This is Episode 13. Today I sit down with restaurant executive, culture builder, and entrepreneur, Mo Haq.
Mo has an amazing background in the restaurant industry that goes back to his early teen years when he took a job to help support his family when his father fell ill. From those early morning subway rides in New York to his start at Taco Bell and ascension to multi-unit leadership, to a VP of Ops role just a few years later, and then onto Chipotle and beyond, Mo exemplifies GRIT, HUSTLE, INTENTIONALITY, and DETERMINATION.
A proven developer of people, Mo shares his leadership journey and how that intertwines with his love for his family, to produce some incredible results, personally and professionally. Mo is a champion of the underdog, because he was one himself. He knows the value of investing in the people around him because as a young leader someone invested in him.
We talk about so many great concepts and ideas around leadership and culture including the difference between a manager and a leader, living your mission, and investing in the next generation of leaders.
