John Mattone is the #1 Executive Coach in the world and he alone has been awarded so many honours and awards. Author of 9 books. In todays podcast we talk at length about his 10th and soon to be released book The Intelligent Leader - Unlocking the 7 Secrets to Leading Others & Leaving your Legacy.
What makes Mattone’s approach to leadership intelligent is his focus on helping leaders and aspiring leaders to develop what he calls their “inner core,” which requires that they get in touch with their deeper purpose, strengthen their character, and clarify their values. This sets Mattone’s philosophy apart from the many leadership approaches that try to “steal first base” by skipping over this more foundational inner work and focusing on the “outer” competencies—things like strategic thinking, decisiveness, the ability to hold complexity, and the drive for results.
Of course these “hard” skills are important for competent leadership, but Mattone has found that developing the inner core is the key to unlocking deeper leadership potential, and really moves the needle in improving a leader’s performance. In fact, Mattone has found again and again that a leader’s capacity for improvement in all of the “outer” competencies is entirely dependent on the strength and depth of their inner core. The 7 Dimensions of Intelligent Leadership are the connective tissue that weaves the inner and the outer together.
The 7 Dimensions of Intelligent Leadership
In The Intelligent Leader, John guides you through his 7 secrets of Intelligent Leadership, using a variety of real world examples, tools, and assessments:
1. Thinking Differently, Thinking Big
2. The Vulnerability Decision
3. Having a Mindset of Entitlement versus a Mindset of Duty
4. Leveraging Your Gifts and Addressing Your Gaps
5. Having the Courage to Execute with Pride, Passion, and Precision
6. Staying Present and Being Vigilant
7. Course Correction
John Mattone has found a solution to this leadership paradox and developed an approach that cuts right to the core of what holds leaders and aspiring leaders back from greatness. It’s what has made him the world top executive coaches, the “coach of coaches,” and what has drawn Fortune 500 CEOs—from the late Steve Jobs to PepsiCo’s Roger Enrico—to seek his counsel. And fortunately for the business world, Mattone’s secrets are no longer being shared exclusively in boardrooms and executive suites, but are now available to anyone who wants to unlock their leadership potential in his newest book, The Intelligent Leader.
