The pathway he discovered for the realization of that dream is called Creative Followership, and it took him from his first job, delivering groceries on a bicycle at age 12, to establishing his own business as a commercial kitchen design consultant, to his thirty-two-year career with Chick-fil-A, Inc., where he retired as president and chief operating officer. In 2000, Jimmy received the prestigious Silver Plate Award as Chain Fast Service Operator of the Year. Jimmy is the author of Creative Followership: In the Shadow of Greatness, the first book in a series on Creative Followership. Jimmy is a popular speaker, offering presentations on Creative Followership to business and educational audiences.
