Liz Wiseman is president of The Wiseman Group, a leadership research and development center headquartered in Silicon Valley. She advises senior executives and leads strategy and leadership forums for executive teams worldwide. A former executive at Oracle Corporation, she worked as the Vice President of Oracle University and as the global leader for Human Resource Development for 17 years.
In Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, Wiseman reveals ways to access the most valuable resource of all: intelligence. Making today’s challenge of insufficient resources virtually irrelevant, Wiseman shares a novel approach that has the potential to do for today’s knowledge economy what the invention of the assembly line did for our previous manufacturing economy. It all comes down to the kind of leader you are.
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 end, 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 to deliver results that surpass expectations. These are the “Multipliers”—exactly what’s needed when companies have to do more with less.
