John Mattone


Unlocking the 7 Secrets to Leading Others and Leaving Your Legacy

Book Authority #43 Best Leadership Book of All Time.
Forbes #1 New Leadership Book (2020).

Best-selling author, the #1 authority on Intelligent leadership and the World’s Top Executive Coach (and, Former Coach to Steve Jobs)

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 bestselling book, The Intelligent Leader.

Say NO to Change Management

WINNER of the Business Class News Editors’ Choice Award for BOOK OF THE YEAR

“Important and timely book” – Forbes

“As friend, colleague and assistant to Dr. Viktor Frankl for over twenty years, I can confidently share with you that Dean Lindsay gets it! His ability to integrate the inspirational theories of Dr. Viktor Frankl with contemporary business leadership needs is extraordinary. Dean’s application of Frankl’s concepts of ‘freedom of choice’ and ‘the defiant power of the human spirit’ to modern business is powerfully motivating. Progress Leadership goes beyond telling us to “just do it” and, in a very readable way, tells us how to do it – or, in Dean’s words, how to be progress. A must read for business success!” – Jay I. Levinson, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist and Former Special Assistant to Dr. Viktor Frankl

“Leaders can’t keep change from happening. The only thing we can do is transform how we think about it—and help our teams do the same. Progress Leadership from ‘America’s Progress Agent’ Dean Lindsay is a much needed kick in the pants for every leader. If you would rather be leading progress instead of managing change, read this book!” – Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The New One Minute Manager® and Servant Leadership in Action

“To Change is Human; to Progress Divine.” – Dean Lindsay

Changing the Way You Think About Growth

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Growth IQ comes a guide to enhancing customer and employee experience simultaneously for unprecedented revenue growth

In the war for customer acquisition, businesses invest millions of dollars to improve customer experience. They deliver packages faster, churn out new products, and endlessly revamp their UI, often putting greater strain on employees for diminishing returns. According to Tiffani Bova, this siloed focus on customer experience – without considering the impact on your staff – actually hinders growth in the long run. The most successful companies adopt an Experience Mindset that strengthens both employee experience (EX) and customer experience (CX) at the same time.
