“FARBER’S WORK IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT AND MORE USEFUL TODAY THAN WHEN IT FIRST APPEARED ON THE SCENE”
-Tom Peters, International best-selling author of Excellence Now
Bring More Love, Energy, Audacity and Proof to Your Work and Your Life
With a groundbreaking new perspective, Steve Farber’s book, The Radical Leap, opens up a world of possibilities for today’s Extreme Leaders to elevate their leadership style by infusing it with a daring and innovative approach.
As Steve takes us on a journey toward leading with courage and love, we learn to abandon old methods and embrace taking risks, making mistakes in front of employees and being vulnerable. This exciting tale shatters how things have always been done and wipes the slate clean for a progressive new approach that stands the test of time.
Steve touches our hearts and opens our minds as we find ourselves by his side on a white sand beach under the brilliant California sun when he has a chance encounter with a surfer named Edg. Even though his interaction with this laid-back, easygoing surfer is but a brief moment in time, it becomes a catalyst for change in Steve’s life and career.
As his trajectory begins its dramatically altered course, Steve learns about Extreme Leadership and why it’s so vital to take the Radical Leap. He discovers why, and how, to cultivate Love, generate Energy, inspire Audacity and provide Proof (LEAP).
Steve’s profound experience improved every aspect of his life, and it became his mission to share that impact with others. The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership originally launched in 2004 and was hailed as one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time. It isn’t just a business parable, it’s also a story of connection, chance and change. Over the past 15 years, this incredible book has sold over 150,000 copies and has inspired leaders across the globe to infuse Love, Energy, Audacity and Proof into their work and life.
Although The Radical Leap is pioneering multitudes of Extreme Leaders in business, education, nonprofits and beyond, this awe-inspiring book is not only for business leaders. Its lessons can be applied by anyone who aspires to elevate their lives. Join the movement toward a better future by taking the Radical Leap today.
“I was so energized by The Radical Leap that we bought 200 copies and sent them as a gift to prospective customers who are allied with a competitor. In our message to them, we pointed out how the ideals of love, energy, audacity and proof so deftly presented in your book permeate how [we try] to conduct business everyday. After all, the best way to build rapport is to freely share knowledge. Your book was the perfect medium for us.”
“Your book was fantastic; it was as good as I have ever read on leadership. I have a company of over 400 employees—we have 82 branches and are in the mortgage business. We have a sales seminar once per year and we also get our top 15 managers together once per year. I would like to see if you have anything available in a small group format and to see what you provide to companies individually. I very much enjoyed your book and want to see if we can incorporate you and your information into a ‘company meeting’ format.”
“I am an assistant principal with Fulton County Schools in Georgia. I picked up your book, The Radical Leap, this past weekend. I have just finished the book and was very impressed with your approach… After finishing your book, I sat down with my principal and raved about the book. She has just ordered a copy for every member of our leadership team. I am looking forward to the discussions that will be generated as a result and the changes the approach will facilitate for [us].”
“Brilliant! Steve Farber is an awesome storyteller. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves a good story and wants to see the light! I found this book to be uplifting and a true eye-opener. Read it. You’ll love it.”
“The Radical Leap is catching on in my office. I told a colleague who went off and bought a copy and left it on her desk. Someone saw it, picked it up, started reading and went out and bought a copy. It’s getting around that I read it over the weekend and I made a ‘Radical Leap’ in my life. WOW, I’ve never seen so much excitement over one book. I’m so happy and excited for you.”
“WOW!! I finished your book last night – after starting it on the train in the evening!! I do believe that is the only time that I have wished that my train ride was longer!! I have already recommended it to two of my former colleagues. I loved it!!”
“I hope your ears were burning. [A colleague] and I were just discussing you and The Radical Leap, and since I have currently gifted 7 copies of said book to friends and associates, I figured it was high time to contact you. I would like to request permission to use some of your material from The Radical Leap in one speaking program and one training program this month. I will be working with a financial organization as well as an insurance organization, and I believe my topic for them would only be enhanced by a) referring to ‘the Leap’ and OS!M and b) giving them the homework assignment of reading your book!
“This book is awesome. I wish my graduate program in Managerial Leadership had this as required reading. I also think this should be required reading in my Army Reserve unit. Great stuff! Thanks.”
