John Mattone Launches Intelligent Leadership® Online Academy


Intelligent Leadership® Online Academy

We are excited to launch a world-class leadership development product that is the future—blending state of the art technology, our intellectual property, and solid adult learning theory—to leaders and future leaders all over the world.

John Mattone, the world’s top executive coach, and Co- Founder and CEO of John Mattone-Global (JMG), Inc., and the Intelligent Leadership Executive Coaching Franchise (ILEC), has launched a new JMG business, Intelligent Leadership Online Academy (ILOA), LLC. ILOA is a revolutionary web-based platform and online action and accountability-based leadership program based on John’s global bestseller and top 50 leadership books of all time, The Intelligent Leader: Unlocking the 7 Secrets to Leading Others and Leaving Your Legacy. Working with John as your personal coach for 20-weeks–investing just 20-30 minutes/week, leaders and future leaders will learn the critical “new normal” leadership skills required in today’s complex business world, such as: empowering yourself and others, managing teams remotely, managing and leading change in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Chaotic, Ambiguous) world, and solving problems with a multiplier effect. ILOA creatively and masterfully equips leaders and emerging leaders with both the winning “mindset” and inner-core strength needed to spark, fuel, and grow their “new-normal” leadership capabilities. ILOA delivers what is demanded of leaders today—Intelligent Leadership® Intelligently Delivered.

ILOA’s premise is that disruption and opportunity are two sides of the same coin. The organizations and leaders who accurately read and navigate this new reality will be ones who not only survive – but thrive – in the days, months, and years ahead. No longer are the traditional leadership programs the answer. It’s not about pushing stale e-learning modules out to learners so they can “check a box”. It’s also not about having them consume volumes of free online content either. It’s about: (1) consuming powerful, transformative “bite-sized” content—quickly and efficiently; (2) taking action and putting newly learned capabilities into practice immediately; (3) reflecting on actions taken and accountability with the help of a personal online executive coach; and (4) measuring results to track individual and team progress.

According to John Mattone, “Organizations spend close to 10 billion a year on leadership development with questionable ROI. In general, most programs are not falling short because of inadequate or irrelevant content. Frequently, the fault lies in the inefficient delivery of value-add content, not practicing what is learned, and inadequate follow-up coaching and accountabilities. ILOA addresses these challenges and more. We are excited to launch a world-class leadership development product that is the future—blending state of the art technology, our intellectual property, and solid adult learning theory—to leaders and future leaders all over the world. When you add that ILOA is incredibly cost-effective, we believe we have created a leadership development program that is uniquely poised to help organizations scale and amplify the development of their leaders and emerging leaders. Our objective is to deploy and test market ILOA in the next year before we enable our ILEC franchisees to position and sell this program to their prospects and clients.

This Black Ad Exec Wants to Create 1 Million New Black Millionaires

Brian Lee

Advertising Exec Brian Lee

There has been a lot of talk from corporate America about standing with the black community, but now it is time for action. Black professionals would like to see investment directly into black talent and black suppliers.

Black professionals make up 10% of college graduates, but less than 1 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs and only 3 percent of executive/senior manager-level roles according to a study by the Center for Talent Innovation. The result of these struggles has led to thirty-eight percent of black millennials saying they are considering leaving their jobs to start their own company and Brian Lee is creating a platform to empower black professionals to become millionaires through education and professional development.

A key part of Brian’s plan includes partnering with corporate America to make good on their diversity statements. Lee says, “There has been a lot of talk from corporate America about standing with the black community, but now it is time for action. Black professionals would like to see investment directly into black talent and black suppliers. They also want professional development and to see diverse people in company board seats and in the C-Suite.”

Realizing that many companies do not know where to find black talent Brian launched Black Health and Wealth to provide access to a network of black talent and world class suppliers so that every single Fortune 500 company can take action.

Brian Lee is a seasoned executive that has worked behind the scenes on advertising campaigns from brands like Verizon, Microsoft, and many more. His own struggles moving up the corporate ladder inspired him to create the Black Health and Wealth platform that helps guide Black professionals through corporate America and entrepreneurship. His goal is to create one million Black millionaires that will lead to new Black Wall Streets all over the world.

In an effort to create one million black millionaires over the next 10 years, Brian has outlined a multi-phased approach to circulating the black dollar. Brian believes that building the Black Wall Streets of modern times needs to be a digital first approach and his plan starts with building a platform that fortifies the black professional in corporate America, ladders up to black business/entrepreneurship and then finally the black community.

Under phase one, Lee will provide education and professional development to professionals within the network, helping them navigate through corporate America in addition to resources for entrepreneurs. In phase two, the company will introduce a black business network to centralize all Black businesses to an easy-to-access network in addition to working with major corporations to diversify their supplier strategy.

