WILMINGTON, NC, March 05, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — We are all leaders in some way. While discussions regarding leadership often revolve around business or politics, it is important to understand that all of us play leadership roles, whether we are a parent, an educator, or are simply acting in a supervisory position of any kind. We therefore have the responsibility to model “What good looks like” Regardless of the role we play, the fundamental concepts remain the same.

Top motivational speaker and bestselling author Rocky Romanella addressed this in a recent article posted on his site at In that article he said in part:

Every organization strives to be an Employer of Choice. This starts by setting clear expectations for the leaders in the organization. It is important for all members of the management team to be consistent in the way they hold themselves, their peers, and employees accountable.

To set that leadership standard, you may consider setting Leadership Expectations. These clearly defined expectations, combined with your values and workplace policies, all provide guidelines for you to model what “Exceptional Leadership Looks Like.”

With that in mind, you are the model for “What Good Looks Like”. Your actions reflect upon your people, and their actions reflect upon your customers and, more important than anything else, become your reputation. As we know, reputations can be created and destroyed in an instant, by even the simplest of acts.

You can take this a step further by asking each person to reflect on the Leadership Expectations, commit to them, and lead their people every day by adhering to them. Ask them to take inventory of their current style and practices. Are they in sync with your overall Leadership Expectations? These answers will help you and your team understand your leadership style and expectations and your relationships with your people and them with theirs.

No matter what your leadership role is, you have a tremendous impact on your people. It is all about alignment and commitment.

Let us start with Values. They are the foundation from which everything we have to offer as a company is based – our processes, services, daily work actions, and commitment to excellence. Our Values, and our adherence to them, set the direction and establish the necessary culture for our organization to succeed. Let us take a look at how we achieve these goals:

Balanced Leadership supports all we do. Our Values provide clarity about who we are as a company, how we will conduct ourselves, and how we wish to be viewed by others. Again: who we are, what we stand for, what we aspire to be, and what we will never compromise. Here are some ways we do it:

We recognize that our people are our most important asset, and we will be regarded as an Employer of Choice.

We believe integrity and excellence are the core of all we do.

Each of us will conduct ourselves with honesty and integrity.

We will adhere to our policies and guidelines. If there is something we doubt, we will raise that doubt until it is addressed.

We make tough decisions, accept responsibility, and report bad news.

We do not stop at the first right answer. We focus on new ways to create solutions.

We embrace change and thoughtfully use processes, technology, and tools for results.

We have a vision and seek ways to transfer that vision into action.

We are committed to supporting a climate for success for all and providing a safe work environment for employees, customers, and the general public.

We are humble and support each other.

We work together as a team, are flexible, and will adapt to changing conditions.

We will be respected leaders among our peers and within the industry.

We will learn and grow from our challenges, and we will celebrate and recognize our success.

We are a company that lives its values.

These values are crucial and define Who We Are, What We Stand For, and What We Will Not Compromise.
