EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE
In this provocative keynote, Steve Farber
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

LEADING WITH LOVE IN A TIME OF FEAR
T H E S T R A T E G I C A D V A N T A G E F O R A P H Y S I C A L L Y – D I S T A N C E D W O R L D
From the bestselling author of The Radical Leap, The Radical Edge, and Greater Than Yourself comes the first keynote to directly address love as a hard-core business principle that generates measurable results – now more than ever.
Over the last 10 years alone, the business world has spent close to a trillion dollars on leadership development; yet, 73% of people are still disengaged in their work. 10 years ago, that number was 70%.
Something is dreadfully wrong.
Steve Farber has learned that the solution is to do something more radical, something extreme:
When love is part of an organization’s framework and operationalized in its culture, employees and customers feel genuinely valued. Employees who are passionate about the work that they do are more loyal, innovative, creative, and inspired, and that translates to great customer experience. They don’t serve others out of obligation, but because of a genuine desire to improve people’s lives. And when customers reciprocate by loving your products, your services, and your people, that’s when something great happens. That’s when you get loyalty. That’s when you get raving fans, and that’s where the money comes from. It’s a refreshingly human way of doing business.
Drawing on his work with a wide variety of companies from the Fortune 100 to smaller, entrepreneurial ventures, renown leadership expert Steve Farber shows you proven strategies, shares inspiring case studies, and teaches practical steps on how to build a corporate culture that operationalizes love as a significant competitive advantage.

GREATER THAN YOURSELF
T H E N E W G O L D S T A N D A R D F O R 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
Current, next generation, and high potential managers
and leaders at all organizational levels
THE PERSONAL SIDE OF CHANGE
M A N A G I N G R I S K F R O M T H E I N S I D E O U T
Every business book will tell you that it’s important to deal with and lead through change. But intellectual understanding of that truth usually isn’t enough to compel people to act, to try, to make the leap necessary for being proactive in a time of crisis. In this interactive keynote session, Farber teaches a new perspective on what it means to try, fail, learn from challenges, 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 change and apply what they’ve learned Try new things more readily and enthusiastically IDEAL AUDIENCE Front-line, executive, or mixed-level

EXTREME LEADERSHIP FROM THE C-SUITE
C R E A T I N G A C U L T U R E O F L E A D E R S H I P A T E V E R Y L E V E L
C-Suite executives have a unique leadership challenge: they live under a microscope; people
watch everything they do. So much so that their decisions, actions, behaviors, and communications
have a direct effect on the entire culture of the organization. That’s the good news. And, of course, it
can also be the bad news.
In Extreme Leadership From the C-Suite, Farber draws on his proven methodology and multiindustry experience to help officers and executives inspire and energize the entire enterprise. The result? A corporate culture that attracts and retains
the best talent, creates innovative products and services, and yields radical results.
