In this episode of The Mentors Radio show, Host Tom Loarie talks with Guest Mentor Bill George, the remarkable former Chairman and CEO of Medtronic who not only transformed Medtronic from a medium-sized company into the global medical technology giant it is today, but who also stepped down as CEO after 10 years as he promised he would do. In case you don’t know, leaving the helm as promised much earlier, especially when influence, growth and profits are exploding, is RARE. It’s unheard of, then and now…And it is a mark of unwavering personal INTEGRITY and ETHICS. In other words, it is the mark of a TRUE LEADER.
Since stepping down as Chairman and CEO of Medtronic, Bill George has dedicated his time and focus to cultivating, training and building up future leaders who value others, and who will lead with integrity, a clear sense of purpose, and a strong desire to make the world better.
