The Value of Core Values


The reality is that every leader and organization operates according to a set of values. The Value of Core Values sets us up to address a set of critical questions: Do you know what those values are? What do your employees, customers, suppliers, and others think those values are? Are those values the ones for which you want to be known and which lead to success?

This book contains a series of engaging practical stories of real leaders who have answered these questions and successfully managed to shape the culture of their companies based on their core values. Most importantly, it lays out a path for those who would follow their examples.

The Value of Core Values should be required reading for leaders at all levels in both the public and private sector.
