Liz Wiseman can divide leaders into two groups: multipliers and diminishers. Multipliers will attract talent to them by their welcoming attitude and collaborative environment and encourage ideas and intelligence. Even though it can seem like receding into the background, Liz assures you that you don’t have to be small to let others flourish as well. By being a multiplier, everyone on the team gets to look good.
