In today’s business world, we find ourselves in a conundrum: all businesses crave superior leadership, yet there remain relatively few truly great leaders. 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. And companies are having difficulty finding and grooming the next generation of leaders to handle the fiercely competitive atmosphere and lightening fast pace of change that defines our era.

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.

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 eveloping 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.
