Are you a genius or a genius maker? The first type of leaders drain intelligence, energy, and capability from ones around them and always need to be the smartest ones in the room. These are idea killers, energy sappers, diminishers of talent and commitment. The other leaders use their intelligence to amplify smarts and capabilities of people around them. These are the leaders who inspire employees to stretch themselves to deliver results that surpass expectations. These are the Multipliers. In this book, Liz Wiseman and Greg McKeown explore these two leadership styles, showing how Multipliers can have a 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. Aalyzing data from over 150 leaders, Wiseman and McKeown have identified five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers. These five disciplines are skills and practices that everyone can learn to use. Real-world case studies and practical tips and techniques show you how to become a Multiplier too--Publisher's description.
"A thought-provoking, accessible, and essential exploration of why some leaders (called "Diminishers") drain capability and intelligence from their teams while others (called "Multipliers") amplify it to produce better results"--Provided by publisher.
