The Intelligent Leader
Unlocking the 7 Secrets to Leading Others and Leaving Your Legacy

In today’s business world, we find ourselves in a conundrum: all businesses crave superior leadership, yet such leadership is in massive short supply. While there have never been so many books, blogs, speakers, and seminars on leadership, global organizations are finding that the supply of leadership talent is significantly lagging the supply of raw intellectual horsepower. There is no shortage of intellect in the world of business; however, when it comes to superior leadership, most global organizations are realizing how difficult it is to compete simply because they just don’t have enough great leaders in their ranks. Besides, the challenge of preparing the next generation of leaders to handle the fiercely competitive global landscape and lightning-fast pace of change that defines this era is proving almost insurmountable.

John Mattone has found a solution to this leadership paradox and developed an approach that cuts right to the core of what holds leaders back from greatness and future leaders from achieving their potential. It’s what has made him the world’s top executive coach, 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 now also in his newest Wall Street Journal bestseller, The Intelligent Leader and his powerful keynote, based on the book.

Key Elements of John’s Presentation:

  • Think Different; Think Big
  • The Power of the “Vulnerability Decision”
  • Leveraging “Gifts” and Addressing “Gaps”
  • The Courage to Execute as the Instigator to Agility in Learning and
  • Innovation!
  • Possessing the ‘Privilege Mindset”
  • Being Vigilant
  • Course-Correcting


Intelligent Leadership
What You Need to Know to Unlock & Unleash Your Potential

In 2015, John Mattone’s Intelligent Leadership, along with Tony Robbins’ Creating Lasting Change and John Maxwell’s 5 Levels of Leadership were named the three Top Advanced Leadership Development Programs that Change Lives!

This powerful program is based on John Mattone’s Inc. Magazine/CEO Read bestseller, Intelligent Leadership. John will teach you the principles that make him the man that leaders and future leaders all around the world turn to for game-changing insights on how to overcome their self-imposed limiting thoughts and habits. He reveals his key insights for unlocking and unleashing greatness in yourself, your teams and your organization so you can create a compelling, winning culture that drives operating results.
John Mattone utilizes his proprietary “Leadership Maturity Model” as the foundation for teaching leaders the predictive components that unlock and unleash their full potential, all in support of driving sustained operating performance.

  • What I Learned Coaching Steve Jobs—Lessons Learned
  • You Can and Must Create Your Compelling Future—For Others; Your Family; Your Organization and Yourself


IGNiTE Your Inner-Core
LiVE the Life You Deserve

What makes John Mattone’s approach to leadership and helping people achieve lasting life success so unique, is his focus on helping people develop what he calls their “inner core,” which requires that they get in touch with their deeper purpose, strengthening their character, and clarifying their values. This sets his philosophy apart from the many leadership and life development approaches that try to “steal first base” by skipping over this critical foundational piece and focusing more on “outer core” skill development—like strategic thinking, decisiveness, and the drive for results. And, while these “hard” skills are important for competent leadership and life success, John Mattone has found that developing an individual’s inner core is the key to unlocking deeper leadership and life potential. Mattone has found again and again that an individual’s capacity for improvement in their outer core—whether they want to become a better leader, better parent, better family member, better community servant, a better spouse, etc., is directly tied to the strength, vibrancy, and maturity of their inner core. This powerful and truly game-changing keynote will ignite your soul and show you the pathway to achieving and living a life that brings abundance to others—and yourself. This is the life you deserve to live.

Key Elements of John’s Presentation:

  • It’s Not About the Person You Want to Become; It’s About the Person You Must Become.
  • The Power of Being Vulnerable
  • Knowing Your Gifts and Being Proud to “Explode” Them
  • Knowing Your Weaknesses and Having the Courage to Address Them–Always
  • The 4 Values that Will Bring You Success and Happiness
  • The Mindset of “Duty” versus “Entitlement
  • The Best Predictor of Your Future Is Not Your Past.


Transforming Culture
The Road to Reinvention & Renewal.

In this power-packed program, based on John Mattone’s Amazon and Inc. Magazine 2016 Bestseller, Cultural Transformations, John reveals the critical steps that must be planned-out and executed for any organization to create and sustain a renewed, winning culture that engages, inspires and unleashes talent in support of driving breakthrough results.

The road to reinvention and renewal for any organization is based on having a workforce—from top to bottom, who are “centered”, happy, and passionate about making themselves better but also their organization better. The real pathway to achieving sustained success in any organization lies in creating a culture of “centeredness”.

The challenge for global organizations as well as the small to mid-sized entrepreneurial organizations is not “how do we make our people happy”? The real challenge is “how do we ensure that all our people are “centered” so they are poised and passionate to be the best they can be every day? It is through “centeredness”, that passion, happiness, joy and true engagement happens. However, it is culture that drives happiness and engagement and, ultimately, it is culture that drives operating success.

Culture is the foundation from which successful organizations are built—however, most struggle to create an environment in which employees can be fulfilled, effective in their work, and feel “unleashed”. What exactly is it that makes some organizations achieve and sustain breakthrough success, while others struggle with transforming their cultures, whether it involves crafting a new compelling vision and culture or merging cultures?

Key Elements of John’s Presentation:

  • Research and Latest Thinking: Leadership, Talent & Culture are “Leading Indicators” that Predict Sustained Operating Success
  • Roadmap of Cultural Transformation to Align with Company Vision, Mission & Purpose
  • What is Culture
  • The 5 Cultures of Culture
  • Transforming Culture—The 6 Critical Steps


Intelligent Leadership for Millennials

“Leadership is adopting the responsibility to uphold the highest level of Character, Competence, and Commitment each day.”
– Trevor Maloney, Millennial Expert and Co-CEO of Intelligent Leadership and Beyond, LLC a John Mattone-Global, Inc. Affiliate

Organizations all over the world are hiring millennials for their incredible learning ability, talent, and drive! Millennials all over the world are hungry for more and ready to do whatever it takes to achieve what they value most.

However, millennials are often misunderstood as “entitled,” “selfish” and “non-committal.” Some of these misrepresentations are holding them back from becoming all that they are called to be and unlocking their full potential both professionally and personally. In my experiences working as Chief Development Officer at John Mattone Global and mentoring other young professionals through training and speaking, I have found that leadership truly starts from within the individual and serves as the catalyst for our success in the world.

Are you passionate about unlocking your potential and becoming the Intelligent Leader that exists within you? If so, I would love to discuss the opportunity to speak at your next event!

It is my blessing to serve you – together, we can revolutionize the way that young professionals both discover and pursue their greatest work and life aspirations!

Key Elements of Trevor’s Presentation:

  • Response-ABLE leadership – Everything You Do Matters
  • Lead from within – Igniting Your Character
  • Sharpen the Saw – Competence Hierarchy
  • Overcome the Fear of Commitment
  • Become Legacy-Driven – Start with the End in Mind
