Becoming Mentally Stronger

Mental strength has become THE leadership superpower of our times; i.e. the ability to self-regulate your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors to achieve exceptional outcomes, despite circumstances. In this compelling keynote, the audience is introduced to this researched-backed insight, and the fact that mental strength is comprised of six “mental muscles,” six areas/tests of leadership that most directly correlate with exceptional achievement. These same areas require self-regulation skills to navigate them effectively:

• Fortitude 
• Decision-making
• Confidence 
• Goal-focus
• Boldness 
• Messaging (sending the right messages of positivity/intent

The audience comes to understand it’s about managing internally, so you can lead better externally (professionally and personally), and are emotionally and intellectually engaged in how to do so. Multiple tools are introduced throughout the keynote to inspire and equip the audience to become mentally stronger.

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.

The Feel of World-Class Teams

Looking to build a tight-knit, high-achieving, world-class team? It comes down to how membership on that team makes you feel (i.e. the team norms and the psychological and behavioral vibe present). In this keynote, the audience learns how they can foster their own super-team by understanding and acting on the 5 most common and powerful sentiments that research shows tight-knit, top-achieving teams feel:

• The ability to make an impact (including clarity of expectations/open communication)
• Comfort with uncertainty/risk-taking (including change)
• No fear of failure (self-confidence flourishes)
• A caring culture
• The will to persevere

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.

The Mentally Strong Leader: Build the Habits to Productively Regulate Your Emotions, Thoughts, and Behaviorsby Scott Mautz

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: 

  • Fortitude
  • Decision-making
  • Confidence
  • Goal-focus
  • Boldness             
  • Messaging

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 Middleby Scott Mautz

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.
