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. In addition, 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.

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. In fact, 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, 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. Read More >

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” (i.e., fully aligned with the organization’s mission and vision) and, also passionate about making themselves better but also their organization better. The real pathway to achieving sustained success in any organization lies truly in how effectively a culture of “centeredness” is created and sustained.
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 become the best they can be every day? It is through “centeredness”, that passion, happiness, joy, and true engagement emerges. However, it is culture that drives 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 are 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?
We believe the Stealth Cultural Transformation Model™ provides a convincing answer to this critical question. This Model was initially researched by John Mattone in 2011 and 2012 and highlighted in his earlier book, Talent Leadership as well as Cultural Transformations. It offers a compelling, symbolic way to understand how leadership, talent, and culture all combine to ultimately determine if your organization will succeed or fail. They are, in fact, the ultimate leading indicators to achieving sustained operating success.