About Brian Lee

Over the course of his career Brian has worked on advertising campaigns for the largest brands in the world (Microsoft, Verizon, Citi and many more) and is the thought leader that advertising companies like Google go to in order to improve their products. He is also a contributor to Forbes, AdExchanger and more. Despite his success, Brian comes from humble beginnings and like many black professionals struggled to climb the corporate ladder for many years despite delivering quantifiable success to his organizations consistently. The once homeless phenom never forgets where he came from and always looks to reach back to others coming up behind him.

In addition to large brands, Brian has devoted a large amount of his time empowering small black businesses to improve their business offering and increase their revenue. This includes everything from creating e-commerce strategies for brands appearing on Shark Tank to accelerating sales for local businesses through digital advertising. His passion has always been showing black businesses how to market like the Fortune 500 and he has created a plan to create Black Wall Streets all over the world.

About Black Health and Wealth

Black Health and Wealth’s mission is to empower, educate, amplify and invest in black people, black businesses and black communities. We are also a purpose-driven company that aims to set the standards of excellence for the black community and provide a platform to all things black.

Through our Professional Network, Business Network and Education platform. We are creating a centralized platform that accelerates growth for black professionals and also builds the next generation of black businesses that are built for longevity.

Led by advertising exec Brian Lee, Black Health and Wealth was created to be THE platform that amplifies black wealth and economic opportunity.

Summer 2020: The Landlord’s Survival Strategy

News Image

This is a tremendously stressful and challenging time for everyone.With unemployment continuing to rise, tenants are likely anxious about making their rent, while landlords worry about mortgages and real estate taxes.With that in mind, keep good, open communication top of mind.

COVID-19 is here to stay, at least for a while. To that end, landlords should develop the best game plan, both for their tenants and themselves. Jeff Ihelnfield, founder of REIProperties Columbus since 2005, suggests including the following tips for landlords developing an ongoing “Coping with COVID-19” strategy.

Typically, landlords prequalify rental applicants. This avoids wasted time. Prequalifying individuals is even more important now as we are being asked to keep our social interactions at a minimal. With COVID-19, the best way to verify a prospective tenant’s identity is not a face to face meeting, but electronically, via Zoom, Skype or FaceTime. A scanned ID should suffice now too. If a face to face meeting is needed, make sure you practice safe social distancing, do it outside, make it brief and wear masks!

Under the present circumstances, this is the time to be as accommodating as you can. However, it is not time to throw your new tenant procedures aside. Stick as best you can to your tenant screening policies. Verify identity and run credit checks. These safeguards can be implemented regardless of the pandemic.

Stay at home orders and/or quarantines may certainly impact showings if/when you have a unit turning over. If you can, try to wait until a unit is empty and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before showing it. This protects both you and the prospective tenant. Another option, is to show a unit digitally, using a slideshow, video or even a virtual tour.

  •     Cleanliness and Sanitation

Following health department guidelines and CDC standards is critical right now. The good news is that household disinfectants and soap and water can combat the virus if it lingers on a surface. In addition, a number of professional cleaning companies have stepped up to provide sanitation services too. But before you hire one, be sure to do your homework. Make sure they are reputable, that you know what you are getting and check to ensure the company has a good track record.

If you own and/or manage a multifamily unit dwelling, you may need to put restrictions in place when it comes to the building’s common areas. If this is the case, make sure these restrictions are clear and understood by your tenants. Encourage everyone to comply. Afterall, it is in everyone’s best interest!

  •     Practice Patience

This is a tremendously stressful and challenging time for everyone. The pandemic continues to test us in ways we never could have imagined. And with unemployment continuing to rise, tenants are likely anxious about making their rent, while landlords worry about mortgages and real estate taxes. The struggle is real! With that in mind, keep good, open communication top of mind. Compassion and understanding go even further in a crisis. Remember, we truly are #AllInThisTogether

In this role, McMahon oversaw all customer implementations, care and technical support and customer success.

Previously, McMahon spent seven years at CenturyLink where he held a number of senior-leadership roles in sales, field operations and capital investment, among others. Prior to that, he was Director of Sales Support at EMBARQ, which was acquired by CenturyLink in 2009. Earlier, he held several roles managing customer care, support services and business transformation for Sprint.

“During my career I’ve led organizations in sales, operations, care and technical support, service delivery, customer success, marketing and more,” said McMahon. “Along the way, I’ve been involved in eight mergers and acquisitions, which means integrating and transforming organizations. I believe that the combination of business management experience, transformation experience, desire to drive value for customers and my competitive fire will benefit TPx.”
