Steve Farber

Steve Farber is the founder and CEO of The Extreme Leadership Institute, an organization devoted to working with individuals, teams, and organizations to develop build award-winning cultures and deliver radical results in business, non-profits, and education.

His 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 named one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time. His new book, Love Is Just Damn Good Business, will be published by McGraw-Hill in September of 2019.

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. He was director of service programs at TMI, an international training consultancy, 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, Farber established his own company, Extreme Leadership, Inc, where he is president and CEO. 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. His column, The Extreme Leadership Chronicles, can be found on Inc's online magazine.

Coaching and inspiring Extreme Leadership at all organizational levels is Steve's passion, and he does so with a style that is part strategist, part social commentator and all energy.
