Multipliers®: How the Best Leaders Ignite Everyone’s Intelligence

Leaders have the power to access all the intelligence and capability people have to give and they also have the power to diminish talent and energy. This is the focus of Liz Wiseman’s book Multipliers How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter.

 Wiseman’s research discovered two types of leaders: Multipliers and Accidental Diminishers. Multipliers capitalize on peoples’ intelligence, talent, and insights without asking for a bigger investment by:

  1. Reducing the impact of diminisher tendencies.
  2. Asking better questions.
  3. Looking for genius.
  4. Creating space for others.
  5. Offering more significant challenges.
