Do you make those around you smarter?
We’ve all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders.
The first type, Diminishers, drains intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them and always needs to be the smartest person in the room.
The second type, Multipliers, are the 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.
The world needs more Multipliers, especially now, when leaders are expected to do more with less.
