About Fahd
Fahd Alhattab is a workplace and leadership development expert specializing in training startup managers, teams, and executives on Unicorn Leadership. He’s now focused on bringing his client-based experience and the most current, relevant research to Unicorn Lab’s comprehensive enterprise leadership training.

Based on this foundation of all of the best practices, Fahd helps organizations build high-performing, unstoppable teams by transforming their managers into leaders. His focus is to bring his experience now working with clients and pulling on the latest organizational research to present all of the best practices of how to build high-performing teams in comprehensive enterprise leadership training.
Fahd’s path to leadership began with philanthropy. Compelled by his background as an at-risk immigrant from a low-income family, he raised over $1M for local charities, founded a camp for underprivileged children, and was awarded Canada’s Top 20 Under 20 Award for his dedication to the community.

On the pursuit of entrepreneurship, Fahd served two terms as President of Carleton University Students’ Association where he represented more than 25K students, managed a team of 150 staff, and oversaw the allocation of a $9M budget.

During his Presidency, Fahd launched a student entrepreneurship center that has since founded +50 student startups and help them raise more than +$300K in seed capital. This catapulted him to develop a mobile tech startup.

Built on thirteen years of experience building successful teams, Fahd identified the tried and true ingredient that set high performing teams apart from competitors — they had leaders who prioritized team performance over individual success. He named them Unicorn Leaders.

Delivered through captivating and actionable keynotes, Fahd now retrains managers to become architects of effective teams through his principle of Unicorn Leadership.

Fahd has spoken to +50K people across North America on leadership and been named Rising Star Speaker and Most Entertaining Speaker by the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers.

Working alongside his team at Unicorn Labs, Fahd is committed to giving start-up founders the leadership skills to build Unicorn companies. He delivers team-building retreats and customized training programs that upgrade staff and start-up managers into self-driven leaders.

“When leaders ask how they can transform with just ONE change, my answer is always enthusiasm. If you can approach problem, situation, opportunity, and relationships with a hint of enthusiasm, it changes everything.”
Fahd Alhattab
CEO, UnicornLabs
Unicorn Leaders create opportunities managers don’t. They are heros within your organization that attract and retain top-tier talent. They know how to engage the multigenerational workforce and build high performing teams that create extraordinary impact through sheer performance. They transform businesses, disrupt markets, and their ripple effects across your entire organization will elevate your company culture and accelerate growth by a factor of 10.
‍Unlike unicorns, Unicorn Leaders aren’t imaginary beings. They are rare individuals who mastered how to successfully combine drive, intelligence, and humility to attract followers and to encourage them to perform to do the best of their abilities.Many of them exist amongst us. But without access to leadership training and tools to transform, many of them won’t reach their leadership potential. But a simple push in the right direction can have a compounding effect on personal development. And as a millennial workplace expert, Fahd can deliver that value to your startup and audiences.

Our Principles
The Unicorn Labs Values
At Unicorn Labs, we believe values aren’t just statements to be put on the wall. They are the essence of our work and culture, serving as unwavering compass points in uncharted territories.   Given that they were collaborated on for the team, we typically use them internally to act as a guiding compass in uncharted waters. But we want you to glimpse who Unicorn Labs is as an organization. They reflect not only our beliefs but also our relentless pursuit to embody them. Have a look…
Always begin with relentlessly high standards, but ship your product before you’ve met them.
When your curiosity strikes, feed it; let it be insatiable.
Have a rigorous work ethic with intensity in the hour, not the amount of hours.
Tenaciously adapt to everything thrown your way, but hold onto your purpose and values.
Live with infectious enthusiasm.
Be unwaveringly disruptive unless of course, disruption becomes the norm.
Always play the long game.

What Are The Six Levels of High-Performing Teams?
