Editorial Reviews


In Steve Farber's book: The Radical Leap Re-Energized :Doing What You Love in the Service of People Who Love What They Do I found it to be an engrossing book that stimulates the dreamer in all of us who truly want to make a difference. As I read the book I thought of the ideas Mr. Farber shared and how I would enthusiastically share the framework of The Radical Leap Re-Energize... with my colleagues since we share a common goal. Throughout the book, the loudest part for me was the importance that we must truly believe and embrace “our dream” to make a difference in the lives of people we serve. Clearly, it is often overwhelming trying to bring forth positive change when you constantly hear the negative chatter in your head implanted by those around you. Exploring the concepts/ framework in The Radical Leap Re-Energized: Doing What You Love is honestly the reason why people enter the fields/careers they do...Love. From an educator/team leader viewpoint the book directed me to channel my focus as positive energy to encourage others to maintain their dream and push forward in order to bring about positive enlightening change for our students. This energy will impact our future leaders and catch on like wildfire to move our society back into greatness. Many of the ideas Mr. Farber shared were humorous yet extremely insightful and unforgettable. Somewhere I read that when you reach a person on an emotional level their retention and application of the information stays with them longer. Mr. Farber does just that for the reader.
Mr. Farber and his book motivated me to enter each day with tireless positive energy, boldness to silence the negative background noise and use that bold courage to stand firmly with those of us sharing the common goal to positively move toward achieving our goal.
Mr. Farber's message is life changing and insightful regardless of where you stand in the line for making a difference doing what you love for the service of others.

Don't think for a moment that if you read the original Radical Leap and Radical Edge that there isn't anything to learn by reading this book! Not only is the combination of the two connected stories re-energized, but being refreshed in the true meaning of leadership - extreme leadership, the real purpose of leaders, and the creative and humorous story-telling style of Steve Farber are also re-energizing.

In a great merger of traditional and new story-telling medium, there are QR codes peppered throughout the book that link the reader to wonderful video clips of the author, providing enhanced content that helps the book come alive in the hands of the reader.

Know also that the lessons in this book are not just for business leadership. Although Radical Leap Re-energized is a business parable, the concepts of LEAP (cultivate Love, generate Energy, inspire Audacity and provide Proof) are just as applicable to every day life as they are to the boardroom or cubicle row. "Doing what you love in the service of people who love what you do" can be applied to all areas of life.

If you haven't been introduced to Steve Farber and his teachings on leadership, this book is a great place to start. Then, get a WUP and keep growing. (Read the book to find out what a WUP is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Radical made Practical November 5, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Our organizational mission is: "Creating and Supporting Profound Leadership Making a Difference in the World." We live it, breath it, believe it every day. That mission is informed in no small way by Steve Farber's work. Lessons from Radical Leap and Radical Edge are part of our foundational teaching. In fact, I don't know how many copies of Radical Leap I have given away as it is the first and best book I share with someone on a path of leadership growth and development. No other book is so approachable, so practical, so obvious in providing profound insight into the fundamental core nature of leadership.

Now, with "Re-Energized," the material and message become even stronger. As I work in the realm of public sector leadership, Radical Edge with it's business focus was always a little off in focus. But, "Re-Energized" broadens the focus of the whole Radical message to encompass leadership in all dimensions of society while also strengthening the overall learning.

Plus, it is still a great read, much easier than all the academic leadership tombs. And, it delivers a fundamental, profound, and true learning in a way no other book can. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Read For All Leaders November 5, 2011
This is a brilliant read for all leaders. The storytelling is magnificent and the lessons even more so. Steve Farber does an excellent job of outlining why radical leadership is critical today. Thank you for creating a paradigm shift for me, Steve. I'm a much stronger example for others having read this book and applying the principles.

I have shared Steve's books with so many of my colleagues. Each time I hear back from them they say, "I feel like he wrote this book just for me!". Steve has a way of applying applying fundamental experiences into a story that everyone can relate to and, in the process, he shares an equally fundamental framework for how to better lead others--and, most importantly, how we can better lead ourselves!

What people like about Steve's message and framework is that it is easily understandable and applicable. No "20 steps to Success" stuff; no checklists! Just questions to ask yourself to help you do what you love to do in the service of people who love what you do.

The LEAP framework has changed my life in big and little ways, and its had the same impact on so many of the friends and colleagues I have shared the book with. Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master of Applied Storytelling November 3, 2011
I am so jealous of Steve Farber! Seriously, I am. Why? I absolutely admire anyone who can weave educational content into a fictional story format that is a page-turner. Let's just call him a Master of Applied Storytelling.

I'm also jealous of Steve's characters in both this and Greater Than Yourself. One day I want to just be walking along and suddenly engage with an amazing teacher. But in all reality, we all have these amazing teachers all around us (I have many). We just have to watch for the signs (that's what the WUP notebook is for -- see the book for what that's all about). While I don't have an official notebook of sorts, since reading Radical Leap Re-Energized, I have to admit I'm now on the lookout for these signs everywhere.

In all honesty, I liked Radical Leap Re-Energized even better than Greater Than Yourself, though both have outstanding messages about what it truly means to be a leader. Another win for Steve Farber!

5.0 out of 5 stars Got the first? Buy it Again! October 27, 2011
The sign of a great story is that you're thinking about the characters and what they're doing when the book is no where around. I've read this book more times than any other book in my library. I've given copies of it and recommend it to my friends. Inside you'll find that it's a story about you and where you're going.

It reads like water or a story told by your best friend.
Maybe that's because that's the sort of person Steve Farber is.

If you're not sure this book is for you ... watch any video of him talking. He's an amazing leader, writer, storyteller and human being.
