Remarkable! is a corporate parable written by Chick-Fil-A Vice President David Salyers and speaker/author Dr. Randy Ross. Taking abstract principles and creating a concrete narrative, Remarkable! engages the reader while imparting leadership lessons that can transform one’s workplace culture, one’s own response to life, and one’s personal relationships by introducing the four “maxims of value creation”: creativity (creating value in life); positivity (the by-product of creating value); sustainability (leveraging passion to solve problems); and responsibility (empowerment to create value).


  • Corporate and employee loyalty are at all-time lows. Employees are expenses; employers are a means to an end. This synergistic mentality can be anathema to a productive, loyal workforce. What can make employees pour all of their potential into their jobs? How can a team leader create a sense of loyalty among the team members? How can a corporate leader stop the revolving door of good employees? How should one empower managers to transform their teams? How do these efforts and outcomes affect the bottom line?
  • With the economy still struggling to recover from the recession, organizations may be focusing on numbers rather than the welfare of their valuable employees. What is the relationship between the job satisfaction of an employee and the bottom line of a corporate ledger? What is the difference between employing people and engaging with/investing in people?
  • Where money is typically seen as king, true success actually lies with a culture of selflessness, doing the right thing and building personal relationships. This is counter-cultural in every way – operating as a value creator, not a value extractor.
  • The same thing that will transform a company culture can transform personal and family relationships. What principles transcend context to create success at every point in our lives?
