Top motivational speaker Rocky Romanella’s highly acclaimed book on leadership, ‘Tighten The Lug Nuts: The Principles Of Balanced Leadership’ has received rave reviews and 5 star ratings for a very good reason. In his book and during his keynote speaking engagements, Romanella presents us with real world, practical advice that helps us understand that balanced leadership principles apply to all of us, as each and every one of us impact the lives of others in many different ways.
These proven principles apply to not only business people, but also to parents, educators, coaches, politicians and leaders of small groups or organizations of any kind.
“Leadership is a concept that is not reserved for or only applies to certain people in business, government, and civic organizations,” Romanella stated. “The reality is that no matter our age, gender, occupation, educational level, or position in life, each of us touches and influences other lives.”
“Through this extension, we are all leaders to someone at some time. It can be a person under our supervision or care, a spouse we honor and live with, or a child we nurture, a student we teach, or a player we coach. It could be as simple as a fellow member of our church or religious affiliation, club, league or association, but it is usually identified by the fact we have made a positive difference through our actions and examples.”
“With this sense of responsibility and being lifelong learners, we are constantly in pursuit of knowledge, whether written or experienced, of how to be a good leader and how to improve our skills. We take great pride in the books we have read and where they sit on the best-seller list. I often find that some of the best examples and learning experiences come from the stories we tell and the experiences we share. Sometimes they come from the stories we learned as children or read to our children as parents or grandparents.”
“Leaders must develop emotional intelligence along with their educational intelligence and business acumen. Sometimes a simple story I find can help people see the bigger picture, promote moral and ethical behavior, and maybe, just maybe, not take ourselves so seriously that we lose sight of the fact that it is not always about us.”
