Book Description

In today’s business environment, leaders at all levels are facing enormous challenges when it comes to achieving and sustaining breakthrough operating results. Globalization, economic change, more stringent regulation, and tougher governance make realizing shareholder value increasingly difficult.

Intelligent Leadership is written for leaders who want to become more effective, strategic, operationally focused, and balanced. It is for leaders who are striving to take control of their destiny and become the best they can be.

In this groundbreaking book, leadership coach John Mattone—recently named to the “guru radar” by the prestigious Thinkers50—taps into his years of experience working with high-achieving professionals to give readers a roadmap for developing and mastering their executive maturity.

Supplying three unique tools—the Wheel of Leadership Success, Map of Leadership Maturity, and the Leadership Enneagram—the book helps readers calibrate their abilities so they can simultaneously focus on their strengths and address their weaknesses. The goal is to improve key tactical competencies (such as critical and strategic thinking, decision-making, talent and team leadership, and communication) and integrate them with equally important inner traits like values, character, and beliefs in order to achieve their leadership potential.

Featuring best practices, authoritative research, practical assessments, and enlightening examples of both good and bad leadership, this book equips readers with the knowledge, skills, and passion they need to become the leaders they were meant to be.

By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 23, 2013
Format: Hardcover
John Mattone is convinced (as am I) that identifying and developing high-potential and emerging leaders "is and will continue to be one of the top business issues facing CEOs" and other senior-level leaders. In her brilliant book, Growing Great Employees: Turning Ordinary People into Extraordinary Performers, Erika Andersen explains how and why great leaders resemble gardeners who have a "green thumb." She agrees with Mattone that, now and in years to come, "All great leaders need to have a very clear mental picture of what capability, commitment, and alignment constitute. All great leaders need to exactly what the picture looks like for themselves in their particular organizations." This conceptual capability is among those that define what Mattone characterizes as "intelligent leadership." Although some great leaders simply have "the right stuff," Mattone suggests that the vast majority of great leaders -- more than 95 percent -- "have become great leaders through personal choice." They make a conscious decision to develop their own character and competence. They also make a conscious decision to support that same process of development by others.

I commend Mattone on his skillful use of several reader-friendly devices, including a unique explanation, "Using the Appendixes" (Pages 159-223) at the conclusion of the first chapter. Also, "Tips" section (Chapters 5-13) accompanied by "Awareness" diagnostic exercises and several Exhibits that illustrate key points such as those, for example, in Chapter 2: "The 3C Pyramid," Mattone's "Wheel of Intelligent Leadership(tm)," " Predictive Connections," "Critical Thinking," "Decision Making," Strategic Thinking," "Emotional Intelligence/Leadership," and "Communication Skills.
