Some books are filled with multiple key thoughts and concepts — many important and useful teachings and concepts and ideas. Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter by Liz Wiseman (with Greg McKeown) is one such book. The book is good. The over-all concept is great. And the implications just keep coming.
A Multiplier is a leader who actually makes people smarter, more effective. A Diminsher is a person in a leadership position, but is not a true leader at all. In fact, a Diminisher is the opposite of a leader. Such a person shrinks the person’s, and the organization’s, capacity.
Bob Morris and I have both posted about ideas in, or prompted by, this book, in the following posts:

Book Review: Multipliers.
But I just discovered the book’s trailer on youtube. (No, I have never seen a trailer for a book before. Cool!). It is quite creative, and absolutely worth a look. In fact, the trailer is almost as good as the book! So – take a look.
