Reviews

"Everyone's heard about legendary educators who turn struggling schools around. Is it the force of their personality? Sheer genius? Or does the secret of their success lie in their ability to unleash the genius in the people around them? The Multiplier Effect suggests that by changing the way you lead, you can amplify the intelligence, talent, and passion of your fellow teachers and together conquer the challenges today's schools face. This is sure to be an energizing book for teachers and administrators at all levels of education." -- Daniel Pink, Author of Drive and To Sell is Human

I urge you to read this book and let its fascinating ideas help you see that you, too, are a genius-and a genius maker." -- Ken Blanchard, Coauthor of The One Minute Manager (R) and Leading at a Higher Level

"The Multiplier concept is a powerful tool to develop and improve leaders both in business and across education, where we hear more about failure than we do about success.

"Dripping in rich storytelling and anecdotes, this book explores why our society, schools, and companies desperately need to embrace the power of Multipliers in order to unleash talent, allow others agency, and fully utilize dormant intelligence.
