Do You Provide Award-Winning Leadership Training?

Yum! Brands, Inc., is serving up more at its restaurants than a menu of familiar fare. In fact, the world’s largest restaurant company and parent company of KFC, Pizza Hut®, and Taco Bell® offers an award-winning employee leadership training program.

Yum! Brands’ “TAKING PEOPLE WITH YOU” program received a “Gold Award for Excellence” in the category of custom content from Brandon Hall Group, Inc.’s Excellence in Learning, Talent Management, and Sales and Marketing Awards.

The training program is based on the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal best-selling book, TAKING PEOPLE WITH YOU: The Only Way to Make BIG Things Happen, which was written by Yum! Brands Chairman and CEO David Novak.

Released in January 2012, the book provides an insider’s look at the unique leadership program that Novak has developed and taught globally to thousands of managers and franchisees in his 15 years with the company. The book “offers a step-by-step guide to setting big goals, getting others on board, and achieving breakthrough results,” and the related training program is offered globally in 11 languages.

“Our number one goal is to build people capability, and we are proud that our global TAKING PEOPLE WITH YOU training program has been recognized as a gold standard,” said Rob Lauber, vice president, Yum! University, Yum! Brands. “We’re leveraging TAKING PEOPLE WITH YOU to cultivate leaders throughout our organization.”
