Multipliers Workshops

The Workshop

Get more done with fewer resources, develop talent, and cultivate new ideas to drive change and innovation.

In this highly engaging workshop your team will develop a deep understanding of the research behind Multipliers and illustrate the resoundingly positive and profitable effect these Multipliers 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. Your team will gain a solid understanding of the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers and develop skills for leading like a Multiplier.

The Idea

Are you a genius or a genius maker? 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 flow 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. What could your organization accomplish with access to all the intelligence that sits inside it?

"As the Vice President of Human Resources for Roche Diagnostics, I had the pleasure of working with Elise on a recent project in which she led a group of our senior leaders through a certification process to become facilitators of the Multiplier content. The certification process was unlike anything we've done before and Elise was with us every step of the way as we went through our own journey to not only deliver content effectively, but more importantly, begin to demonstrate the Multiplier behaviors on a consistent basis. Through our partnership with Elise and the Wiseman Group, we are excited to use the Multipliers concept as a way to invest in and strengthen all of our leaders at Roche."
