Effective Leaders Keep Important Things From Becoming Urgent By Tightening The Lug Nuts Says Top Motivational Keynote Speaker Rocky Romanella

An inspirational keynote speaker and trainer, Romanella is founder and principal of 3SIXTY Management Services, LLC. He has over 40 years of leadership at Fortune 100’s. His approach to leadership can be a game changer for anyone who serves in a leadership role.

Top motivational keynote speaker Rocky Romanella’s book on leadership, ‘Tighten The Lug Nuts – The Principles of Balanced Leadership’, is loaded from cover to cover with practical information that can help leaders become more effective, more productive and more successful. It is not just another “business leadership book.” The deceptively simple concepts Romanella presents can be utilized by anyone who holds a leadership position – parents, educators and others.

One of the most important principles in the book is to prevent important things from becoming urgent. If we ignore something as important as a loose lug nut, our ongoing neglect may become a matter of survival. Hence the need to “tighten the lug nuts.” But how do we begin to do this at the organizational level?

The answer can be found in the five key strategies of the Balanced Leadership model itself:

1. Creating a communication strategy that helps employees become “aware of the big picture”. This strategy will include the tactical approach and method of developing an environment that creates an excitement for information on the direction of the organization.

2. The “art of engagement” which begins with building relationships that allow employees to develop and grow no matter their role in the organization. These relationships will enable leadership to hear the BAD news before an issue becomes a major problem.

3. Having an organization of employees that “act like owners” who are obsessed with the growth and well-being of the organization. It starts with examining commitment from an individual perspective and then leads to the development of work teams that leverages synergies from “one-to-many” in an organization.

4. The ability of sticking with it is always a challenge in any attempt to shift a culture, or to change a process. The focus on “change sustainability” will map out the strategy that introduces the concept of champions taking ownership on specific parts of the plan.

5. Reflection – focusing in on how to stop, pause and move forward. This includes keeping what is working and continuing to redefine what “Being Obsessed with the Front-line” truly means.

Few business books offer new, innovative approaches to leading companies to success. Fewer still speak clearly to the key points necessary to become an effective leader. Only a miniscule number of books could be called a “game changer”. Whether you are a seasoned leader or are taking the first steps to becoming an effective leader, this is one of those books you will refer to over and over again.
