Six Leadership Characteristics of Truett Cathy

September 14, 2014

Truett Cathy’s legacy will surely be most recalled as the founder of Chick-fil-A, but I hope his personal and leadership characteristics will not be forgotten either. Those characteristics were summarized in a September 13, 2014 Wall Street Journal column by Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO of Coca-Cola who referred to Cathy as “a longtime business partner, and dear friend and a teacher.”

Kent listed the following six characteristics as the the way Cathy approached business, people and community.

1. He believed in himself. 2. He worked hard. 3. He embodied the culture he wanted to build, i.e. he walked the talk. 4. He never stopped innovating. 5. He was generous. 6. He stayed humble.
