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.
All of us are leaders in some way, whether it be in the boardroom, the classroom or our own living rooms. While we tend to think of leadership as something to unique to business, government or perhaps sports, in fact teachers, parents and family members serve a leadership role in the classroom or at home.
The coronavirus lockdown and all that goes with it has created problems for all of us on a scale many of us have never experienced. While we cannot control the situation, we can control our reactions to the situation. As Rocky stated in a recent newsletter, “Being positive in a negative situation is not naive – it’s leadership.” We can turn adversity into opportunity by changing our reaction to the situation. Rocky recently offered a number of tips on how we can use the extra time and changes in our daily routine to move forward with confidence and come out the other side as better leaders.
“During these difficult times, thoughtful and considerate leadership will define our character as a world community and as individuals,” Romanella stated. “It starts with each of us and the Simple Acts of Kindness we display to one another. My thoughts and prayers to all those directly affected and to all of us as we manage through these difficult times.”
Rocky offers the following tips:
We often talk about business, as we do sports, as a team sport. We are learning through these difficult times something we have always known to be true but maybe we have never articulated in this fashion. That LIFE and LIVING TOGETHER as a family, a community, a country and as global citizens is also a TEAM SPORT. We are all individuals contributing our skills and performing tasks such as social distancing, frequent washing of our hands for the good of the team. We all will become healthier and move past these difficult times in our lives, when we win together as a team. Let’s be great teammates!
Go Above and Beyond – Our success through these difficult times will depend on our willingness to perform the measures and tasks our leadership and health care professionals have asked us to perform.
Two important keys to our success in these difficult times; Let’s keep doing the things we are doing well; Correct the things and behaviors we are not doing well, or we are out of compliance in.
Play by the Rules – Rules exist for a reason, whether at work, in sports, on the road and especially during difficult times to avoid chaos. Without rules things become chaotic and potentially dangerous. Rules provide stability and guidance and provide the framework for our actions. We all need to play by the rules during these difficult times.
Commit Yourself to Safety – Safety at work and in ourselves should never be compromised. Totally commit yourself and your families to all safety practices. Understand all the safety recommendations during these difficult times.
Be a considerate co-inhabitant. Our homes, our communities and our country are a shared environment, a shared space. Let’s be considerate of each in our shared space.
Two of the most important words in any language are THANK YOU. Let’s add three more, HOW ARE YOU?
Your Extra Effort can have more impact than you think.
Extra Effort makes for Better Results
Better Results make for a Healthier Country
A Healthier Country makes for a better America
A Healthier Country makes for healthier Families
Healthier families make for prosperous communities
Healthy, prosperous communities make for a healthy and prosperous America
Our common denominator is we are all Americans, a caring country.
