Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter
Liz Wiseman, Harper-Collins ebooks (2017)
“Multipliers are genius makers. Multipliers invoke each person’s unique intelligence and create an atmosphere of genius – innovation, productive effort, and collective intelligence.
In studying Multipliers and Diminishers, we learned that at the most fundamental level, they get dramatically different results from their people, they hold a different logic and set of assumptions about people’s intelligence, and they do a small number of things very differently. Let’s first examine the impact of the Multiplier effect. Why do people get smarter and more capable around Multipliers? And how do they get twice as much from their resources as Diminishers?
Multipliers get more from their people because they are leaders who look beyond their own genius and focus their energy on extracting and extending the genius of others (p. 48-49).”
