According to Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, leaders can be broken down into two categories: diminishers, who seem to drain capability and intelligence from their teams, and multipliers, who make those around them feel motivated and able to tackle challenges. “Diminishers hire intelligent people but they don’t give them permission to think. Multipliers think people are smart and they will figure it out on their own.”
“Multipliers create an atmosphere of innovation, productivity, and combined intelligence. In studies, multiplier executive leaders got two times as much productivity from their employees than diminisher leaders,” she said. “I thank you all for being multipliers.”
Noting that she will retire at the end of the year, Rich said that attending these events “has been the best part of my career. There is no better place than Penn Medicine.”
