Your Radical Leap Forward at Work and Beyond
Based on The Radical Leap, which was 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, 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...

  • Inspire yourself and others to achieve extraordinary results
  • Earn your customers’ and employees’ love and loyalty
  • Engage yourself and others—even in troubled or transitional times

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

    The New Gold Standard for Mentoring and Talent Development
    The greatest leaders become so by causing others to be greater than themselves. In this program—based on his Wall Street Journal bestseller, Greater Than Yourself—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 – Deepen and expand your personal capabilities
  • Give Yourself – Share your knowledge, network, and experience to help others grow
  • Replicate Yourself – Create a culture of coaching and mentorship

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

    How to Engage and Inspire Employees at Every Level
    There are two sure-fire ways to change an organization’s culture. One, do nothing. And, two, do anything. That’s the very nature of a culture – it’s always evolving. Organizations are groups of people who are constantly changing. For that reason, developing a good culture is like developing a good relationship–it requires constant attention and never-ending awareness. Farber’s proven 7-step plan for improving company culture provides actionable insights, including startling new research on how informal networks can help—or hinder—an organization committed to growth.

    Farber helps executives cultivate a culture that makes a positive di erence in the lives of their employees and organizations.

    Moving from Fear of Failure to Joy of Discovery
    “If the only reason you can think of to not do something is because the idea scares you, that’s the reason to do it.” –Steve Farber

    Every business book will tell you that it’s important to take risks and learn from your mistakes. But intellectual understanding of that truth usually isn’t enough to compel people to act, to try, to make the leap necessary for creating innovative products or services. In this interactive keynote session, Farber takes the participants on a voyage of self-discovery leading to a new perspective on what it means try, fail, learn from mistakes, and then succeed in the end.

    Participants will:
  • Increase their personal capacity for risk
  • View their challenges as positive adventures vs frightening obstacles
  • Become more innovative in their approach to work
  • Learn from mistakes and apply what they’ve learned • Try new things more readily and enthusiastically

    (Ideal audience: front-line, executive, or mixed-level)

    A Guide to Uncommon Achievement in Every Aspect of Life
    In this provocative keynote, Steve Farber redefines the conventional meaning of the word, “accountability,” and takes you to an audacious level of leadership, by showing how a successful business, a rewarding personal life, and a world-changing legacy are not mutually exclusive ambitions.

    Create remarkable legacies at work and at home by learning how to...
  • Determine and clarify your personal focus as a leader
  • Use a simple technique to create and bring innovative ideas to your business • Anticipate and respond to the unspoken needs of people and markets
  • Hold yourself and others to an unprecedented level of personal accountability

    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.

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

    On-The-Spot Group Coaching
    For over 25 years, Steve Farber’s been in the business trenches with thousands of leaders in all kinds of industries. And much of his 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.

    The Extreme Leadership Jam Session is a departure from the “speaker” norm. The audience will determine the agenda—right on the spot—according to the participant’s most pressing leadership needs and questions. This allows Farber to be a coach-in- residence and o er very specific advice and counsel in the moment.

    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, has a quick discussion according to Farber’s guidelines and then generates One Important Question about leadership as it relates to their current needs.
  • 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 actions that people need to take right now.

    (Ideal audience: front-line employees or mixed level groups. Often used as a breakout session following a keynote presentation.)
