Leading Without Authority is Ferrazzi’s long awaited guide to being an extraordinary leader in the new world of work.
Ferrazzi redefines collaboration with a radical new workplace operating system in which leadership no longer demands an office, an official title, or even a physical workplace. In times of challenge, we have a choice: we can retreat further into our isolated silos, or we can commit to “going higher together.” Through his prescriptive approach, Ferrazzi offers real-world solutions for creating exponential change in the world. Once mastered, the lessons of Leading Without Authority and Co-Elevation go well beyond the scope of business and the workplace.
Dozens of CEOs have praised this book as the roadmap for the new world of work for today’s leaders and those who aspire to change the world we live in.
The Bestseller that swept the world. Millions of lives touched and transformed
With the publication of Never Eat Alone, Ferrazzi redefined traditional networking into a way of life where those who practice Ferrazzi-style relationship management find themselves generously working toward relationships based on authenticity and mutual success. This, now classic book, with timeless advice is why it’s still a go-to reference for anyone looking to create opportunity in the world.
As Ferrazzi discovered in early life, what distinguishes highly successful people from everyone else is the way they use the power of relationships—so that everyone wins. In Never Eat Alone, Ferrazzi lays out the specific steps—and inner mindset—he applies to connect with the thousands of colleagues, friends, and associates on his contacts list. In the time since Never Eat Alone was published in 2005, the rise of social media and new, collaborative management styles have only made Ferrazzi’s advice more essential for anyone aspiring to get ahead.
In Who’s Got Your Back, Keith further develops the importance of relationships to your success, including lifeline relationships that are trusted enough to have, as Keith says, “butt-kicking privileges” to keep you from failing. It’s time to disregard the myth of the lone professional “superman” and the rest of our culture’s go-it alone mentality. The real path to success in your work and in your life is through creating an inner circle of “lifeline relationships” – deep, close relationships with a few key trusted individuals who will offer the encouragement, feedback, and generous mutual support every one of us needs to reach our full potential. Whether your dream is to lead a company, be a top producer in your field, overcome the self-destructive habits that hold you back, lose weight or make a difference in the larger world, Who’s Got Your Back will give you the roadmap you’ve been looking for to achieve the success you deserve.
Keith's first book, "Never Eat Alone" focused on networking. I heard Keith speak in Atlanta, and he stated that even beyond being well-networked, each of us needs a personal Board of Directors in order to be successful. This group will help you succeed by giving you candid, honest and caring feedback as well as holding you accountable.READ on Amazon >
Masterfully written! If you're looking for guidance on leadership and how to drive a team forward, I highly recommend this book. This book really blows my mind! Working with a bunch of millennial, I found the concept of co-elevation discussed in this book very powerful. This modernizes how we think to lead a team and gain trust from/within the team. "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships."READ on Amazon >
As a 20 yr professional and manager I wasn't sure of how relevant this book would be. Frankly I found it to be excellent! I have ranked it as 5 stars, something I rarely do. Ferrazzi covers a range of topics which are as relevant for those veterans in the workforce as those starting out. One item I found especially refreshing was the approach to networking. A buzzword these days, I see Millenials and others "lunching" constantly and asking to join my LinkedIn or Facebook and then...READ on Amazon >
