Do you often think about leaving the corporate world to begin a new,
exciting chapter in your life running your own lucrative executive coaching business?

Are you inspired by the thought of “paying it forward” helping leaders, future leaders and organizations achieve their greatest potential?

when you work, how you work and where you work?

About the Opportunity

From John Mattone, himself…

“I see Intelligent Leadership Executive Coaching (ILEC) as filling a massive void in the world of executive coach franchising. Most business coach franchises tend to dabble in leadership and executive coaching and frankly they lack the depth, authority and pedigree required to be successful in positioning, selling and delivering the world-class executive coaching that sophisticated clients demand in today’s VUCA world. We believe ILEC will provide massive opportunities to experienced leaders looking to leave the corporate world and pursue the next exciting phase of their life and careers and upon being awarded an ILEC franchise, they will learn and apply my powerful IL philosophy, process, content and tools they will need to really make a difference helping solve the global leadership problem—which includes developing stronger leaders at all levels, accelerating the development of high potentials and millennial emerging leaders, and helping organizations build and sustain strong cultures. These are the keys to every organization achieving and sustaining success.”

The ideal ILEC franchise owner is a successful, experienced leader who is looking for the “next chapter” in their professional life; or, they currently own a business-to-business services company such as a consultancy (human resources or strategic management), an executive coaching firm, a training company, a boutique retained executive search firm or corporate accounting firm and they want to add a best-in-class, world-renowned brand to their portfolio of product and service offerings adding prestige to their brand while multiplying opportunities for revenue growth, profit and value.

For those searching for a rewarding and meaningful next chapter in their professional life…

We are looking for experienced leaders who have been executives, managers, coaches, trainers and go-to problem solvers. This is your opportunity to build and grow your own business helping leaders and future leaders become better leaders and help clients build strong cultures that drive sustained operating results. This is your opportunity to achieve your dream of “paying it forward” while earning and enjoying lucrative rewards in an industry and coaching segment experiencing unprecedented hyper-growth, under John Mattone, the world’s #1 executive coach and coaching brand. You will learn to replicate the philosophy, process, templates, tools and strategies that John Mattone and his team have created and perfected over the past 10 years that have contributed to the global strength of the John Mattone and Intelligent Leadership brand. As part of your training, you will work directly with John Mattone as well as his master trainers and advisors and you will enjoy ongoing personal coaching from John and his team—whether you need help preparing for a meeting, writing a proposal, even having John on important calls.

If you’ve answered YES to the first question and most of the other questions (from either column), here are a few words from Intelligent Leadership Executive Coaching (ILEC) Co-Founder, John Mattone about joining the ILEC family.

“If I Did It, So Can You!”

When I left the corporate world at 55 and I told my family, friends and colleagues that I was leaving to re-start a consulting/coaching firm that failed the first time, most were shocked. My wife, Gayle, said “you have my support and blessing just don’t mess up like you did the first time”! All I had to hear were those words of support and then I made a promise to her and my four adult children that I was going to succeed. The next day, I felt unleashed! I will never forget that feeling and trust me, I still feel that way today.

As you think about embarking on your own new journey, I want you to know that if I was able to do this—so can you! I promise if you let me (us) show you the way to building a lucrative, rewarding executive coaching practice, you will succeed. It will be my (our) privilege to work with you, help you, coach you and give you everything—my heart, mind and soul so you achieve all that you want and must achieve in your professional and personal life.

What Are Other Top International Executive Coaches Saying About Being Mentored by John Mattone?

“It is an absolute pleasure to recommend John Mattone. Recently, I wanted to put the spotlight on my very own personal development as a Coach and started to look into various programs offered around the world. The pre-requisite that I wanted with my investment and time was the person who I would be learning from had to be at the very top of his/her game; the program or course had to validate my own work; and the course or program had to continue to ultimately be of greater benefit to my clients. In my research I found so many people doing the same old same old stuff. But this was not the case when I came across John Mattone. A guy at the very top of his game and making a real difference to the world we all live in. I realised looking more into what John is trying to do and offering me as a Coach I had found my place. The time I have spent with John he has widened my own learnings and really made me keep pushing forward with my clients. I look forward to imparting my knowledge here in New Zealand and seeing my clients fly. John thank you so very much for your time, thoughts and constant encouragement to be the best. Our home is open to you (and your family) if and when you arrive on these shores”.
Nick Roud – Coach, Roud Career Coaching.

“I must tell you that working with John Mattone is amazing. I have done ICF, learned a lot and been using it. But John’s philosophy, process and tools are very practical and holistic in approach. I always felt that since a leader is also an individual, a holistic development is a must for sustained change to happen. And I loved your slide on the Inner core and Outer core powering the 4 As (Altruism, Affiliation, Achievement and Abundance). By doing this, we are actually impacting not just the Leader but the whole organization. All of this deeply resonates with my core beliefs about real transformation – Helping people become the best versions of themselves. I am deeply moved and inspired. Hence felt like saying a big THANK YOU!
