If you’re familiar with our blog and newsletter, you’ll have heard Liz Wiseman’s name come up over and over. Adam and I first came across Liz through her book Multipliers which is a cracker. She has shared her 5 sec tip to multiplier leadership and we learned a tonne at her Multiplier Leadership Summit in San Francisco with 16 other attendees from businesses such as Nike, Twitter and Salesforce.com.
Liz has been named in the global Top 10 Leadership thinkers, so it was awesome to have her on this podcast to talk about her new book: Rookie Smarts – Why Learning Beats Knowing In The New Game Of Work. The book is all about how a Rookie Smarts mindset is crucial to amplifying your learning and why it is so powerful when it comes to outperforming experience.
