In this episode, The Mentors Radio host Tom Loarie knocks it out of the ballpark in an absolutely inspiring interview with multiple award-winning boxing champ Hector Colón as Hector talks about his remarkable journey from the boxing ring to the board room. You’ll hear first-hand, real-world experience on the power of self-discipline, focus, having a higher “why” and purpose, and on always—ALWAYS—putting others before yourself.
Now president and CEO of Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan (LSS), even though he’s not Lutheran or Norwegian—a rarity in the organization’s leadership. Under Colón’s visionary and innovative leadership, LSS has adapted new models and business strategies to increase relevancy and operational efficiency. In a nutshell, Hector Colón took the organization from a deficit of $1MM to a thriving profit which has enabled the organization to invest in further outreach. ALL he learned in leadership tracks back to an amazing boxing coach and his own willingness to be teachable, to listen and learn, to act always with integrity and self-discipline, and to put others first.
