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' by top motivational speaker Rocky Romanella is all of that and more.
'Tighten The Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership', brings rock-solid leadership advice to the forefront through an engaging and entertaining storytelling format. Many of the Balanced Leadership principles in the book also serve as keystone concepts in his engaging and highly entertaining keynote presentations and breakout sessions.
Rocky explores 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.

A considerable number of readers and reviewers alike have praised 'Tighten the Lug Nuts'. One Amazon review stated, "As a small business owner, I've read a ton of books on business that aim to make you a better leader and entrepreneur. Most are paint by number and give you the impression little thought was put into them, but this book is engaging with a deep personal touch. You can tell the author really cares about his message. It's an entertaining read with a unique look at what it means to be a leader, full of anecdotes that will make you want to be a better person. Definitely recommended."
Another said, "I truly appreciated this book and the author's insights. This book truly exemplifies how important it is to inquire about one's values and their development, execution and commitment through thoughtful, purposeful, intentioned choices and actions, not just professionally but in all aspects of life. It is my contention that this book should be required reading for any course in business ethics!"
A recent review by Online Book Club said, "The title, Tighten the Lug Nuts, is connected to a story within the story. It is one of the most important lessons for every leader."
