I'm always a bit wary of business-focused self-help books, but I've been trying to be of more help to my team and thought this would provide some guidance. It's way better than I was expecting, and so far feels a lot more like a helpful guide on how to build communities and teams within your organization than being a manager-type-leader. I'd highly recommend to anyone who wants to perform better at work, whether or not you think management is something you're after.
I was enjoying this book quite a lot, had some great actionable things to try out. I really enjoy real world examples and find them useful along with being easier to test out. However, the rest of the Rule 7 chapter is missing!?! It ends abruptly on pg 182, in the middle of sentence and story. I just checked the table of contents, turns out, there's even an 8th chapter missing, the notes and the acknowledgements.
Bummed & annoyed that I don't have the end of the book.
If you're a fan of Keith Ferrazzi's other wonderful books, "Never Eat Alone" and "Who's Got Your Back?" "Leading Without Authority" is his masterpiece. Have you ever noticed that whether you're an entrepreneur of a Fortune 500 CEO, that the bottleneck to your company's success is NOT in the vision, mission or strategy. It is in the execution. Why? Because execution requires executing that strategy through people and people are often more complicated than your strategy or AI. One of the greatest problems is how to get your people to "buy in" and commit fully to your strategy. In traditional top down leadership and management, the motivation to follow through by your people when the "pump you up" leader/pump leaves. When the pump's away the people will stray. And this is especially true with remote workforces. In Leading Without Authority you help your people recognize that the power to get anything done doesn't come from above them and outside them via you. It comes from within and between them. All it takes is for a leader to realize this and for them to use this amazing guide to helping their people "co-elevate" each other to achieve any objective and much beyond. Thank you Keith!
Learn how to co-elevate with those around you! Great, easy read. Awesome content that is applicable to the business world, family life, and every personal relationship. Halfway through I felt compelled to send a message to the author on social media, detailing how excited I was after reading a chapter that really hit home with a situation in the workplace. If you find yourself (or those around you) making excuses for mediocrity, this is a must read!
"Leading without Authority" shows the path forward for companies to be successful by encouraging people regardless of job title to form collaborative teams to accomplish a mission. The author does a great job of providing some history behind the concept and why it's important to implement in our present day work culture. The book goes deep into how to develop working relationships, providing feedback, and most importantly, what is meant by Co-elevation - "turning a fellow associate into a team mate". The book does a great job of providing a path for management to apply as an organizational model.
Masterfully written! If you're looking for guidance on leadership and how to drive a team forward, I highly recommend this book. This book really blows my mind!
Working with a bunch of millennial, I found the concept of co-elevation discussed in this book very powerful. This modernizes how we think to lead a team and gain trust from/within the team. "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships."
It's my first Ferrazzi book and I finished it in a day! Really curious about his other books now!
Wow! This book is truly a gift - I have read all of Keith Ferrazzi's books and I am always blown away by the wisdom and insight he has.
Whether you are trying to grow a team, stand out in the workplace or gain inside knowledge on how the best companies are thriving - this book is for you. It has helped me so much in my professional and personal life, I can't express my gratitude enough. This book is a must read for whats happening in our environment!
I break this book down into 2 sections: 1) How to excel and make a difference in organizations with poor leadership. 2) How to instill a set of rules or culture so that your type A leadership can get along. The book is just ok.
