How the Best Leaders Ignite Everyone’s Intelligence
Why Do Some Leaders Drain Intelligence While Others Amplify It?
We have all experienced two dramatically different types of leaders: The first drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them. The second makes light bulbs go off over people’s heads—ideas flow and problems get solved.
The Diminisher is a leader who squashes innovation, energy, and ideas by thinking they are the smartest person in the room. They feel the need to put their mark on everything. These types of leaders extract less than 50% of their team’s intelligence. Under their diminisher tendencies, growth suffers, team members quit, and organizations scramble.
The Multiplier is a leader who grows intelligence by engaging and amplifying it. They don’t need the credit, and they don’t need to be the smartest in the room. These type of leaders extract 2x the team’s intelligence than that of a diminisher. Under their multiplier strengths, team efforts increase, revenue grows, and organizations thrive.
