Netflix invented the “Keeper Test,” a simple tool to measure an employee’s value to a high-performance company culture. This is the test: If an employee were to let you know they were planning to take another role, would you fight hard to keep them?
Now, take a moment and put your attention on the 3-5 people over the course of your career who are not just Keepers, they’re “Super Keepers.”
You are likely thinking of people who have made your company far more successful merely by virtue of their presence, whether they were C-level allies, middle managers, or individual contributors. You gave them challenges, and they exceeded expectations. You promoted them, and they rewarded you with accelerated leadership.
Still, we know that sometimes Super Keepers in the middle or IC ranks can be overlooked for personal and professional growth opportunities.
The Super Keeper Cohort (SKC) is a bi-annual, two-day gathering of the most impactful, dynamic, and widely talented people in great firms. A room filled with the Next Gen of Executives.
Each SKC meeting will feel like an accelerator for people. We will provide programming for Super Keepers to grow in their careers, identify and channel their unique gifts, accelerate progress in their personal goals, and connect with people like them around the world.
It is designed to light an even more powerful fire under your SKs by providing them with a transformative cohort-based experience. We believe that you will grow and retain your Super Keepers by providing them with a transformative, cohort-based experience.
We know the impact and relevance of a network of people who are highly effective in the world. We have Young Presidents Organization, Crown Fellows, Techstars, Business School alumni associations, and more.
We believe there is no highly leverageable network for Super Keepers. Until now.
A Super Keeper is an executive-identified team member who embodies the following ethos:
SKs are natural leaders, even if they don’t manage anyone. They have persuasive authority even if they don’t have decision rights. They are a trusted voice.
SKs beat your expectations. Always. They are the glue of your organization, driving outcomes and culture from the middle. A SK isn’t keeping up with you. You need to keep up with them.
A SK makes a massive difference in your business and in the lives of those around them. They own your organization’s vision.
For this opportunity, a SK is operating in a role below the C suite. They are VPs, Directors, Managers, or IC’s. They keep your company running, but don’t run the company (yet).
