Radical Accountability: Making the LEAP From Individual Contributor to Extreme Leader
Whatever the challenge at your company—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 this: someone has to do something significant and enlist others to help. Someone, in other words, has to take accountability. Someone has to lead. And it doesn’t have to be the boss. 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. In Radical Accountability, leadership speaker, Steve Farber, will show you four personal strategies for being the architect of transformation from any position or level in the company.
The Extreme Leadership Jam Session
Here’s the idea: Steve’s been in the trenches. He has over 20 years of experience working with thousands of business leaders in all kinds of industries. And much of that 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. To put it simply: there is no script when you’re dealing with your client’s current business realities. Now, the fact is that Steve delivers a powerful and entertaining keynote speech. And he loves to do it. But the Extreme Leadership Jam Session is a departure from the leadership speaker norm, because there is no script. With the exception of a couple of principles to set the stage, there is no specific list of points to be covered. The audience will determine the course of the program. Right on the spot. And the program will develop according to the group’s most pressing leadership needs and questions. THIS WOULD SCARE THE PANTS OFF OF MANY “PROFESSIONAL SPEAKERS.” Take away their script, and you take away their net. And many speakers either don’t like that, or, frankly, have nothing to say beyond the scripted word. Farber loves it, and so will you…if you have the nerve to give it a try.
