The Mentally Strong Leader: Build the Habits to Productively Regulate Your Emotions, Thoughts, and Behaviors
by Scott Mautz
Manage yourself internally so you can lead better externally
Award-winning, bestselling author Scott Mautz defines mental strength as the ability to self-regulate emotions, thoughts, and behaviors to achieve exceptional outcomes, despite adversity. It’s the leadership superpower of our times. Mentally strong leaders are confident and in control of themselves and their environment; they have endurance, are disciplined, and external stressors make their decision-making sharper. They’re a safe port in a storm for their team.
The Mentally Strong Leader gives readers a mental exercise plan to become such a leader. Readers will walk away with a menu of over 50 proven tools they can choose from to build a tailored set of habits in six areas that will make them mentally stronger:
Inspired by Mautz’s hit LinkedIn Learning course, “10 Habits of Mentally Strong People,” his 25 years leading some of Procter & Gamble’s multi-billion-dollar businesses, and over 30 years of studying this topic, The Mentally Strong Leader relies on mental models, data and research, habit-building science, and practical tools and exercises to create enduring understandings for readers. Mautz begins with a compelling explanation of the power of mental strength, and offers a Mental Strength Self-Assessment. He finishes, as he has in his past titles, like Leading from the Middle, and Make it Matter, by providing a Mental Action Plan (MAP) to help readers create their own, tailored practice.
Leading from the Middle
by Scott Mautz
The definitive playbook for driving impact as a middle manager
Leading from the Middle: A Playbook for Managers to Influence Up, Down, and Across the Organization delivers an insightful and practical guide for the backbone of an organization: those who have a boss and are a boss and must lead from the messy middle. Accomplished author and former P&G executive Scott Mautz walks readers through the unique challenges facing these managers, and the mindset and skillset necessary for managing up and down and influencing what happens across the organization.
You'll learn the winning mindset of the best middle managers, how to develop the most important skills necessary for managing from the middle, how to create your personal Middle Action Plan (MAP), and effectively influence:
- Up the chain of command, to your boss and those above them
- Down, to your direct reports and teams who report to you
- Laterally, to peers and teams you have no formal authority over
Anyone in an organization who reports to someone and has someone reporting to them must lead from the middle. They are the most important group in an organization and have a unique opportunity to drive impact. Leading from the Middle explains how.

Leading Brilliantly as a Middle Manager
No group has a bigger impact on transforming an organization than those who must lead from the middle of that organization. The skillset and mindset required to lead in all directions - up to the boss, down to employees, and across to peers - is like no other challenge in leadership. The keynote draws from research with thousands of successful middle managers to teach the unique challenges to overcome, as well as the skillset and mindset required to succeed.
*Alternate title: Increase Your Influence – If you don’t want the focus to be on the middle managers in your organization per se, we can make the focus all about how any employee can increase their influence in the organization, up to the boss, down to employees, and across to peers.
The Secret to High-Performing Organizations
This keynote reveals that the secret to the highest-performing organizations is a workforce deeply motivated by leaders adept at fostering meaning both in and at work. Research is shared that shows meaning is the motivator of our times, then the audience is introduced to “The Markers of Meaning”– specific conditions the leader can foster that create meaning in and at work: working with a sense of purpose and autonomy, fueling learning and personal growth, creating a sense of competency and self-esteem, working with a sense of autonomy and influence, and working in a caring environment.
How to Leave a Legacy at Work
and in Life
Is your organization in a pivotal moment where it faces big goals and needs everyone fired up to deliver? This keynote inspires the audience to understand that they are indeed in a pivotal moment (if they choose to see it that way) and to think of the legacy they want to leave behind at work, and in life. They then learn about The Footprints of Legacy – the manners in which we humans tend to leave a lasting impact behind (whether or not we realize it): via enduring results, the transfer of knowledge, passing on values, relationships and lives touched, and through stories told about you. The audience then goes through a “double-click” on how, step-by-step, to leave a legacy of enduring results at work and how to create their own legacy statement.
Flourishing In Change
Change can galvanize or paralyze a company and its employees. This keynote teaches that the key to thriving (not just surviving) in change is to embrace the fundamental Change Choice (will you see change as happening to you or for you), to adopt the Change Curve (how human beings process change), and to learn how to overcome the Core Challenges of Change (including discomfort with the unknown and fear of failure, will to persevere falters, and getting stuck in old, unhelpful narratives). The audience walks away with a complete plan for successfully navigating change.
