While there is no shortage of ideas on how to get that all important buy-in, the path to finding a truly engaging idea can be long. For many leaders, finding the right approach becomes a “hit or miss” proposition. Rocky Romanella, keynote speaker and author, believes that a very special character named Joe Scafone offers a powerful solution for any team or leader in any situation. So who is Joe Scafone?
“In my book ‘Tighten the Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership’, I use over 40 years of experience in supply chain, logistics and transportation, retail, sales and operational management at UPS, and my CEO and Director roles at a company I worked at after my UPS days, to explore the ways a true leader can add value by using a process approach to lead the organization and its people to new levels of success,” Romanella stated.
In an engaging, personal, and witty style, through a fictional character named Joe Scafone, Romanella details how leaders can give their three major constituents equal priority by actively listening to their needs and building strong relationships. By following the steps that are laid out, anyone can learn the key components of Balanced Leadership.
“I believe the true measure of a great leader is someone who leaves things a little better than they found them,” Romanella concluded. “In ‘Tighten the Lug Nuts’, readers follow Joe Scafone as he demonstrates the importance of small acts of kindness, the power that comes with understanding roles, and the freedom that accepting responsibility affords. Readers learn how to ‘tighten the lug nuts’ in their own lives to keep from becoming overwhelmed and to take the steps to becoming a truly balanced and valuable leader.”
In this 5-star rated book on Amazon, Romanella, through Joe Scafone, uses his Executive Business Leadership experiences to explore the ways a true leader can add value as a trusted advisor, mentor, and visionary. He calls it his Balanced Leadership approach, which clearly explains how to give the three major constituents equal priority in the decision-making process.
