    Companies that Do Good and Foster Strong Ethics Outperform Peers, says guest and remarkable CEO Dan Hesse

    Companies that Do Good and Foster Strong Ethics Outperform Peers, says guest and remarkable CEO Dan Hesse

    In today's episode of The Mentors Radio, host Tom Loarie talks with former Sprint turn-around CEO Dan Hesse "Just Capital" and why "doing good" matters in any company, of any size. They also discuss a new values-based metric system aimed at motivating and improving corporate ethics and, in turn, positively impacting customers, clients, shareholders, employees and communities. The truth is that even facing challenging economic headwinds, companies performing well in ethics and in doing good—who really follow through on values—do not sacrifice returns. Just Capital's rankings prove that reality.

Anastasia Violet Lipske ,

So Glad I Discovered this Show!

I just discovered the show and went straight to the June 25, 2022 "A Rare Treat" episode and I'm so glad I did. In this episode you get to hear the backstory on the three hosts of this podcast which really helped me to better understand where they're coming from.

If you are new to this show, I highly recommend you start there! I did and now I'm listening to other episodes.

What I especially loved is the high integrity of these men and how they mentor others to hold to ethical values in all they do. This is a powerful message that I believe is lost these days. The fact that ethically based businesses have been found to be 8x more successful just goes to show we don't need to participate in the dog-eat-dog world to get ahead in business.

Thank you, Tom, John, and Ric, for lighting the way to mentor and lead from integrity!

Thomas Loarie , A True Mentor

In a lifetime we have many people that come and that go throughout the years. And then there are those rare few that are a constant; a beacon of bright light, through the joyful times and the times of great sorrow. Thomas Loarie is that one in a million, A True Mentor. He is always wise and always supportive with a loving, non-judge-mental heart. I am forever grateful to have him in my life now for over three decades.
