How the New Power of Co-Elevation Can Break Down Silos, Transform Teams, and Reinvent Collaboration

Good Managers Elevate All Employees

by David Meyer

Be a leader – even if that’s not in your job title. Keith Ferrazzi explains his new concept – “co-elevation” – and how managers can use it to inspire collaboration.

The New York Times best-selling author of Who’s Got Your Back and Never Eat Alone, Keith Ferrazzi is founder and CEO of Ferrazzi Greenlight. His thesis is that, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a title or a lofty position to be a leader at work. All you need, he insists, is the desire to build fruitful relationships and create an open, honest and productive culture. Ferrazzi lays out a blueprint for transforming your relationships and your business. He reveals how to use “co-elevation” to enlist your colleagues in a shared mission of individual and collective growth. Along the way, Ferrazzi explains, you’ll learn humility, gratitude and generosity.

A broad range of businesspeople and authors have praised Ferrazzi’s ideas. For example, Peter Guber, co-owner of the Golden States Warriors and the Los Angeles Dodgers, called this, “A brilliant, unique approach to building relationship capital by creating trusting and lasting human connection, not merely digital contact – inside and outside your company.” Dave Asprey, author of The Bulletproof Diet, found this to be, “A masterful guide to thriving in today’s very weird workplace.”
