WILMINGTON, NC, December 15, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Thousands of books have been written on the subject of leadership. Keynote speakers on the subject number in the tens of thousands. Leadership is something that greatly concerns us all. Whether it's business, government or any other type of organization, leaders set the tone of any organization or group from the top down.
Leaders are not only found in business or government however. Personal leadership styles will affect spouses, children, students or anybody else within a particular sphere of influence. While leadership (good or bad) is a primary focal point for most of us, there is another concept that supersedes any leadership style or strategy.
Without a strong set of values, the best leadership strategy can go awry. With a good value structure in place, the worst leadership approach can right itself and eventually lead to the desired outcome.
Rocky Romanella is a successful keynote speaker and author of a cutting edge book on leadership entitled 'Tighten The Lug Nuts'. He puts values front and center and demonstrates why our core values should underlay everything we attempt, regardless of the roles we play.
"Values are all about people and managing acceptable behavior," Romanella stated. "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.
"It starts with creating a strong value system, which then must relate to your personal or professional mission and vision. Your personal brand. It must be a guide for all you do. It must align with your personal value system.
"In business, it should start with the people you recruit and hire, in your personal life it may be the people you choose to associate with as friends, business partners and acquaintances."
