Why do some leaders amplify intelligence, while others drain it?
As part of our ongoing commitment to bring the latest in though leadership to our clients in the region, biz-ability hosted two Multipliers Breakfasts at the luxurious Magnolia Restaurant in the Al Qasr resort at Madinat Jumeirah. Groups of 20 Senior Executives were treated to a sumptuous breakfast, accompanied by an interactive workshop on the Multipliers concept.
It is a simple yet powerful idea; there is more intelligence inside your organization than meets the eye. There is latent knowledge, insight, and skill that is ripe and ready to be harvested and used. Leaders can be Multipliers who use their intelligence to amplify the intelligence of people around them.
The message was one of Scale; Organizations must grow the top line without a linear increase to the bottom line. The message of Multipliers, is how do we get more from the people ALREADY inside our organizations – more brainpower, more creativity, more discretionary effort. Multipliers don’t get a little more, they get vastly more. Growth can be funded by the underutilized resources inside your organization. This is how smart leaders SCALE their organizations, especially in times when they have to do more with less.
Why is this message relevant? More and more we are moving to a business model of distributed intelligence; businesses like Google, Facebook, Zynga and more are competing based on intelligent access.
CK Prahalad said, “the skill of the next century won’t be how much you know. It is how much of what other people know can you access.”
