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.

Everyone wants to elicit more from the people with whom they work (or live). Liz Wiseman and her colleague and primary contributor Greg McKeown show you how. They know you can draw more from people by making more of them - by multiplying their contributions. This book names the ways in which managers help others grow to become more than they thought they could be - or halt their growth and make them less than they wanted to be. Anchored in the research of the authors, as well as work from Carol Dweck and multiple-intelligences guru Daniel Goleman, this book will challenge you at every turn, adding value to your work and life. Readers with a natural distrust of dichotomies may question the ease with which the authors find a yang for every yin. For every "Challenger" there is a "Know-It-All." For every "Investor" there is a "Micromanager." Instead of being suspicious, think of these opposites as a continuum between those who "Multiply" and those who "Diminish" the talent around them. getAbstract recommends that leaders at all levels follow the suggestion of K.R. Sridhar, CEO of Bloom Energy: "I have zero tolerance if someone does not run the experiment." If even a single person reports to you, run the experiment. Read the book.

I can not flinch from the unintended political relevance of this work. We seek leadership in our gov't as well as our economy... and the past 15 years of Federal leadership has been unabashed Diminishers. The whole Tea Party Movement is to create a Gov't of Multipliers... I think that is a very objective observation. For those that wish to understand the clear Heart of the Conservative, as we see ourselves, understand the mind of a Multiplier. For those that project Progressivism, you will need to forever argue the mind of the Diminisher.
