Long-time friend, former colleague and best-selling author Steve Farber joins me as Guest and has me laughing & inspired. Steve has been named one of Inc's global Top 50 Leadership & Management Experts.
In this interview, he shares the keys to Extreme Leadership, his passionate belief that LOVE is the foundation of good business, as well as his own humbling moments with unexpected feedback.
Steve’s first book, The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership, received Fast Company’s Readers’ Choice Award and was recently named one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time. His second book, The Radical Edge, was hailed as “a playbook for harnessing the power of the human spirit.” His third book, Greater Than Yourself: The Ultimate Lesson In Leadership, was a Wall Street Journal® and USA Today® bestseller.
In 1989, after having run his own financial services company, Steve became a director at TMI, and then worked for 6 years as Vice President and Official Mouthpiece (that’s what it said on his business card) of The Tom Peters Company where he met several of his mentors including author / gurus Tom Peters, Jim Kouzes, and Terry Pearce. In 2000, Steve established his own company, Extreme Leadership, Inc, where he is president and CEO, as well as founder of the Extreme Leadership Institute. SteveFarber.com
