Main Story: Lessons From The Book: Tighten The Lug Nuts

The Lesson: Never allow things to affect you more than you can affect yourself.

– As things move from important to urgent, people begin to get overwhelmed.

Tightening the lug nuts in a timely fashion ensures an efficient use of time and minimizes the number of urgent balls to juggle.

– It allows you the opportunity to be the architect of your own destiny.

Over the next few editions of our newsletter we will explore the many concepts and thoughts from the book, Tighten The Lug Nuts, and how it can be your guide in business and life, both personally and professionally.

Rocky Romanella, Sr. Partner at 3SIXTY, shares some important Balanced Leadership Concepts:

The best leaders thoughtfully manage their business based on the principles of Balanced Leadership. This is where we, as leaders, walk the talk. Where we:

Think like a customer by approaching each challenge as a true solutions provider. By watching you, your people need to embrace this concept so your people think like a customer in all they do. They consider the business from the eyes of the customer and this guides their decisions and actions.

Feel like a valuable contributor by knowing your work and your team’s work matters and never compromising on safety. When you feel valued, you are empowered. You make smart decisions. By doing so, you create an uncompromising culture of integrity, honesty, respect and service.

Act like an owner by understanding the business and your role in what leads to success. When you consider this business as if it’s your own, you pay careful attention to all of the above – your customers and people – and more.

I believe in the Balanced Leadership philosophy along with eight drivers of success that are relative to all businesses. I called them the Big 8. They are key drivers of success that can become the roadmap of success for a business.

Please feel free to share your thoughts about values and integrity by email: [email protected]

Coach’s Corner – 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, ““Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” Click below to view the full interview.

If you play a coaching role (and we all do), 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.

Thank you in advance for your generous support and enjoy the book.

If you read only one business book this year, this is the one.

Few business books offer new, innovative approaches to leading companies to success. Fewer still speak clearly to the key points necessary to become an effective leader. Only a miniscule number of books could be called a “game changer”. Tighten The Lug Nuts is all of that and more.

“After a rich career that is still going, Rocky shares valuable insights on how to be a leader in a holistic way – by marrying his life philosophies with his business acumen, and telling it in an airplane trip setting that grabs and holds attention by being simple and profound at the same time. This is a great read for anyone who at any time is in a leadership position – which as Rocky points out, is all of us at some point in our lives. So, it is a great read for all, but especially for business leaders who want to hone their approach and be proactive about their legacy. Well done Mr. Romanella, thank you for taking the time and care to share this wisdom.” – Amazon review, Javier C.
