The 16 Laws of Intelligent Leadership – John Mattone on Talent Leadership in Dubai Nov 20

Intelligent Leadership






According to internationally renowned leadership expert, John Mattone, one key thing that he has learned in life (as well as through coaching CEO’s, senior executives and high-potential executives) is that if we are going to become the best we can be, we must surround ourselves with great people! Our sphere of connections should include mentors and stakeholders who represent and reflect the levels to which we aspire; include new relationships that will offer us new dreams, new insights, new lessons, and a revitalized passion for what is possible in our personal and professional lives!

This brings me to John’s 1st Law of Intelligent Leadership: “Align yourself with people of extraordinary character and competence.” John Mattone is happy to share his 16 laws with here before his workshop on 20th November  organised by Innoverto. is a proud media partner and hope that reading the laws inspires you not only to practice them , but to go and listen to John share his expertise.

Here they are:

The 16 Laws of Intelligent Leadership

1.    “Only align yourself with people of character and competence.”
2.    “It is the disciplined pursuit of less that will give you more.”
3.    “Have the guts to look inside and admit that while you may be good, you are not the best you can be.”
4.    “Go forward everyday committed to worthy achievement, being altruistic, and building rewarding
relationships with the people in your life.”
5.    “The key to unlocking your massive potential is making the decision to be vulnerable.”
6.    “You have the choice to either accept or reject feedback; however, if you reject feedback you also reject the
choice of acting in a way that may very well bring you abundant success and happiness.”
7.    “Great leaders commit to becoming more capable, committed, and connected today than they were
8.    “Success has nothing to do with money, titles and possessions; success is only about committing—everyday-
– to becoming the absolute best you can be.”
9.    “The greatest irony of success is that it is often the 1st step to failure.”
10.    “Great leaders engage in quiet, daily reflection asking themselves what they did today that brought
extraordinary value to their people, teams and family and then making the commitment to bring even
more value tomorrow.”
11.    “If you want others to be happy be courteous, compassionate and altruistic; if you want to be happy, be
courteous, compassionate and altruistic.”
12.    “Your presence is determined by your reputation; your reputation can spiral “up” or “down” based on
your “wow” factor—do you fall short or just meet people’s expectations or do you “wow” people”?
13.    “Nobody sees your inner-core except you, if you choose to see it; but, if you choose to see it, that’s key to
unlocking your true greatness.”
14.    “The health and vibrancy of your inner-core predicts the health and vibrancy of your outer-core, which is
what the world sees”.
15. “Yourcharacterwon’tdetermineyourdestiny;itwilldetermineyourultimatedestiny.”
16.    “The best predictor of your future is not past performance; it is the combination of your past, your
willingness to accept your gifts and deficiencies, your willingness to commit to a plan in which you leverage
your gifts and address your deficiencies, your willingness to execute your plan, your willingness to be
vigilant to the results you achieve, and most importantly your willingness to “course correct”,
