Extreme Leadership: Your Radical Leap Forward at Work and Beyond
Based on the book named as one of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time

In this chaotic and extreme age, business leaders must demonstrate an unprecedented level of passion, determination, foresight, dedication, and fearlessness. In this wildly popular speech, leadership speaker, Steve Farber, shows you how to use the LEAP framework – Love, Energy, Audacity and Proof to radically improve your organization and your life. In this energetic and insightful program, you will discover how to…

  • Harness fear and use it to your advantage
  • Use the power of the heart to achieve the extraordinary at work
  • Inspire yourself and others to change the world you live in
  • Earn your customers’ and employees’ love and loyalty
  • Keep yourself and others passionately engaged in the work at hand—even in troubled or difficult times

(Ideal audience: current, next generation, and high potential managers and leaders at all organizational levels)

Greater Than Yourself: The New Gold Standard for Mentoring and Talent Development

The truly great leaders in life and work become so by causing others to be greater than themselves. In this program—based on his Wall Street Journal bestseller, Greater Than Yourself—leadership speaker, Steve Farber, shows that dedicating yourself to bringing others along so that they can achieve more than you is the ultimate way to boost talent, ramp productivity and create truly significant current and future leaders. You will be challenged to aspire to the new gold standard in leadership with a powerful, three-step method:

  • Expand Yourself – you’ll discover tools to deepen and expand your personal capabilities—the raw material for true leadership.
  • Give Yourself – you’ll learn the art of ‘philanthropizing’ your leadership approach—the raw material for developing capacity in others.
  • Replicate Yourself – you’ll experience the power of expanding beyond your personal, one-to-one influence—the raw material for changing your organization for the better.

(Ideal audience: current, next generation, and high potential managers and leaders at all organizational levels)

“At first this [approach] may seem counterintuitive, but I encourage you to set aside your pre-conceived notions of success and accomplishment and throw yourself whole-heartedly into the Greater Than Yourself endeavor.” – Patrick Lencioni, bestselling author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Radical Accountability: Making the LEAP From Individual Contributor to Extreme Leader

Whatever the challenge at your company—improving customer service, coping with change, inspiring transformation, improving corporate culture, recruiting and retaining great talent, building teamwork, fostering innovation—it all comes down to this: someone has to do something significant and enlist others to help. Someone, in other words, has to take accountability. Someone has to lead. And it doesn’t have to be the boss. Leadership, ultimately, has nothing to do with the title on your business card or your position on the organizational chart. It’s about who you are and what you do to change things for the better—regardless of your “place” in the company. In Radical Accountability, leadership speaker, Steve Farber, will show you four personal strategies for being the architect of transformation from any position or level in the company.

  • Cultivate Love
  • Generate Energy
  • Inspire Audacity
  • Provide Proof

(Ideal audience: front-line employees or mixed level groups)

The Extreme Leadership Jam Session

Here’s the idea: Steve’s been in the trenches. He has over 20 years of experience working with thousands of business leaders in all kinds of industries. And much of that experience has revolved around having open, honest and powerful conversations about the nature of leadership with his clients and then helping them to apply new ideas to their specific challenges. To put it simply: there is no script when you’re dealing with your client’s current business realities.

Now, the fact is that Steve delivers a powerful and entertaining keynote speech. And he loves to do it. But the Extreme Leadership Jam Session is a departure from the leadership speaker norm, because there is no script. With the exception of a couple of principles to set the stage, there is no specific list of points to be covered. The audience will determine the course of the program. Right on the spot. And the program will develop according to the group’s most pressing leadership needs and questions.

THIS WOULD SCARE THE PANTS OFF OF MANY “PROFESSIONAL SPEAKERS.” Take away their script, and you take away their net. And many speakers either don’t like that, or, frankly, have nothing to say beyond the scripted word. Farber loves it, and so will you…if you have the nerve to give it a try.

Here's how it works:

  • Farber sets the stage and proposes a few challenging ideas to the group. He briefly defines Extreme Leadership and talks about the importance of open dialogue.
  • The audience — which could be as small as 10 people or as large as several thousand — forms into small groups or clusters, has a quick discussion according to Farber’s guidelines and then generates One Important Question about leadership as it relates to their current work/life situation.
  • Farber fields the questions (as many as possible giving the amount of available time and the size of the group), and, when appropriate, facilitates a discussion with the entire audience.
  • And away we go! Learning about the Extreme Leadership principles that people need right now.

(Ideal audience: current, next generation, and high potential managers and leaders at all organizational levels)
