No More Autographed Copies Available - right now

Are you a genius or a genius maker?

As Sailors, we’ve all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders - whether on the deckplates, in the Goatlocker or in the Wardroom. The first type of leader drains intelligence, energy, and capability from the Sailor around them and always needs to be the smartest person in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment. 

On the other side of the spectrum are those Navy leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the Sailors around them. When these Navy leaders walk into a room, light bulbs go off over Sailors’s heads; ideas flow and problems get solved. These are the Navy leaders who inspire Sailors to stretch themselves to deliver results that surpass expectations. 

These are the Multipliers. And the Navy needs more of them, especially now when leaders are expected to do more with less. 

In Liz Wiseman's book, multiplers - HOW THE BEST LEADERS MAKE EVERYONE SMARTER, she and Greg McKeown studied intelligence and how Multipliers can have a resoundingly positive and profitable effect on organizations—getting more done with fewer resources, developing and attracting talent, and cultivating new ideas and energy to drive organizational change and innovation.

I have 10 (zero) autographed copies available.  If you are a Sailor who would like to have a copy, send me  an e-mail and I will get you a copy of your own.  By the end of the day, all 10 copies have been claimed.  I will get some more and we can do this again.
