Who's Got Your Back
Give your associates a strong sense of security and purpose in unstable times with Keith Ferrazzi’s Who’s Got Your Back keynote. His message: Everything we need to succeed is in our grasp. It’s the people around us. Not just family and friends – the people we work with.
In a time of cutbacks and layoffs, your organization needs this message more than ever to bond together, build resolve, and emerge from the crisis even stronger. Creating deep community bonds among employees, what Ferrazzi calls “lifeline relationships” is an incredibly effective instrument for continuing change and growth in the workplace – the kind that translates to bottom-line impact.
Ferrazzi presents a vital lesson for leaders: by increasing engagement among their teams, they’ll enhance
productivity, innovation, and growth. Research tells us that strong socials bonds drive high-performance
teams, and that employee engagement – highly correlated with the depth of workplace relationships in
Gallup studies – has direct impact on both revenue and profitability.
The problem is, individuals often lack the skills, and the permission, to tap their work-based support
structure. While serving corporate leadership teams, sales forces, and other organizations, Ferrazzi developed the mind-sets and the methodology to do exactly that.
This is more than a feel-good message. Ferrazzi’s keynote provides an interactive, transformative experience for sustainable change in your organization. In the first part of the 60-minute talk, he and a senior leader from your company introduce the talk together. Then Keith leads participants through a series of exercises to shift their mindsets from isolation to connection.
This creates the foundation for two powerful tools for workplace excellence: candor and accountability, the keys to identifying problems, developing creative solutions, and then sticking to plans for follow through.
Ferrazzi then introduces the Who’s Got Your Back road map for building and creating a core group of lifeline
- a process to identify and strengthen bonds with lifeline candidates – those who have the potential to
“get it and care”
- a team-based format for refining goals and work plans
- tools to identify and overcome career-crippling bad habits
- keys to sustaining a commitment to excellence and growth over time
This keynote resonates throughout an organization for months to come – particularly when supported by
the book as a resource. Your employees will have the tools and the motivation they need to enact the
program for lasting impact on the vitality of your organization.
