Publisher's Summary

A revised and updated edition of the acclaimed Wall Street Journal best seller that explores why some leaders drain capability and intelligence from their teams while others amplify it to produce better results.
We've all had experiences with two dramatically different types of leaders. The first type drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them and always need to be the smartest people in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy sappers, 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, lightbulbs 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. And the world needs more of them - especially now, when leaders are expected to do more with less.
In this engaging and highly practical book, leadership expert Liz Wiseman explores these two leadership styles, persuasively showing how Multipliers can have a resoundingly positive and profitable effect on organizations - getting more done with fewer resources, developing and attracting talent, and cultivating new ideas and energy to drive organizational change and innovation.
In analyzing data from more than 150 leaders, Wiseman has identified five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers. These five disciplines are not based on innate talent; indeed, they are skills and practices that everyone can learn to use - even lifelong and recalcitrant Diminishers. Lively real-world case studies and practical tips and techniques bring to life each of these principles, showing you how to become a Multiplier, too, whether you are a new or an experienced manager. This revered classic has been updated with new examples of Multipliers as well as two new chapters - one on accidental Diminishers and one on how to deal with Diminishers.
Just imagine what you could accomplish if you could harness all the energy and intelligence around you. Multipliers will show you how.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

It's OK. Good insight but WAY too drawn out.

What was most disappointing about Liz Wiseman and Stephen Covey - foreword ’s story?

The findings were interesting but it was too long. Felt like the content was stretched for the purpose of publishing. This would have sufficed as an HBR article.

One of the top 5 business books I've ever read...

Well researched, well written, insightful and engaging. One of the few books I'll read twice.

One of the best books on leadership I've read

I come back to this book time after time and now have it in both book and audio. It's compelling and it continually challenges me, no matter how many times I revisit it. I have used many of the exercises for both my team and myself to become better leaders and I would highly recommended it!
