How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter.
Author: Greg McKeown and Liz Wiseman
Summary:What type of leader are you? Are you a Multiplier or a Diminisher? Multipliers use their intelligence to bring out the intelligence and ability of everyone else. Diminishers rely on their own intelligence because they think intelligence is a rare trait and they’re one of the few who have it. In Multipliers Liz Wiseman explains how Multipliers get two times more out of people than Diminishers, doubling the intelligence and capability of their organisation without adding headcount. Multipliers can even increase people’s intelligence. A thought-provoking, accessible, and essential exploration of why some leaders (“Diminishers”) drain capability and intelligence from their teams, while others (“Multipliers”) amplify it to produce better results. Including a foreword by Stephen R. Covey, as well the five key disciplines that turn smart leaders into genius makers, Multipliers is a must-read for everyone from first-time managers to world leaders.
