March 26, 2015 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas - Now, more than ever, the business community needs a return to values-based operations, says acclaimed author and speaker Dina Dwyer-Owens in her new book Values, Inc.
"It's been said that 95 percent of companies that have a code of values don't even use it," Dwyer-Owens said. "You see examples of this everywhere and it is disturbing. I want people to see that by leading with values and taking a stand, they can make a difference and change the world."
In Values, Inc. Dwyer-Owens hopes to revolutionize the way business leaders think about success by offering inspiring stories from admirable companies, business leaders and even heroes from across the globe who have overcome obstacles using a firm set of values.
As Co-Chair of The Dwyer Group, Dwyer-Owens has long been associated with her company's signature Code of Values as the heart of the growth and success of the $1 billion organization, which she detailed in her first popular book Live R.I.C.H. Now she is providing a roadmap for others.
"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 says.
The book's foreword by internationally recognized speaker, consultant and author Brian Tracy underscores that message, saying, "In our fast-moving world today, your values serve as an anchor – a foundation upon which you can build a wonderful life, characterized by self-respect and personal pride."
