Terry Looper, CEO of Texon LP, a midstream energy company, tells us that by adopting an employee-first organizational culture, his company saw 32 years of profits! So while it may seem counterintuitive, when Christian leaders put employees before profits, they maximize profits! Sometimes Christ-like leadership seems the opposite of what we need to do to remain competitive. But when we follow God’s ways, we always win. If you’re an avid listener, you know this approach is true for Bobby, too – when he implemented core values, he saw revenue grow by 500% during a recession! Tune in to hear how making money is a by-product of a Christ-like organizational culture and core values. You’ll also hear Terry and Bobby’s journeys and the reflection it took to unearth deep and lasting core values that do not change!
