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] At this time of year, we start to plan for next year’s results. Our desktops and computer monitors covered with flowcharts, performance reviews and marketing projections, we start the arduous task of plotting the path forward. Yet, despite our best efforts, we sometimes fall short. It is not so much that we don’t know how to plan, but may be instead that we focus on the wrong things. More often than not, we get caught up in the day to day activities that require us to put out fires and wrestle with ongoing business challenges.
Rocky Romanella’s highly praised 100 day plan offers an easy to implement blueprint for a strategic planning process that is both powerful in approach and elegant in its simplicity. This approach to planning resonates deeply with both new and seasoned team leaders.
The 100 day plan is based on Romanella’s unique 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.
“I believe that when it comes to providing leadership and setting expectations, it starts with me and you as the leader, being clear and concise on the vision for the New Year and the first 100 days,” Romanella stated. “What your people learn and hear first is what they will retain the longest. The speed of the leader determines the pace of the pack and our commitment should be to set the pace. A good plan and vision will give you the ability to start right and stay right throughout the coming year. The plan should be written and communicated so that there is no confusion, to gauge progress and to hold yourself and your people accountable.”
More information on the development of a 100-day business plan and a wealth of other strategic planning material is available in Romanella’s highly praised book, ‘Tighten The Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership’.
