Liz Wiseman – Global Leadership Summit 2013

imagesMultipliers

A Multiplier is a Leader who amplifies and multiplies the intelligence of those around them.

Why do some leaders drain intelligence while others multiply it?

There’s more intelligence in our leadership teams than seems available to the naked eye. When you lead like a multiplier people can literally get smarter working for you.

Diminisher:

Doesn’t listen

Micro-manages

Doesn’t delegate

Controlling

Selfish

Multiplier:

Empowers

Listens

Communicates

Trust

Empowers

A diminisher gets less than half of their teams capability

A multiplier gets more than 90% of their teams capability

A multiplier creates an environment that gives people space to do their best thinking and do their best work.

Are you leading like a genius that knows everything that needs to be done (Diminisher)? Or are you leading in such a way that creates genius in others (Multiplier)?

Everything above was said by Liz Wiseman or are my quick summary of what was said.

 

Still Learning,

Paul
