Most of us know a bad boss when we see one, but surprisingly few of us have ever worked with or truly experienced a great boss. The book Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter asserts that there are two types of leaders: those who diminish the strengths of their team and deplete energy and motivation, and those who multiply them and can make a good employee twice or even 100 times better than they would be on their own.
This book and its concepts are the inspiration for our Chairman’s Lunch program, coming up on Feb. 20. Our speaker, Elise Foster, is a Master Practitioner for The Wiseman Group and develops multiplier skills in leaders across the country to help them strengthen the contributions of their teams. Driving change in our community requires becoming a region of multipliers. Take a look at what several local leaders have to say about the Multipliers book, then register to attend the Chairman’s Lunch event to be part of the discussion.
