Then there are those that are doing the right thing both publically and behind closed doors, who continue to motivate and inspire not just their employees, but their followers worldwide.
Here are 10 corporate leaders that honor commitment, passion, and honor in their quest to better their own companies, but more importantly, have that drive to change the world for the better.
1. Richard Branson, Founder at Virgin
It’s Sir Richard Branson to those that know he was knighted by the queen for his work.

2. Dharmesh Shah, Founder at Hubspot
Dharmesh got his start at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This university is regarded as the best United States engineering school, and is number two to only the Indian Institute of Technology which is regarded as number one.
Previous founder on OnStartups.com and the Pyramid Digital Company, he saw early on that there was a need for sales generation, something he was not great at.
Although fantastic at coding and management, he found his weak point. Sales! He decided to create a Customer Relationship Management platform that sought out to listen to their clients and customers, making it cost effective to manage the platform while it created new sales opportunities for the company that used it too. The system allows multiple team members to email prospects and manage sales leads, while giving full transparency on where each communication is at in the conversion funnel. When connected to each team members email, it pulls all communication into the platform to effectively see everyone’s performance.
In 7 years the company went from a bedroom in MIT, to a publically traded company on the Nasdaq. Kudos Dharmesh!
3. Sara Blakely, Founder at Spanx
Sara was always on a quest to find useful, effective ways to help women look and feel their best. Being into fashion and fabric, she used to see dresses and other womens garments to help women look their best. She found a common problem however. This was the belly fat on the lower part of a womens stomach that is always seemed to make them look untoned and overweight.
Sara pitched her product to hundreds of fashion companies that denied her for many many years. She knew had made a garment that would solve womens issues with tight dresses, but needed the people who got it behind it.
All-in-all she fought and fought for many years against the harsh fashion industry, however her persistence was finally rewarded with some luck of the Irish.
She now has a big company that manufactures and distributes these comfortable and flattering womens undergarments worldwide and is an inspiration to women entrepreneurs everywhere.
