Are you a genius or a genius "maker"?
We've all had experience with two dramatically different types
of leaders. The first type drain intelligence, energy, and
capability from the ones around them and always need to be the
smartest ones in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy
sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment. On the other
side of the spectrum are leaders who use their intelligence to
amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them. When
these leaders walk into a room, lightbulbs go off over people's
heads, ideas flow, and problems get solved. These are the leaders
who inspire employees to stretch themselves to deliver results that
surpass expectations. These are the Multipliers. And the world
needs more of them, especially now, when leaders are expected to do
more with less.
In this engaging and highly practical book, leadership expert
Liz Wiseman and management consultant Greg McKeown explore these
two leadership styles, persuasively showing how Multipliers can
have a resoundingly positive and profitable effect on
organizations--getting more done with fewer resources, developing
and attracting talent, and cultivating new ideas and energy to
drive organizational change and innovation.
In analyzing data from more than 150 leaders, Wiseman and
McKeown have identified five disciplines that distinguish
Multipliers from Diminishers. These five disciplines are not based
on innate talent; indeed, they are skills and practices that
everyone can learn to use--even lifelong and recalcitrant
Diminishers. Lively, real-world case studies and practical tips and
techniques bring to life each of these principles, showing you how
to become a Multiplier too, whether you are a new or an experienced
manager. Just imagine what you could accomplish if you could
harness all the energy and intelligence around you. "Multipliers"
will show you how.
