Register for the Multiplier Workshop


    What kind of leader are you, a multiplier or diminisher, or an accidently diminisher?

    Diminishers include: 1) Empire builders who hoard and underutilize talent; 2) Tyrants who create anxiety and suppress thinking; 3) Know-it-alls who tell people what to do; 4) Decision makers who make isolated decisions; and 5) Micromanagers who take over, control.  What they get is less than half of people's capability!

    Multipliers include: 1) Talent magnets who attract and optimize talent; 2) Liberators who create intensity that requires best thinking; 3) Challengers who extend challenges; 4) Debate makers who debate before deciding; and 5) Investors who instill ownership and accountability. What they get is 2X capability from people!

    Accidental Diminisher includes three main types: Visionaries, Idea Guy, and Rescuers.  Each can lead with great intentions, but actually be reducing the efforts and expectations of those around them.

    This workshop is dedicated to developing social capital, one of the key change levers that Michael Fullan speaks about that we should use to lead in change efforts.  Charlotte Danielson recently lamented about the misuse of her effective teaching framework in the evaluation process, and wrote that it is professionals collaboration on learning effective strategies where the biggest changes take place.

    Participants will access their leadership style as multiplier, diminisher, or accidental diminisher and learn ways to strengthen their skills as a multiplier and reduce the tendencies to be a diminisher.

    COURSE FORMAT:  (Two Days)

    Day 1

    • Participants will complete a self-assessment to determine if they are a Multiplier, Diminisher, or Accidental Diminisher and learn strategies to increase their skills.
