The author, Liz, Wiseman contends that leaders fall into two distinct categories: Multipliers and Diminishers. Multipliers, those who liberate their employees to do their very best, invest in human capital and inspire excellence, are the exact opposite of Diminishers. Diminishers, in turn, are toxic, self-centered, and often know-it-alls, whose lack of managerial skills tend to tear down their employees. While many people land in the middle of this continuum, Wiseman creates an excellent framework for her theory. Anyone who reads this book will recognize the Multipliers and Diminishers in their lives.
