    Join the conversation as we discuss Liz Wiseman's, "Multipliers: How the best leaders make everyone smarter." This book club will be led by Elise Foster.

    About the book

    “The fundamental role of leaders is no longer knowing and directing, but rather asking and listening—unleashing the capability of everyone around you. There are Diminishersand Multipliers, and it is important to understand the significant effect these types of leaders have on their employees and organizations. Diminishersmake people question their own intelligence and capability. Problems don’t get solved and projects don’t move forward, which becomes costly for an organization in more ways than one. Multipliers make people feel smarter and more capable. Employees feel inspired to come up with creative solutions to problems and move business forward. Multipliers create growth. So what are Multipliers doing to inspire all this creative mojo, and what are Diminishersdoing to kill it?”

    Join the conversation as we discuss Adam Grant's, "Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World." This book club will be led by Kate Gerasimova.

    About the book

    Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn’t even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo.
