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.
