Is your organization’s leader a Multiplier or a Diminisher? In this CW Radio podcast interview, leadership expert and IABC World Conference speaker Liz Wiseman talks about the danger of the Diminisher mind-set in leaders. When highly intelligent, experienced leaders think they have all the answers, they can sometimes quash the ideas and contributions of those around them, actually reducing the company’s capacity for innovation. She advocates that instead leaders adopt a “rookie” mentality, asking deep questions and working from a place of not knowing all the answers. In this way, leaders can become what she’s termed Multipliers, leaders who “amplify the intelligence of those around them,” rather than drain it.
