Ep 086: Liz Wiseman on The Multiplier Effect
What kind of leader gets the most out of people? In this engaging talk from the 2013 Global Leadership Summit, best-selling author and CEO, Liz Wiseman, talks about the characteristics of “Multipliers” (leaders who empower and release others), and “Diminishers” (leaders who limit and restrict the potential of those they lead). Wiseman also shares subtle ways leaders function as “accidental diminishers,” and the most practical shift we can make in order to start becoming a better Multiplier.
