In GREATER THAN YOURSELF, Steve Farber proves them wrong: in this powerful and inspiring story, Farber shows that the goal of a genuine leader is to help others--teammates, employees, and colleagues--become more capable, confident, and accomplished than they are themselves. Through the actions of a forward-thinking and extraordinarily successful CEO, Farber reveals the three keys to achieving this: Expand Yourself, Give Yourself, and Replicate Yourself.
Filled with actionable principles and innovative ideas, GREATER THAN YOURSELF is perhaps the most powerful message today's business leaders can learn.
