Happy World Values Day: Greg Nathan Talks Franchise Values & Culture

Tomorrow is World Values Day and though many of these “extra” holidays can seem unnecessary or even silly, THIS one is near and dear to my heart. At SPEAK! we operate on five core values, which we strive to manifest in each interaction: integrity, kindness, respect, trust, communication & FUN! And SO many of our franchise friends have cultures based on their values as well—it’s one of the reasons that I LOVE franchising.

Recently, I sat down with franchise relationships expert, Greg Nathan to talk about how values, both franchise and personal, translate into franchise culture.

And in case you’ve missed it, we’ve been featuring Greg Nathan all month, here are the first two conversations in the series:
