Who's Got Your Back: The Breakthrough Program to Build Deep, Trusting Relationships That Create success--and Won't Let You Failby Keith Ferrazzi
Synopses & Reviews
Disregard the myth of the lone professional “superman” and the rest of our culture’s go-it alone mentality. The real path to success in your work and in your life is through creating an inner circle of “lifeline relationships” – deep, close relationships with a few key trusted individuals who will offer the encouragement, feedback, and generous mutual support every one of us needs to reach our full potential. Whether your dream is to lead a company, be a top producer in your field, overcome the self-destructive habits that hold you back, lose weight or make a difference in the larger world, Who’s Got Your Back will give you the roadmap you’ve been looking for to achieve the success you deserve.
Keith Ferrazzi, the internationally renowned thought leader, consultant, and bestselling author of Never Eat Alone, shows us that becoming a winner in any field of endeavor requires a trusted team of advisors who can offer guidance and help to hold us accountable to achieving our goals. It is the reason PH.D candidates have advisor teams, top executives have boards, world class athletes have fitness coaches, and presidents have cabinets.
In this step-by-step guide to the powerful principles behind personal growth and change, you’ll learn how to:
Master the mindsets that will help you to build deeper, more trusting “lifeline relationships”
Overcome the career-crippling habits that hold you back, once and for all
Get further, faster by setting goals in a dramatically more powerful way
Use “sparring” as a productive tool to make the decisions that will fuel personal success
Replace the yes men in your life with those who get it and care – and will hold you accountable to achieving your goals
Lower your guard and let others help!
None of us can do it alone. We need the perspective and advice of a trusted team. And in Who’s Got Your Back, Keith Ferrazzi shows us how to put our own “dream team” together.
The author of the bestselling Never Eat Alone offers the real secret to our career and personal success: the importance of developing a circle of trusted friends and advisors to help us achieve our fullest potential—the kind of support that is behind virtually every successful president, executive, and leader.
In Never Eat Alone, Keith Ferrazzi explained how to create an extensive community of contacts. Now, in WHO’S GOT YOUR BACK, Ferrazzi focuses on the necessity of forming even deeper bonds with a few key people who can act as counselors, ombudsmen and advisors in our careers, providing us with candid feedback and support to help guide us in our day-to-day actions and long-term goals.
As Ferrazzi says, “When we really need to push ourselves to reach our full potential, to be great, it’s not enough to have a database filled with business connections. Once I lined up an ironclad team of deeply trusted advisors, success came quickly. I tripled my earnings at my company. Every day I wake up knowing that caring, trustworthy people are watching out for me. Don’t wait for these guardian angels to magically appear in your life. It’s up to each of us to create these relationships. And this book will show you how.”
