“Keith is very much attuned to strategic thinking for the new world and making that connection between the thinking strategy, the big strategy and personal behavior.”
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) April 13, 2018
Renowned leadership coach and thought leader, Marshall Goldsmith, has named Keith Ferrazzi as one of the top 100 executive coaches, from a field of over 16,000, and one of the top 10 coaches in the field of strategy and culture. Other recipients include Dr. Jim Kim, President of the World Bank, Hubert Joly, Chairman and CEO of Best Buy, and Former CEO of the Girl Scouts and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Frances Hesselbein.
Goldsmith created 100 Coaches list as part of his “pay-it-forward” project to bring together an influential and diverse group of coaches with which to work and share his knowledge in the spirit of generosity. His only request was that, per Goldsmith, “When they get old they need to do the same thing I did.” Goldsmith wanted to include not just macro-thinkers, but coaches who can also bring those ideas down to the individual level, creating a list he calls the Top Strategy and Culture Advisors. In choosing Keith as one of his 100 Coaches, Goldsmith said, “Keith is very much attuned to strategic thinking for the new world and making that connection between the thinking strategy, the big strategy and personal behavior.”
Being a part of such an esteemed group and project is not just professionally rewarding but personal to Keith as well. As he was coming up as a steelworker’s son from Latrobe, PA, he was lucky enough to have many generous mentors along the way who opened new opportunities for him. As such, he has a deep appreciation for always leading with generosity—to give with no expectation of receiving and to share his own knowledge and expertise with as broad a coalition as possible.
