Identifying The Accidental Diminisher with Liz Wiseman

The Melting Pot with Dominic Monkhouse
Episode artwork
Read more

Do you drain your team or engage them? Are you wondering how to make your leadership team even greater? You need to listen to Liz Wiseman, author of New York Times bestseller Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter.  

Liz is a researcher, executive advisor and author, writing Multipliers over 10 years ago. She’s recently updated it, although its core ideas still very much apply today. 

In it, she identifies two types of leaders - multipliers and diminishers. The multipliers get twice the output from their teams than the diminishers do. So you might be thinking, then why don’t we all strive to be multipliers? Because, Liz says, most of the behaviours exhibited by diminishers are completely accidental - only 20% of diminisher behaviours are deliberate.

“About two thirds of diminishing behaviour that we see is what we would call accidental diminisher behaviour, meaning it's done with the best of intentions.”

In this episode Dom chats to Liz about what these diminisher behaviours are - maybe you’ll recognise yourself in some of her descriptions. So if you think you could be holding your team back accidentally, preventing productivity and the only thing standing between your team and greatness is an awareness and desire to do things differently, then this fantastic conversation is not to be missed. 

On today’s podcast:

  • How teaching programming led her to becoming a researcher
  • Not every smart person creates a smart team
  • The limitations of diminisher leadership
  • The behaviours of a diminisher
  • Why perfectionists are the bottlenecks

Multipliers (2010) invites you to explore the two styles of leadership and question which one you want to be.

Author Liz Wiseman posits that there are two types of leaders: Multipliers and Diminishers. Where Multipliers encourage those around them to grow, Diminishers inhibit growth through setting negative examples and leaching motivation from the team. Wiseman thus explains how to unpack each leadership style, identify which type of leader you are, and what steps you can take if you want to become a Multiplier.

Finding The Right Fit with Liz Wiseman

The Journey
Episode artwork
Read more

“We are at our happiest when we have a job that's a size too big... I like to think of it as the way you would shop for shoes for toddlers—always a little bit bigger.”

When you picture an entry-level job for a recent college grad, what do you see?

Maybe an intern making coffee or filing an endless stream of paperwork? An assistant doing repetitive computer tasks and taking office calls. On a good day, maybe this intern or assistant has an opportunity to join a team meeting or chime in on small business decisions.

Sounds like a fairly relaxed, even boring, entry into the world of work - and it’s an entry most of us are familiar with. But this ‘pay your dues, put in the time, and slowly earn your way up the corporate ladder’ mindset isn’t for everyone… and it certainly wasn’t the path for Liz Wiseman.

Liz is the founder and CEO of the management research company, The Wiseman Group.

But long before she founded her namesake firm, Liz got her start as a technical trainer with Oracle, which was then just a medium-sized startup.

That experience taught her a valuable lesson about why the ‘perfect fit,’ may not always be the ‘right fit.’

How to Activate the Genius of Others with Liz Wiseman

Insight Out

Read more

Today’s guest is Liz Wiseman, author of New York Times bestseller Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, The Multiplier Effect: Tapping the Genius Inside Our Schools, and Wall Street Journal bestseller Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing in the New Game of Work. Liz has conducted significant research in the field of leadership and collective intelligence and writes for Harvard Business Review, Fortune, and a variety of other business and leadership journals. A former executive at Oracle Corporation, over the course of 17 years, Liz was the Vice President of Oracle University and global leader for Human Resource Development. Her management research and executive development firm The Wiseman Group is focused on developing leaders around the globe who can take on the world's toughest challenges. Her client list includes Apple, Disney, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter.  As you will see in this show, I met Liz when she spoke at Tesla and it resulted in one of the most memorable and emotional professional experiences in my life.  On the show, we dive into the concepts of Multipliers and Rookie Smarts and she tells personal insight stories that have helped make her the person she is today.  She explains the interesting reason why she decided to leave Oracle, and how that planted the seed for one of her books. We discuss her insights as a mother of 4 and a busy professional, and how her world was changed when she realized the management skill she used at work is the exact same skillset she used at home.  She also shares how and why she created labels in her books to help provide a framework and language to discuss what she calls the “undiscussable” - A multiplier is a genius maker and helps to activate everyone around them to be their best by spending their energy on extracting and extending the genius of others.  A diminisher does the exact opposite, by restricting others and holding them back from showing their what she calls “native genius”. We will discuss this in detail, including giving an example of the “accidental diminisher” - someone who has positive intentions but inadvertently diminishes those around them.  She also gives some sage advice for parents on how to balance life and family.  I’m beyond thrilled to release today’s show and can thank Liz enough for being my guest so please enjoy this episode of Insight Out!
