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.

    "Much needed insight into leadership and management"

    This book is a necessity for anyone in leadership or management to understand how to motivate your people, lead a team, build your organization and have each and every person feel like they are contributing their best work. There is such a lack of good management in the professional field and this book offers solutions to problems that most organizations face. Timely, needed and valuable information.

    "Must Listen, digest and use"

    I listened to the first Multipliers book and shared it with friends. I saw the direct use of it in a business owner with whom I shared. For me this version hit home even more directly. Easily it may have been the second listen to certain principles or a different place in life. For anyone in any position, working or family will benefit whether you have listened to the first or this is your first. in fact listen as many times as it takes to practice and use. More often than not, as life changes, so does the relevance of different chapters. I found the new chapter about managing diminishers to be a perfect lesson for coaching other friends and family.

    "Incredible Resource for Leaders"

    This is an incredible book to read/listen to if you're looking at building an effective team, developing your leadership style, trying to work with a difficult leader, etc.

    Liz Wiseman (author) reads the book herself and I think that only increases the delivery of the content.

    I can't profess to be the type who reads 100 books a year; I probably manage 25-35, but this book has been the best book I've read in this past year.

    "Great addition to the mind"

    This is another great leadership book to expand the mind. It is a book that helps the reader bring together a number of concepts into one holistic picture.

    Will be a book I read again and again.

    "Amazing read! A must have for anyone in business"
    What did you love best about Multipliers, Revised and Updated?

    The content is current, easy to digest and even easier to implement


    What does Liz Wiseman and John Meagher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This audible has an easy flow and by hearing the authors read it to me, I feel as if I am face to face or learning in their classroom.


    Any additional comments?

    What an inspirational book. I have already begun to change the way I lead my team. It has opened me up to limitless opportunities. There are many great lessons to be learned here and I felt as though the author was holding my hand and helping me to make effective change every step of the way.
