Believing that your personhood impacts how you show up, Adam works with his clients to understand who they are as humans first—before leaders. With a curious mindset, he helps them acknowledge their strengths, challenges and where they draw their energy. His coaching style is one of positivity with a focus on leadership effectiveness and its impact to an organization. Together with his clients, Adam helps them find their “it factor”—identifying what sets them apart from other leaders. Then, he works with them to develop a confident humility so they can be the most authentic and effective leader they can be.
Prior to joining Building Champions in 2015, Adam owned and operated highly successful Chick-fil-A restaurants where he developed leaders on his team and effectively grew both the top and bottom lines. With his two different locations, Adam established a proven track record of positively influencing cultures and developing high-performing, healthy teams. As a purpose and mission driven leader, he knew the opportunity to influence the community beyond chicken sandwiches was huge. He pressed into this on both the local level as well as the regional level with his fellow Operators.
Adam lives in Atlanta with his wife Mandy and their two boys. He loves salt water, coaching youth sports and is always planning the next great adventure.
“I cannot call the experience anything less than life changing. The beginning of the [Fundamentals of Self-Leadership Coaching] program was eye opening; it really made me stop and analyze where I was in life both personally and professionally and make some difficult realizations regarding my priorities and convictions. It was as if a fog was lifted and I could see exactly what was important and what I needed to focus on. I have begun looking at my position differently, I have started to approach issues/opportunities with a new attitude, I am looking at my career completely differently, and I have already seen improvements in my personal life and marriage.”
