The Intelligent Leader

Unlocking the 7 Secrets to Leading Others and Leaving Your Legacy

The Intelligent Leader by John Mattone was a Forbes #1 Best Leadership Book of 2020, Amazon Bestseller, Soundview Best Business Book of 2020, and #63 Top Leadership Book of all time by Bookauthority.org, 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.

The New NLP Guide to Mind, Body & Spirit And Understanding How Best To Use Your Brain

This is a book of tools and techniques to assist a person through their life with more inner power and optimism. Much of the influence for this book has come from NLP. My intention is to put this information in terms that anyone can understand. This is a compilation of what I have learned and what I teach others. It is about understanding and using the whole self, (body, mind and spirit) for a better improved life. The exciting news is that anyone can discover how to effectively unlock the inner powers and find the most important keys to achieving life’s greatest outcomes and desires.

We learn and remember by experience, and experience is a neurological process. The brain is where it begins. When you use it, it grows and your mind produces results. The more people learn the more capacity they have to learn even more. This applies to the mind, which is a product of the brain and the whole you. There is an old proverb that says “Knowledge is only a rumour until it is in the muscle.” As you read this book, and do the exercises it will give you a way to build and expand your brain mind muscle. https://theblythcentre.com/publications/
