Publisher's Summary

Narrated by the author. A new, tenth-anniversary edition of the leadership classic that was hailed as one of the 100 best business books of all time.

In his exciting and timeless business parable, The Radical Leap, Steve Farber explores an entirely new leadership model, one in which leaders aren't afraid to take risks, make mistakes in front of employees, or actively solicit employee feedback. His audiobook dispenses with the typical, tired notions of what it means to be a leader.

Farber's modern parable begins on a sunny California beach where he has a strange and unexpected encounter with a surfer named Edg. Despite his unassuming appearance, the enigmatic Edg seems to know an awful lot about leadership, and this brief interaction propels Steve into an unforgettable journey. Along the way he learns about extreme leadership - and what it means to take the radical leap:

  • Cultivate love
  • Generate energy
  • Inspire audacity
  • Provide proof

Geared to people at any level who aspire to change things for the better, The Radical Leap is creating legions of extreme leaders in business, education, nonprofits, and beyond.

This audio production was engineered, directed, and edited by Richard Del Maestro, Studio Del Maestro. Original music by Billy White Acre, Big Planet Music.

    "Good lessons, clunky told"

    Yeah, this is the kind of book you either love or hate. The lessons in this book are valuable, but when it is told in a story format, it loses its gravity.

    "Condescending and fake story with some good points"

    It was a struggle to complete, but I powered through because it did offer several great points.

    Problem is, the story was ridiculous, fake and condescending. If you don't mind that sort of thing then you'll like this book.

    "Loved the story, humor and lessons"

    I met Steve in September 2016 and he spoke to a small group of us for about an hour. I knew than that I would find a ton of value in his book, and I was not disappointed!! I have been reading a lot of personal and business development books lately and wish there were more like this! The characters, story and humor brought the lessons to life and really hit home. So basic and so profound. Read it and be prepared to be motivated to help change the world!
