  • Tighten The Lugnuts
  • Free Assessment


In the last issue we asked several questions regarding how you perceive the Essential Ingredients of Leadership.

Here is a summary of the answers we received.

Leadership is about building a bridge to our future. You give your people the opportunity to help build that bridge by communicating and educating each one of them on your vision and strategy using the Essential Leadership Ingredients to communicate, motivate and inspire them.

Leadership is the ability to quickly, accurately and effectively assess:

  • who you are
  • what you stand for, and
  • what you will never compromise

And most importantly, do the value and ethics of the organization match yours and those of the people you manage and does it correspond to what your people, your customers and investors believe to be your strategy, that consistently reflects the brand?

I would love to hear what you think and would greatly value your input. Please give me your thoughts on this list and previous conversations on our main topics. Let me know what YOU would add to the list. Just drop me a quick email at [email protected] with your ideas regarding The Essential Ingredients of Leadership.

Keynote: TD Bank Digital Leadership Conference, March 14, 2019

It was great to address the TD Bank Digital Leadership Conference. We discussed Balanced Leadership, with a particular emphasis on customers and people development.

From a customer perspective, we discussed that the biggest differentiator between us and our competitors is the superior customer experience we provide. During every customer interaction our reputation is on the line.

Our Priority is Customer Satisfaction: Whether on the phone, in person or via electronic communication, genuinely interact and connect with customers, ensure a positive experience and exceed expectations.

Actively Listen to Customer Needs: Consistently demonstrate to customers you are in tune with their needs and are operating in their best interest. Customers know what they want but may not always explain it in a manner which is clear to you. Therefore, it is important effective listening skills are utilized. If you do not understand a request, ask clear, positively articulated questions until you understand. Do not rush customers, allow them at their own pace to discuss what they need. Once customers have expressed their needs confirm your understanding with them to ensure communication is clear.

I participated in a speed mentoring exercise that was world class. We also spoke about how creating a strong culture is critical to your company’s long-term success and growth. It should be desire of the Senior Leadership Team to create the best, the brightest, most informed and best educated management team in the industry.

Coach’s Corner – March Madness and an exclusive never-seen before interview with UCLA Coach John Wooden

In every newsletter I include a quote from UCLA Coach John Wooden, whom I had the great pleasure to interview while I was a leader at UPS. Coach often said, “Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.” Click below to view the full interview.

With March Madness around the corner, please look at the unique and exclusive interview with legendary Coach John Wooden on our website. Coach Wooden was a supporter of the Jimmy V Foundation and in memory of Coach Valvano, who passed away, April 28, 1993, we are remembering Coach Valvano and his fight by donating one dollar to the Jimmy V Fund to find the cure for each copy of Tighten The Lug Nuts sold.

Coach Valvano is remembered for being many things: a player, a coach, a broadcaster, a brother, husband and a father. But above all he was an inspiration. And when he was diagnosed with cancer at 46, he never gave up. Thank you in advance for your generous support and enjoy the book.

What Others Are Saying . . .

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for coming to speak at our SSA Convention this year in Asheville, North Carolina.

As you know, we strive to provide a motivational keynote speaker each year that will be able to grab the attention of our members, motivate them and give them meaningful ideas that take back and apply in their business.

It’s clear that you spoke to us from your heart. You were presenting, not mere team management principles, but rather a philosophy of life, one that you clearly belive and live by. It was very enthusiastically received. Here are just some of the comments I got from our members after your presentation:

“Loved the energy.”
“Very energetic. Great info and all useful.”
“Challenging in a positive way.”
“Relevant. Enjoyable.”
“Bring him back!”

I am especially grateful for the advanced preparation you did, calling our members getting to know the issues they face and tailoring your presentation to the unique needs of our group. You hit this one out of the park.

Leadership is something we all have concerns about. Leadership is not a concept that only applies to certain people in business, government, and civic organizations.

In this book, rated 5 stars on Amazon, I present a powerful overview of the concepts of Balanced Leadership and how each of us as leaders in our own way can make a difference and Leave Our Legacy.
