Model from The Multiplier Effect: Tapping the Genius inside our Schools – Liz Wiseman, Elise Foster and Lois Allen

I really like the above conceptualization of leadership styles and Liz Wiseman, the co-author of The Multiplier Effect: Tapping the Genius Inside Our Schools, talks about the empowering effect of having leaders who are ‘multipliers’ in terms of encouraging emergent leadership or ‘leadership at the rockface’ where you honour the knowledge, skills and ideas of the members of the team. Instead of having staff afraid to make a mistake or step outside the box, we should foster an environment where it is cool to take risks! Check out Liz’ blog called ‘Finding Common Ground’.
