Proven and Proprietary Tools and Assessments
ILEC is grounded in Mattone’s proven method, which includes the key differentiator of being able to measure return on investment for its clients. Many organizations have difficulty measuring leadership development because it’s largely subjective. Results are generally intangible. 

Mattone developed a proprietary tool called the Leader Watch Report, which actually measures results and shows the ROI in coaching by way of leadership improvements, operating success and other metrics. Providing data-driven results through its proprietary assessments, ILEC provides tremendous value not only to its clients but to its coaches as well. This allows ILEC to guarantee that their coaches will get results 100% of the time.

A Virtual Business Model That Maximizes Global Impact
ILEC coaches can coach from anywhere in the world. There are no territories. It’s designed this way because being former executives themselves, many ILEC coaches have large circles of influence that span the globe. Not being confined to a brick-and-mortar office, or even a geographic territory, allows them to work within that network and expand it, maximizing both their profitability and the impact they can make on leaders globally.

A High-Net-Profit (and Fulfilling Lifestyle) Business 
Because of the virtual model and low operating expenses, being an ILEC coach is a high-net-profit business. But it’s also a unique lifestyle opportunity. ILEC coaches are tasked with helping solve the issues that face organizations and individual leaders every day, and they do it without having to be in a corporate environment themselves — which, for many executives who have just left a corporate environment, is a welcome lifestyle upgrade. 

For ILEC coaches, the ability to run their own businesses, share their knowledge and experiences, earn a great living and inspire people in the process is an opportunity that checks all the necessary boxes.

The Need for Executive Leadership Coaching Is Higher Than Ever
In a post-pandemic world and amid the Great Resignation, more and more organizations are seeing huge gaps in their leadership succession plans. And with many experienced executives either having been let go in favor of younger, cheaper talent or having gone into early retirement due to an uncertain economic climate, more millennials are being thrust into leadership positions before they’re ready. 

In this post-pandemic world, leader retention is more important than it’s ever been. Companies are feeling the pressure to reduce turnover, and they’re turning to executive leadership coaching to educate and build up their young leaders.

A Turnkey Business with Generous Franchisee Support
ILEC is a great business for a first-time business owner — which the bulk of ILEC’s coaches are — due to its simplicity and robust franchisee support system. ILEC franchisees don’t have to start a business from scratch. The brand provides all marketing collateral, marketing strategy, branding and national public-relations opportunities, on top of thorough training and education in the proven and proprietary Intelligent Leadership® philosophy.

  • ILEC also provides an onboarding process in which they help franchisees create a business development plan and assist with initial outreach to build a network of prospects.
  • There’s a five-day certification training before the franchisee enters the first 90 days of launching their business, during which they work weekly with a franchise business coach to keep them on track. After the first 90 days, the brand will do a full audit of the franchisee’s business to find out where they need help and course-correct, if necessary.
  • ILEC even does the client invoicing for its coaches because it doesn't want them to get caught up in all the administrative minutiae. Contracts, invoicing — it’s all automated through the brand’s CRM because ILEC wants its coaches to focus on the fun part of running their business: coaching.

Ideal Candidate:

Experienced leaders, executives, managers, coaches, trainers and go-to problem solvers who have 10-plus years of professional experience and enjoy helping others reach their potential are strong ILEC franchisee candidates. Are you looking for the next chapter in your professional life and have the desire to support others by removing the inner barriers that are holding them back from realizing their potential?
