MULTIPLIERS: HOW THE BEST LEADERS MAKE EVERYONE SMARTER
BY LIZ WISEMAN > JUNE 2010
Some leaders make everyone smarter and multiply the effectiveness of their teams while others diminish the talent and intelligence of those around them. There are five critical capacities that separate one type of leader from the other, and this book holds up an unforgiving mirror for you to see exactly what areas you need to work on. Once you know the characteristics of multipliers and diminishers, you’ll recognize them everywhere.

AN EVERYONE CULTURE: BECOMING A DELIBERATELY DEVELOPMENTAL ORGANIZATION
BY ROBERT KEGAN AND LISA LASKOW LAHEY > MARCH 2016
Ready to play in the big leagues? This book by two education researchers from Harvard is a profile of what are probably the three most advanced corporate cultures in America (and no, you probably haven’t heard of them). What it takes to grow into the role of leader in those cultures represents a humblingly high bar for vulnerability and growth that transcends the personal/professional divide. Could it be that workplaces can become the ultimate forum to help people become greater than they think possible? Read this book to find out.
Nathan Havey is the founder and CEO of Thrive Consulting Group, a company that exists to make conscious business the new business as usual. Thrive’s signature offering is The Workshop on Conscious Business.
Businesses that pursue a clear purpose beyond profit, strive to create value for all their stakeholders (not just shareholders), and insist on developing leaders that create a culture of care and safety rather than control and fear outperform their peers by wide margins. The Workshop on Conscious Business leverages these ideas to help business leaders identify opportunities for improvement in the personal, social, and financial results they create. This is more than corporate social responsibility, it is more than “giving back”. This is proactively leveraging the organizing force of capitalism to solve humanity’s challenges.
Havey is a sought-after speaker on conscious business from audiences across the country. Havey serves on the advisory board to Conscious Company Magazine.
