Liz Wiseman is an articulate student of leadership who challenges us to make those around us smarter by helping them be the best them.

Too often we can seek to make others clones of us and extensions of our mission. If we can find out what they do well, and release them to do that, we can exponentially increase the effectiveness of our team.

Diminishers suck the life out of people by trying to get them to be someone they are not. Multipliers empower people by helping them be who they are in the context of a team. I know which I want to be - how about you?
