Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter by Liz Wiseman

Multipliers (2010) examines the difference between good leaders, known as Multipliers, who can join any team and make it flourish, and bad leaders, known as Diminishers, who can drain any team of its energy and drive. Author Liz Wiseman explains how to recognize the different types of Multipliers and Diminishers, while comparing the skills you should strive to develop with the ones you should avoid at all cost.

  • Leaders and managers looking to get the best from their team
  • Workers concerned about their managers’ leadership practices
