Extreme Leadership Expert
Steve Farber redefines what it means to lead and make a difference in the business world and beyond. The bestselling author of one of the “100 Best Business Books of All Time” and an accomplished senior level leadership consultant, Farber believes that a genuine leader is one who helps others—teammates, employees, and colleagues—become more capable, confident, and accomplished than they are themselves. With talks that are as eminently practical as they are inspiring and entertaining, Farber’s powerful message is one that cannot, and should not, be ignored.
A subject-matter expert in business leadership and one of Inc’s global Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts, Farber is a senior-level leadership coach and consultant who has worked with and spoken to a wide variety of public and private organizations in virtually every arena, from the tech sector to financial services, manufacturing, health care, hospitality, entertainment, retail, and government.
In 1989, after having run his own financial services company, Farber devoted his professional life to the field of leadership development and has been at it ever since. In 2000, Farber established his own company, Extreme Leadership, Inc., where he is president and CEO. He is also the co-founder of The Center for Social Profit Leadership, a non-profit organization formed to serve the leadership development needs of social entrepreneurs, and served as vice chairman on the Board of Directors of the world-renown organization, Up With People, a global leadership program for students from 18 to 29 years old.
Farber’s third book, Greater Than Yourself: The Ultimate Lesson In Leadership, was a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller. His second book, The Radical Edge: Stoke Your Business, Amp Your Life, and Change the World, was hailed as “a playbook for harnessing the power of the human spirit.” And his first book, The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership, is already considered a classic in the leadership field. It received Fast Company magazine’s Readers’ Choice Award and was recently named one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time.
Farber’s consulting clients and audiences have included organizations in almost every arena, from the tech sector to financial services, manufacturing, health care, hospitality, entertainment, retail, and even the US government.
