An inspiring parable on the greatest leadership lesson of all—that the best leaders go beyond the tenets of the Golden Rule and help others to be better than they are themselves

Too many people assume that the timeless principles of genuine leadership—of helping others achieve their full potential—don’t apply Monday through Friday during work hours or in any circumstance where a paycheck is involved.

In Greater Than Yourself, Steve Farber proves them wrong. With this powerful and eye-opening story, Farber shows that the goal of true leadership is to help others—teammates, employees, and colleagues—become more capable, confident, and accomplished than their leaders. Through the actions of a forward-thinking and extraordinarily successful CEO, Farber reveals the three keys to achieving what he calls GTY: Expand Yourself, Give Yourself, and Replicate Yourself.

Filled with thought-provoking ideas and actionable principles, Greater Than Yourself offers a powerful message for today’s business leaders.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Greater Than Yourself is a terrific—no, wonderful—idea. Steve is a tremendous writer and an original thinker.”
—Tom Peters
 
“Raising someone up does not reduce your stature—in fact, it exalts you in ways you have to experience to believe. Greater Than Yourself shows how you can begin improving the world by giving of yourself. It’s a wonderful message wrapped in a highly entertaining, well-written story.”
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level

Greater Than Yourself is more than a good tale well told. It’s a path-breaking book that brings to life the ultimate leadership lesson—that the highest purpose of our work is the development of other leaders. It’s a gift for your mind and your spirit. I enthusiastically recommend it.”—Jim Kouzes, coauthor of the bestselling book The Leadership Challenge, Dean’s Executive Professor of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University
