How to Be a Balanced Leader



One of the most important skills we need to learn as leaders is how to balance things effectively. This week I have the perfect guest to help us with that: keynote speaker and author Rocky Romanella.

On today’s podcast:

  • We’re all leaders
  • What is balanced leadership?
  • What are you trying to accomplish?
  • We need to think about our legacy

We’re all leaders

Rocky believes that we’re all leaders. Sometimes we can get caught up in titles, but at the end of the day we’re all leaders at one time or another.

For him, leadership is leaving things a little better than you’ve found them. Are people better after they’ve interacted with you? Then you’re a leader.

What is balanced leadership?

Rocky noticed that great leaders always keep things in balance. Extremes are generally no good on either side. So how do you find this balance?

When you swing one way too far as a company or a leader, you get out of balance. Rocky began to develop the concept of balanced leadership.

Every time you need to make a decision, challenge yourself with three questions:

  • Am I thinking like a customer?
  • Will my people understand the role that they play and why we’re doing what we’re doing?
  • Am I acting like an owner?

What are you trying to accomplish?

Ask yourself “What is it that I’m trying to accomplish? What are the things that are important to me?”

Each one of us show take inventory of three key things:

  • Who am I?
  • What do I stand for?
  • What won’t I compromise?

Great leaders understand how to accept and handle bad news, they know when to apologize and when to move forward.

We need to think about our legacy

As a leader, you have to believe in your people many times until they’re ready to believe in themselves.

For Rocky, leadership is ultimately about legacy. Things are better because of you and people will remember you for the good things you’ve left behind.

Focus+Work*Belief-Fear=Results

In How to Fast-Track Your Success in 12 Simple Steps, Camilita writes that Focus+Work*Belief-Fear=Results.

Focus means forgetting everything else. Focus has to do with commitment, and commitment means the death of all other options.

First you need to focus, then you need to do the work. When everything is going wrong, that’s the time you have to believe. We all want to quit sometimes, but when we push through the fear of our own selves, that’s when we get the results.

Don’t be afraid to lose

It’s important to set goals of precision. Focus on every little detail. Also, don’t be afraid to quit. You will feel like quitting every single day.

Don’t be afraid to lose, because you will lose and that’s normal. Be willing to do extraordinary things.

Have a bulletproof mindset. That’s where you win or lose, in your own mind. Have a positive mental attitude.

Be steadfast in your efforts

Create something from nothing. If you want to grow your business, find something that everyone else is looking for, create it, and then find multiple ways to make money from it.

Be a giver, not a taker.

Be steadfast in your efforts. Keep going because life happens. You are bigger and better than that.

Focus on income-generating work and have a clear customer plan

Only focus on income-generating work. The reason why most businesses struggle or fail in the first five years is that their focus is not on income-generating work.

The size and quality of your network determine your net worth.

Learn the difference between having a clear customer plan vs a business plan. Very few people today have a customer plan. Ask yourself:

  • What is your customer looking for?
  • What do they want?
  • Is your business customer-led or business plan-led?

Always seek knowledge

Utilize the most important tip for massive growth and success: ASK (Always Seek Knowledge).

We have not because we ask not.

If you need something in business, there is someone who has the key to your next success. The more you ask, the quicker you will grow. What do you have to lose?

Always reinvent yourself and find the people at the top

Find new ways to market your brand, product, or service online or offline. When was the last time you had a launch or a relaunch? Keep people in the loop. Always reinvent yourself.

Go from the top down, not the bottom up. Always go to the decision-makers, not to the gatekeepers. Find the people at the top and ask them.
