“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.
