Leading Without Authority


Leading Without Authority

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 world of work is changing at an unprecedented rate leaving many organisations struggling to cope. At a time when constant innovation, agility, and speed often mean the difference between success and failure, we can no longer afford to waste time navigating the complex bureaucracy present in most companies.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author Keith Ferrazzi argues that in times like these the ability to lead without authority is the essential workplace competency. Leading Without Authority reveals the secret to getting those around you to collaborate and cooperate to reach their full potential, whatever your title. The answer involves a shift in mindset that Ferrazzi calls co-elevation – working to elevate those around us. And you don’t have to have formal authority, or direct reports, to utilize the co-elevation process. In fact, you can take initial steps forward without the other person even being aware of your efforts.

Drawing on a decade of research and over thirty years helping CEOs and senior leaders drive innovation and build high-performing teams Ferrazzi reveals how we can all transform our business and our relationships with the people around us. The result is a new roadmap for thriving amid the disruptive pressures afflicting every industry.
