When you become a Multiplier, your whole team succeeds!

Why are some leaders able to double their team’s effectiveness, while others seem to drain the energy right out of the room? Using insights gained from more than 100 interviews with school leaders, The Multiplier Effect pinpoints the five disciplines that define how Multipliers bring out the best across their schools. By practicing these disciplines, you’ll learn how to

  • Attract top teachers to your school
  • Create an intense environment that demands people’s best thinking
  • Drive sound decisions by constructing debate and decision-making forums
  • Give your team a sense of ownership for responsibilities and results

As an educator, you already inspire students to rise to challenges, trust their own smarts, and believe in their own success. As a Multiplier, you’ll do the same for your colleagues—and provide staff and students the opportunity to achieve at unprecedented levels.

“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 school 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

“A fascinating book that shows how mindsets shape the way people lead. This book will forever change the way we think about leadership in our schools and the mindsets we need to tackle our biggest educational challenges.”
—Carol Dweck, Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology, Stanford University
Author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
