The Personal Side Of Innovation

Managing Risk From The Inside Out

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 teaches a new perspective on what it means to 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

Creating A Culture Of Leadership At Every Level

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.

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. For that reason, developing a good culture is like developing a good relationship–it requires constant attention and never-ending awareness from the C-Suite on down.

In Extreme Leadership From the C-Suite, Farber draws on his proven methodology and multi-industry 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.

Love Is Just Damn Good Business

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.

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:
Operationalize love as a core business practice.

To be clear, this isn’t about group hugs in the elevator. This isn’t about love as a sentiment; it’s about love as a discipline, as a practice.

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.

Radical Accountability

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.

The Extreme Leadership Jam Session

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 offer very specific advice and counsel in the moment.
Here’s how it works:

1 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.

2 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.

3 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.

4 And away we go! Learning about the Extreme Leadership actions that people need to take right now.

Front-line employees or mixed-level groups. Often used as a breakout session following a keynote presentation.
