Publisher's Summary

The number one New York Times best-selling author of Never Eat Alone 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.

"An actionable methodology for any team to thrive during the decade of exponential change ahead." (Peter H. Diamandis, founder of XPRIZE and Singularity University, best-selling co-author of Abundance, Bold, and The Future Is Faster Than You Think)

In times of stress, we have a choice: we can retreat further into our isolated silos, or we can commit to "going higher together". When external pressures are mounting, and employees are working from far-flung locations across the globe, says best-selling author Keith Ferrazzi, we can no longer afford to waste time navigating the complex chains of command or bureaucratic bottlenecks present in most companies. But when we choose the bold new methodology of co-elevation as our operating model, we unlock the potential to boost productivity, deepen commitment and engagement, and create a level of trust, mutual accountability, and purpose that exceeds what could have been accomplished under the status quo. And you don't need any formal authority to do it. You simply have to marshal a commitment to a shared mission and care about the success and development of others as much as you care about your own. Regardless of your title, position, or where or how you work, the ability to lead without authority is an essential workplace competency.

Here, Ferrazzi draws on over a decade of research and over 30 years helping CEOs and senior leaders drive innovation and build high-performing teams to show how we can all turn our colleagues and partners into teammates and truly reboot the way we work together.

Critic Reviews

"Leading Without Authority is the must-read guidebook for radical transformation. Keith Ferrazzi's concept of co-elevation provides an actionable methodology for any team to thrive during the decade of exponential change ahead." (Peter H. Diamandis, founder of XPRIZE and Singularity University, bestselling co-author of Abundance, Bold, and The Future Is Faster Than You Think)

"Ferrazzi is breaking new ground in defining what leadership can mean in the emerging world of work. He shows that humility, curiosity, and candor can serve as the connective tissue binding us to our mission, to one another, and to a sense of purpose larger than ourselves." (Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global)

"I'm excited to bring 'co-elevation' (as a new word, as a new book, and as a concept) to Zappos to help bring our culture and our business to the next level." (Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos, New York Times best-selling author of Delivering Happiness)

Must read!

An incredibly impactful book, especially now. We need innovation to help get businesses back on track, especially during this pandemic. No matter the size of the business, co-elevation will impact how great ideas transform your business, because of relationship building.

A great tool added to the leader & human tool box

I walked away with many new tools. The blue flame, interrupt anxiety and stress with gratititude, find the small wins to build up to bigger ones, ask/listen more.

narration was good and actively involved.

Coelevation. Rinse. Repeat.

Be a good person. Take the initiative. Help your colleagues. That’s about all of the meaningful content this book contains. Just a little bit repetitive. Could have been a blog post.

From Collaboration to Coelevation!

This book is for anyone tired of toxic bureaucracy. Old business strategies that are often contributes to revenue loss due to work culture disengagement and overall business success. This fun and comprehensive guide is able to help you navigate and strengthen your art of collaboration. I loved that the opportunities were relatable and could be adapted in business and in anything that may be going on outside the workplace. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels ready to be an influencer or a leader from where they are... AS THEY ARE!

This book's message of powerful wisdom is the right message at the right time for those that will choose to become part of the solution rather than remain content with the problem.

Impactful

I am in a role where it is my job to lead without authority, this book has already motivated me to step out from behind the excuses I was making for myself and work harder to promote a co-elevated team throughout my Org. Thank you Keith and Noel for sharing this perspective.
