her father relocated the family for his work. She enjoyed the moving and appreciates that it gave her a unique set of people skills. Though her first college foray was in music – piano – the solitary nature of the practice schedule wasn’t a fit for this extroverted leader. Visits to plants in Japan and South Korea with her dad awakened a keen interest in leadership and global business.

One of the foundational pieces to her management philosophy is that when people know why they are doing what they are doing, they will invest themselves and give the best that they have. It was natural for Cheryl to develop her own presentation and online course called “Defining Your Personal Purpose.” Popeye’s uses it to teach its support team members and you can access it all on Cheryl’s blog: Purpose of Leadership.
