Wall Street Journal Bestseller

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.

From the Back Cover:

Are you a genius or a genius maker?

We've all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders. The first type drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the ones around them and always need to be the smartest ones in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment. On the other side of the spectrum are leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them. When these leaders walk into a room, lightbulbs go off over people's heads, ideas flow, and problems get solved. These are the leaders who inspire employees to stretch themselves to deliver results that surpass expectations. These are the Multipliers. And the world needs more of them, especially now, when leaders are expected to do more with less.

In this engaging and highly practical book, leadership expert Liz Wiseman and management consultant Greg McKeown explore these two leadership styles, persuasively showing how Multipliers can have a resoundingly 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.

In analyzing data from more than 150 leaders, Wiseman and McKeown have identified five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers. These five disciplines are not based on innate talent; indeed, they are skills and practices that everyone can learn to use—even lifelong and recalcitrant Diminishers. Lively, real-world case studies and practical tips and techniques bring to life each of these principles, showing you how to become a Multiplier too, whether you are a new or an experienced manager. Just imagine what you could accomplish if you could harness all the energy and intelligence around you. Multipliers will show you how.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Elizabeth Wiseman spent 17 years at Oracle working as a vice president alongside incredibly intelligent executives, affording her an inside perch from which she could observe how they used their individual capabilities in very different ways. Some leaders needed to be the smartest person in the room so they frequently overshadowed colleagues, killed ideas, and destroyed energy. Others used their intelligence to amplify the creativity and capabilities of the people around them - to help make everyone a genius. Witnessing this fascinating pattern, Wiseman and Greg McKeown launched a research project that involved interviews with more than 100 executives and their employees to uncover the differences between these two distinctive styles of leadership - what they call the Diminishers and the Multipliers.Using insightful, real-life examples, Multipliers defines and contrasts each style and lays out five key disciplines that can help managers avoid the Diminisher trap and become Multipliers: Create the Work Climate - Be The Teacher not The Tyrant; Set Direction - Be The Challenger not The Director; Manage Talent - Be The Talent Scout not The Empire Builder; Make Decisions - Be The Debate Maker not The Decision Maker; and, Deliver Results - Be The Teacher not The Micromanager. By applying these disciplines, current and aspiring managers will learn how to think and operate like Multipliers, and, in doing so, create genius everywhere, make employees smarter and more capable, and drive their teams to extraordinary performance.
