Keith is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of Who’s Got Your Back, Never Eat Alone, and Leading Without Authority. His 20 year history of coaching c-suite executive teams has made him an agent of transformation and among the world’s greatest and most sought after coaches.
As founder and CEO of Ferrazzi Greenlight, Keith Ferrazzi has spent over a decade addressing the behaviors that block global organizations from reaching strategic goals and transforming them into new habits that increase shareholder value. More recently, in partnership with Zappos’ Tony Hsieh and Groupon’s Brad Keywell, Keith launched Yoi, a digital onboarding tool that drives transparency, improved coaching, and real-time feedback between busy managers and their new hires. The platform utilizes practice-based learning and quantitative assessments to deliver increased productivity in the workplace.
By helping global organizations recognize and transform behaviors that block strategic goals, Keith Ferrazzi helps create new, more profitable habits throughout every level of the businesses he works with. Through his research institute, Keith has cultivated a business approach that he calls leading without authority. It is the process of unleashing behavioral attitudes in the workforce that are in service to each other in order to effect radical, impactful and positive organizational change — in essence behavioral reengineering. With this fundamental shift in human behavior, co-elevation begins to happen. And that’s where the magic begins.
This passion to understand human behavior and find actions and practices to effect positive change led to the founding of the Greenlight Institute, a think tank dedicated to finding the keys to sustainable human behavior change. Keith is also the founder and chairman of Ferrazzi Greenlight and the author of the NY Times bestsellers Who’s Got Your Back and Never Eat Alone and is regularly published in The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Inc., and Fast Company.
Keith’s keynotes go beyond the ordinary by tapping into the hearts and minds of attendees and challenging them to open up to one another. By connecting everyone in the room, Keith Ferrazzi facilitates the risk-taking and candor that paves the way to insight and actionable, sustained organizational change.
