Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week, I have Liz Wiseman on the podcast. Liz is the author of New York Times bestseller Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, The Multiplier Effect: Tapping the Genius Inside Our Schools, and Wall Street Journal bestseller Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing in the New Game of Work. Liz is also the CEO of The Wiseman Group, a leadership research and development firm and in 2017 she was #35 on the Thinkers50 list.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone looking to improve their leadership skills and build better teams.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE…
There are leaders who are “Diminishers,” while others are “Mulitpliers”. These ‘Diminishers’ tend to get less than half of people's intelligence or capability; whereas, these ‘Multipliers’ get all of it.
But that’s not all, there are also “Accidental Diminishers” - these are really well-meaning people trying to be good bosses but yet having a diminishing effect on those around them.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Being aware of the kind of leader you are will help you improve the way you communicate, manage and inspire those around you to do their best work.
A PIECE OF ADVICE FOR LEADERS…
Allow diverse styles of thinking and personalities the space to thrive. Pay attention to who is quiet and who has an overpowering personality. Give those who need time to think, and process information the opportunity to speak as those who are quick on their feet. It’s the multiple styles of contributing and leading that creates a great team, innovative ideas, and a healthy work environment.
