The Multiplier Effect

When she first bumped into the Multiplier Effect, Liz Wiseman was working in Oracle. She was quick to notice that, while all of the leaders she worked with were brilliant individuals, some of them were much better than others at bringing out the best in everyone around them. She dubbed them Multipliers and went on trying to figure out what made them so effective as leaders and so different from the others. Her pursuit took her outside the borders of Oracle to many other companies such as McKinsey&Co, Microsoft, GE and Infosys. Here's the story she uncovered.

The Multiplier Story

Smart people are promoted in positions of leadership based on their demonstrated intelligence. Oftentimes they continue to rely on that intelligence to drive the success of their teams and organizations. This makes sense.

The problem with this approach is that it unwittingly drains the intelligence of those around them, causing others to shrink or diminish. The members of their teams feel very much like Constantin Brancusi who, when asked by Auguste Rodin why he decided to leave his team, answered: "Nothing grows under the shadow of big trees." We call such leaders Accidental Diminishers since the unintended impact of their leadership approach is to diminish the collective intelligence of their team.

Liz noticed however that some leaders became aware that a better, more productive use of their intelligence was to create a space where their team members can contribute with and develop their own intelligence. They became masters at the human resources equivalent of what CFOs call operational leverage: the ability to do increasingly more with the existing resources. After all, isn't this the fundamental demand from leaders in all organizations nowadays?

The Multiplier Workshop

What's more is that she discovered that all these leaders, across multiple organizations and geographies, consistently use the same 6 skills that allow them to get the best out of their teams. Liz went on to publish her findings in a Harvard Business Review article and afterwards in two Amazon best-selling books: Multipliers and The Multiplier Effect. Then she decided to build a leadership development program to help more leaders develop the 6 Multiplier skills.
