February 08, 2016 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – Values, Inc., the latest book from Dwyer Group Co-Chair Dina Dwyer-Owens, was recently named to the Top Ten Business Books From 2015 in Forbes.
“This book is filled with stories and facts that prove that a value-driven organization can come out on top,” said Shep Hyken, author of the Leadership column in Forbes that ranked the books. “This may be one of the most important books you ever read,” he added.
“This serves as another beautiful validation that the message of Values, Inc. is resonating with people in ways I could have never imaged,” said Dina Dwyer-Owens in a recent blog.
Dwyer-Owens released her book last March, challenging business leaders to focus on values. Her hope was to revolutionize the way business leaders think about success by offering inspiring stories from within Dwyer Group as well as admirable companies, business leaders and even heroes from across the globe who have overcome obstacles using a firm set of values.
Dwyer-Owens has long been associated with her company’s signature Code of Values and the culture it has created for the $1.3 billion organization. Now, in Value’s Inc., she has provided a roadmap for others.
It’s been said that 95 percent of companies that have a code of values don’t even use it. “Values, Inc. invites a movement to live right and do right in business and in life for a world in need of direction,” Dwyer-Owens said.
The Forbes ranking is the latest honor for the author on a long list of achievements, having shared her book and been invited to speak about leading with values for prestigious university scholars, captains of industry and some of the highest ranking leaders in Washington, DC.
