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 needs to be the smartest
person 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, light
bulbs go oﬀ over people’s heads; ideas ﬂ ow and problems get solved. These are the leaders who
inspire employees to stretch themselves and get more from other people. These are the Multipliers.
And the world needs more of them, especially now when leaders are expected to do more with less.
In this highly engaging talk, Liz Wiseman will share the research behind Multipliers and illustrate the
resoundingly positive and proﬁtable eﬀect these Multi pliers have on organizations – how they get more done with fewer resources, develop and attract talent, and cultivate new ideas and energy to drive organizational change and innovation. She’ll introduce the ﬁve disciplines that distinguish
Multi pliers from Diminishers and provide practice tips for leading like a Multiplier. What could your organization accomplish with
access to all the intelligence that sits inside it?
