A highly sought 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 and most recently served as Chief Executive Officer and Director for UniTek Global Services, after retiring from a 36-year career with UPS.[CITY STATE DATE] The best corporate motivational speakers and keynote speakers, those at the very top of the list, have some key skills in common. They have developed the ability to energize, inspire, motivate and engage their audiences. Some leadership motivational speakers take keynote speaking to entirely new levels however. Rocky Romanella is one of those rare leadership motivational speakers who teaches leaders how to forge a dynamic leadership team based on the all-encompassing concept of Balanced Leadership.
The three components in Balanced Leadership are Our Customers, Our People and Our Stakeholders. All of this is built on a framework that puts less emphasis on “doing things right” and instead focuses on “doing the right thing” for those three groups.
“Creating a strong culture is critical to your company’s long-term success and growth, Romanella stated. “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.”
“In the service business, people are our most important asset. The time we spend with our people is an investment in the future, not an expense or burden on our time. This time you spend with your people is an investment.”
“You cannot successfully grow your business without an investment in people. This is an important first step to building a performance culture. This investment in your people will result in successful results for your company and personal and professional growth for you.”
“We must view the business through the eyes of a leader. As your company is evolving into a performance-driven organization it will be connected by the principles of Balanced Leadership.”
This is where every leader should:
• Think like a customer by approaching each challenge as a true solutions provider.
• Feel like a valued individual by knowing your work matters and you are part of the solution not part of the problem, and you will never compromise on safety.
• Act like an owner by understanding the business and your role in what leads to success.
• Process ties it all together and allows us the ability to replicate the results over time and new people.
“To move forward, you will need to embrace this Balanced Leadership philosophy along with the goals and objectives though walking the talk and your daily actions. Your success will be measured by the degree to which everyone in your organization at every level begins to understand, embrace, emulate, and execute the vision and strategy. In my view, leadership is about building a bridge to the future. You give your team the opportunity to help build that bridge by communicating and educating each one of them on the vision and strategy.”
