Creating deep community bonds among employees, what Keith 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.

Who's Got Your Back
provides an interactive, transformative experience for sustainable change in your organization. Through a series of exercises to shift mindsets from isolation to connection, Ferrazzi 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 roadmap for building and creating a core group of lifeline relationships, including:
  • 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 workplans,
  • Tools to identify and overcome career-crippling bad habits,
  • Keys to sustaining a commitment to excellence and growth over time

Keith Ferrazzi, HBS 1992, is the world's foremost expert in professional relationship development. Both Forbes and Inc. have called him one of the world's most "connected" individuals. His first book, Never Eat Alone, redefined networking today. Ferrazzi has been named a "Global Leader of Tomorrow" by the World Economic Forum, one of the top "40 Under 40" business leaders by Crain's Business, and one of the most creative Americans in Who's Really Who.
