WILMINGTON, NC, December 15, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Now is the time to plan for next year's results. The arduous task of plotting the path forward means you're likely bombarded by flowcharts, performance reviews and marketing projections, etc. Yet, despite your best efforts, sometimes plans fall short. If you're like most managers, it is not so much that you don't know how to plan, but maybe instead focus on the wrong things. Often day-to-day activities require constant fire-fighting and wrestling with ongoing business challenges. If this sounds familiar, there is a better path forward.
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 experienced team leaders.
The 100-day plan is based on Romanella's unique concept of Balanced Leadership. The three components in Balanced Leadership are: your customers, your people and your 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 the leader being clear and concise on the vision for the New Year and the first 100 days of it," Romanella stated. A good plan and vision will give you the ability to start right and stay the course throughout the coming year. The plan should be written and well-communicated so that there is no confusion, and designed with a process to gauge progress and hold everyone 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'. Romanella brings these principles to life in his engaging and highly entertaining keynote presentations and breakout sessions. He can work with your team to create a world class business plan, event and training to inspire your team. His keynotes and breakout sessions will help your audiences to stabilize, lead and grow their businesses through his Balanced Leadership approach. Both can provide an education platform tailored to your audience needs.
Rocky has garnered praise for his ability to connect to a wide range of audiences with his storytelling ability and innate charisma. Craig S. Fry, Executive Director Service Specialists Association said after the association's October keynote, "Quite frankly, your keynote address was one of the best we've ever had. It's clear that you spoke to us from your heart. You were presenting, not mere team management principles, but rather a philosophy of life, one that you clearly believe and live by. It was very enthusiastically received." Conrad Swanson, Sr. VP Agency Development of Arpin Van Lines Inc. stated, "Rocky inspired many to look inward and improve the way they operate their businesses and lead their team members."
