WILMINGTON, NC, March 10, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Championship teams are built on solid training, strong communications and a well-executed game plan. The traits of business leaders are comparable to the traits of championship coaches like legendary UCLA coach John Wooden, a coaching icon to many. The most successful team in the NCAA Men's Tournament history has been the UCLA Bruins, who have taken home a record 11 championships, 10 under legendary coach John Wooden between 1964-1975.
While solid training, strong communications and a well-executed game plan are core components of building a championship sports team, these components are also key elements of a successful business or classroom strategy. Adding March Madness into the mix makes it all the more fun and can result in more buy-in on the part of team members or students.
"Consider using March Madness as a theme to create a competition in your area of responsibility - whether in your place of business, or in a classroom where you challenge students to be the best they can be, or as a part of a team building exercise," Romanella stated. "My book,'Tighten the Lug Nuts', will serve as a great resource for this competition and program and for you, as a how-to book for you, the leader."
Rocky had the pleasure of interviewing Coach John Wooden. The interview is available at his website.
A winner of the UPS Chairman's Award for Excellence, Romanella is an energetic keynote speaker and trainer with a legacy of motivating teams to achieve their best. He pulls in audiences with real-life stories from an illustrious career spanning nearly 40 years at one of the most recognized and admired brands in the world, UPS and later as CEO and Director for UniTek Global Services, a mid-cap telecommunications solution company. Rocky brings leadership expertise in supply chain, logistics and transportation, retail, sales and operational excellence strategy, telecommunications engineering/construction management, and installation. Having led many company sales efforts, rapidly building brands, restructuring events, and developing a culture needed to integrate past acquisitions, he inspires audiences to create a unified company with one vision.
In 'Tighten the Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership', Romanella uses his experience in supply chain, logistics and transportation, retail, sales and operational management at UPS, and 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.
In an engaging, personal, and witty style, Romanella details Business Leadership Traits including how they must make their three major constituents equal priority by actively listening to their needs and building strong relationships. By following the steps Romanella lays out, readers can truly learn the importance of Balanced Leadership.

Romanella believes the true measure of a great leader is someone who leaves things a little better than they found them. He has garnered praise for his ability to connect to a wide range of audiences with his storytelling ability and innate charisma. Richard Snowden, President of RavenHouse International called Romanella, "An engaging speaker and facilitator, Rocky leads business executives to break-through results through break-through thinking." Conrad Swanson, Sr. VP Agency Development of Arpin Van Lines Inc. had this to say about Romanella following his keynote at the Arpin Group's annual leadership meeting, "Rocky inspired many to look inward and improve the way they operate their businesses and lead their team members."
