Main Story: Lessons From The Book: Tighten The Lug Nuts
The Lesson: Values Matter
It takes the courage of your conviction to make it through the long haul.
Leaders live their values and set the tone from the top.
Leaders can disagree and are often challenged to find the better way. Live by the rule: you can disagree, but you should not be disagreeable or disrespectful.
Be humble and learn everything you can about your job, and then learn some more.
Recognize it is what you do when no one is watching that counts most because it’s the true measure of your character.
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.
I am very interested and am sure you have your own thoughts that you would like to share. Please email me with your ideas about any of the items above at [email protected].

BE THE BEST IN THE INDUSTRY
Rocky Romanella, Sr. Partner at 3SIXTY, shares a popular story he often includes in his keynotes:
I want to let you in on a little secret. It pertains to your relationships, to the pursuit of your goals and dreams, and to the plight of so many across the world. Unless you win the lottery, the truth is you’re going to have to work at whatever it is you hope to achieve in your life. But, it’s how you face it that speaks to your character.
Your true character is defined by your honesty of purpose. Your purpose is sacred and authentic. Honesty is what’s at the core of your moral character. It’s being trustworthy, loyal, fair, sincere and true, even when it is difficult to be. It is not only how you create your values, but also how you add value to the lives of others.
Purpose-driven people put their morals, character and honesty first. Without purpose, we drift. With purpose, we steer. You have the responsibility to yourself and to others to use your best judgment, weigh your options carefully and make the right decisions – even if they’re not the most favorable or popular – even when no one is watching!
When you do that you honor yourself and your values. Wherever your path takes you, know that your trustworthiness is your highest honor. For if you are a trusted leader, others will believe in your vision, mission and values, and trust in you enough to follow you, whether in business or on the battlefield.

Featured Podcasts: John Murphy – Winning Teams Podcast
Rocky appeared with John Murphy on the Winning Teams podcast, discussing his career at UPS. Becoming the leader of a team or perhaps a senior executive is a dream for many people in the business field. What many do not consider is what it really takes to be a leader. Rocky started on the bottom rung of the ladder in 1976 and worked his way up to the boardroom and is now a top motivational speaker.

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, “Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.” 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.
Coach Valvano is remembered for being many things: a player, a coach, a broadcaster, a brother, husband and a father. But above all he was an inspiration. And when he was diagnosed with cancer at 46, he never gave up. Thank you in advance for your generous support and enjoy the book.
The Video Library is Here (And, You Don’t Need a Library Card)
Time is of the essence for all of us. We are overloaded with information – so much so that we simply cannot digest it all. For this reason, I am very excited to announce our new video library.

Looking for a keynote speaker or advisor? You might find just what you are looking for here. New videos are added regularly, so be sure to check back soon.
Take a moment and check out our new commercial for Tighten The Lug Nuts entitled Become A Better Leader.
If you read only one business book this year, this is the one. And if you give only one book as a gift 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.” – Amazon review
Rocky uses his over 40 years of experience in his CEO and Director roles, to explore the ways a true leader can add value as a trusted advisor, mentor, and visionary who uses a process approach to lead the organization and its people to new levels of success. Whether you are a seasoned leader or are taking the first steps to becoming an effective leader, this is one of those books you will refer to over and over again.
“Tighten the Lug Nuts explains why values are the foundation for every goal we hope to achieve. A must read for anyone especially those in roles of responsibility or striving to be the best they can.” – Amazon review
