The Penn State Berks Bookstore will hold a book signing for Ronald Roberts, Instructor in Management at Penn State Berks, and his new book, The Well-Balanced Leader: Interactive Learning Techniques to Help You Master the 9 Simple Behaviors of Outstanding Leadership, on Tuesday, April 3, 2012, from 4:00–6:30 p.m.

In this book, Roberts tells the reader to “Empower your people, your company—and yourself—with leadership egolibrium.” Egolibrium is defined as the ability to toggle between egocentric and “other-centric” attitudes, values, and behaviors for organizational success.

According to Roberts, “Everyone’s behaviors fall somewhere between each dichotomy. Using the activities, action steps, games, and thought exercises included for each pair, you’ll figure out exactly where your behaviors land, and then learn how to move that position in one direction or the other to find the right balance or your specific needs.”

The publisher’s web site provides the following description of The Well-Balanced Leader: “In The Well-Balanced Leader, top experiential, accelerated-learning trainer Ron Roberts shows you how to identify your strengths and weaknesses in the nine most critical behavioral areas. He helps you “unstick” yourself from behavioral patterns that damage your influence as a leader, your relationships with those you lead, and the effectiveness of your organization.

“The Well-Balanced Leader provides valuable insight into the inner workings of great leadership, along with activities, games, and exercises to determine where you excel—and where you fall short. It empowers you to strike a balance among the needs of the people you lead, your own needs, and the needs of the organization; become more conscious of what motivates you, drives your behavior, and determines how you relate to others; and think before you speak and respond to every situation with measured behavior. With The Well-Balanced Leader, you’ll learn how to alter your behavior in ways that benefit your people, contribute value to your organization, and launch yourself to the highest level of success.”

Roberts is one of today’s top consultants and trainers in the area of accelerated experiential learning. He frequently serves as keynote speaker at national conferences and professional meetings. Roberts is president of Action Centered Training Inc., ACT Government Support Services, and ACT Games, LLC, where he has trained executives, managers, supervisors, and line staff in all phases of industry, corporate, and government.
