Synopsis

Why are some leaders able to double their team's effectiveness, while others seem to drain the energy right out of the room?

In this engaging and highly practical book, leadership expert Liz Wiseman, leadership coach Elise Foster, and veteran principal Lois Allen team up to offer compelling research showing the overwhelmingly positive and exponential effect on schools - getting more done without increasing the number of teachers and resources.

Taking a deep dive with more than 100 of education's best leaders, the authors explore the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers and how these leaders attract and develop talent, as well as harness new ideas and energy to drive educational innovation. These five disciplines are not based on innate talent; indeed they are skills that every educator can learn to use - even when steeped in lifelong Diminisher settings. By practicing these disciplines, learders learn how to

- Attract top teachers to their school

- Create an intense environment that demands people's best thinking

- Drive sound decisions by constructing debate and decision-making forums

- Give their team a sense of ownership for responsibilities and results
