In today’s complex environments, leaders are being asked to drive innovation with fewer resources. Some teams are highly productive while others are not. Based on the WSJ best-selling leadership book Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter by Liz Wiseman, this session illustrates how some leaders drain creativity out of their teams while other leaders foster a culture of intelligence and passion. Leaders and team members alike will benefit from learning how to fully engage the talent around them.

Participants will:

  • Learn the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers and how these disciplines impact their organizations;
  • Be able to identify how they and the leaders in their organization may be accidentally diminishing the intelligence and capabilities of their teams; and,
  • Gain an understanding of the Foundational Multipliers skills and techniques that they can immediately employ to amplify the intelligence and capabilities of the people around them.

Session Description

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 need to be the smartest person in the room. These are the idea killers, 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 further than they thought possible. These are the Multipliers. And the world needs more of them, especially now when leaders are expected to do more with less.

During this highly engaging workshop you will understand the research behind Multipliers and the positive and profitable effect these Multipliers have on organizations – how they get more done with fewer resources and develop, attract, and retain talent, cultivating new ideas to drive organizational change and innovation. You will learn the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers and ways to maximize talent and leadership potential by recognizing the Multipliers and Diminishers in your teams. What could your campus accomplish with access to all the intelligence that sits inside it?
