Listed as one of Inc.'s “Global Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts,” Steve Farber has shaken up and re-defined what it means to be a leader of substance, significance, and success. He is one of the world’s most in-demand leadership speakers and executive coaches and the best-selling author of three ground-breaking books. His third book, Greater Than Yourself: The Ultimate Lesson In Leadership, was a Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-seller. 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, The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership – now out in its 10th anniversary edition, is already considered a classic in the leadership field. It received Fast Company’s "Readers’ Choice Award" and was recently named one of the “100 Best Business Books of All Time.”

Farber shares deeply thought-provoking and eminently practical leadership techniques and tips. Whatever the audience, his voice is always humorous, poignant, and original and his speeches inspiring and entertaining. No matter what is challenging an organization—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 leadership. Farber’s “Extreme Leadership” framework is a new and vital paradigm for this exciting—and challenging—business environment. Coaching and inspiring leaders at all organizational levels is Farber’s passion, and he does so with a style that is part strategist, part social commentator, and all energy.

A Universal Message. A subject-matter expert in business leadership, 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, government, and more.

Leading From Experience. 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. He was director of service programs at TMI, an international training consultancy, and then worked for six 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, he established his own company, Extreme Leadership, Inc, where he is president and CEO. Additionally, he is the founder of The Extreme Leadership Institute, an organization devoted to the cultivation and development of extreme leaders in the business community, non-profit sector, and education space. He is a member of The Transformational Leadership Council and has served as vice chairman on the Board of Directors of the world-renown, Up With People, a global leadership program for students from 18 to 29 years old.

Steve has worked with Johns Hopkins, Cisco, Intel, TriNet, Hyatt, and hundreds of other organizations large and small.
