Leadership has to do with who you are, how you live, your perspective on the world and your ability to influence people around you in a positive direction.

Steve Farber, president and founder of The Extreme Leadership Institute, explains how and why we need to choose to lead regardless of our environment.

Steve reveals 4 powerful principles on how we can adopt the mindset of the world’s best leaders and rise up to lead regardless of our position, title or level of authority. He discusses why we should never underestimate our power to transform an organization and shares the key questions we need to ask ourselves to lead powerfully in not only our workplace, but in every area of our life. 

What can I do right now regardless of what anyone else is doing to change my piece of the world for the better?
