Keith Ferrazzi holds the secret to creating positive organizational change. By helping global organizations identify and transform behaviours that block them from achieving their goals, Ferrazzi helps create new, more profitable habits throughout every level of the businesses he works with. His direct and dynamic approach challenges audiences to cut down silos, and facilitates the risk-taking needed to ignite the innovation and agility needed for sustained organizational change in today’s radically interdependent world.
Formerly the CMO of Deloitte and Starwood Hotels, Ferrazzi is currently the founder and chairman of Ferrazzi Greenlight and its Research Institute, where he is recognized as a global thought leader in the relational and collaborative sciences. He has introduced a new transformational operating system he calls co-elevation that leads to exponential change and value. With the ongoing concerns around the pandemic, Ferrazzi has been coaching executive teams of the world’s largest organizations on how to lead virtually.
Ferrazzi is also a #1 New York Times bestselling author of Who’s Got Your Back, Never Eat Alone, and, most recently, Leading without Authority: How the New Power of Co-Elevation Can Break Down Silos, Transform Teams, and Reinvent Collaboration. Ferrazzi also regularly contributes to The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Inc., Forbes, Fortune, and Fast Company.
Together with former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh and Groupon’s Brad Keywell, Ferrazzi 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.
