Women Lead Webinar Series
Are you a genius or a genius maker?
We’ve all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders. The first type drains intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them and always needs to be the smartest person 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, light bulbs go off over people’s heads; ideas flow and problems get solved. These are the leaders who inspire employees to stretch themselves and get more from other people. These are the Multipliers. And the world needs more of them, especially now when leaders are expected to do more with less.
In this highly engaging talk, Liz Wiseman will:
- Share the research behind Multipliers and illustrate the resoundingly positive and profitable effect these Multipliers have on organizations
- Share how they get more done with fewer resources, develop and attract talent, and cultivate new ideas and energy to drive organizational change and innovation
- Introduce the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers and provide practice tips for leading like a Multiplier
