Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter
We've all experienced two dramatically different types of leaders. The first type consists of individuals who drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them and always need to be the smartest people in the room. They are the idea killers, the energy sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment. The second type, on the other side of the spectrum, consists of leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the intelligence and capabilities of the people around them. When these leaders walk into a room, light bulbs go off over people's heads, ideas flow, and problems get solved. They are the leaders who inspire employees to stretch themselves and get more from other people. They are the "multipliers." And the world needs more of them, especially now that leaders are expected to do more with less.
In this highly engaging talk, speaker Liz Wiseman will share the research behind "multipliers" and illustrate the resoundingly positive and profitable effect these multipliers have on organizations - how they get more done with fewer resources, develop and attract talent, and cultivate new ideas and energy to drive organizational change and innovation. She'll introduce the five disciplines that distinguish "multipliers" from "diminishers" and provide practical tips for leading like a "multiplier."
