Transforming Culture: The Road to Accelerating Reinvention & Renewal

Based on John’s New Blockbuster Book, Cultural Transformations (Wiley & Sons, 2016)

In John’s newest power-packed presentation he reveals the critical steps that must be planned-out and executed in order for any organization to create and sustain a renewed, winning culture that engages, inspires and unleashes talent in support of driving breakthrough results.

Culture is the foundation from which successful organizations are built—however, most struggle to create an environment in which employees can be fulfilled, effective in their work, and feel “unleashed”. What exactly is it that makes some organizations achieve and sustain breakthrough success, while others struggle with cultural transformation…whether it involves crafting a new compelling vision and culture or merging cultures? Based on years of research and advising Fortune 1000 CEO’s and senior leadership teams, John Mattone argues that the highest performing organizations both embrace and execute 6 critical steps to achieving positive transformation, but transforming culture always begins with a CEO who is both willing and able to “think big” and be bold while maintaining a heavy dose of “humility”. In this dynamic presentation, John Mattone details the essence of what is meant by the “vulnerability decision” as well as the other critical steps that must be executed in order for your organization to effectively accelerate its’ own reinvention.

Success Mapping: Creating Your Powerful, Compelling Future

John Mattone is the man Fortune 500 companies turn to for game-changing insights on how to help their leaders and employees overcome their self-imposed limiting thoughts, beliefs and habits, and discover powerful and unique ways to unlock and unleash their potential. John Mattone helps people achieve an “inner-core” balance by strengthening their self-image, character and values, thinking patterns, beliefs, emotions, and actions, so they realize greater success…stronger relationships, stronger partnerships, and new levels of achievement.

This interactive program will prepare and cultivate your heart, mind and soul so you are poised to “touch” the hearts, minds and souls of those with whom you work and live. In the role of grandparent, parent, spouse, son or daughter, and as a working professional-regardless of title or occupation, there is truly no more a noble, worthy or rewarding life pursuit than discovering the keys to achieving a stronger “mental state” as a foundation to unlocking and unleashing your own massive potential, as well as the potential of those with whom you work and live. John Mattone will teach you that success is not tied to having abundance; his philosophy is that it is the “disciplined pursuit of less, in the end, will give you more”.

Your Success Roadmap: How to Create Your Powerful, Compelling Future is a research and empirically-based program that uses my Wheel of Professional Success™ and Map of Maturity™ as the foundation for explaining the predictive relationships that exist between an individual’s “inner-core” strength, “outer-core” competencies, achieving “mental balance”, and how your heightened “brilliance” can drive a stronger, more vibrant and effective person. Beyond explanation, however, this program will challenge you to reflect on, connect with, and accept both the “gifts” and development opportunities you possess. From there, I will guide you in specific ways on how to strengthen your “inner-core” character, values, beliefs, thoughts and emotions as well as your “outer-core” competencies so you breakthrough your self-imposed limitations and can achieve all that you are capable of achieving as a person and professional, while maintain “balance” and health.

World-Class HR Leadership: It’s About Talent, Leadership & Being a Great HR Partner

The conversation about HR having a “seat at the table” is over. The door is wide open and the Human Resources function has its seat; increasingly one being populated by HR Business Partners that are aligned with business units rather than, or in addition to a centralized HR function.

But for many organizations that have filled these roles with HR generalists, long on skills in the HR function but short on experience in other areas of the business, these partnerships are proving frustrating for both sides. Now, more than ever, HR professionals need a whole new set of competencies, some related to talent and some related to business to deliver the results their organizations are looking for.
