Guest: Liz Wiseman, President of The Wiseman Group and author of best-sellers “Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter” and “Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing in the New Game of Work” Liz Wiseman tells us how we can be genius-makers like, Magic Johnson. “He has been an incredible businessman,” says Wiseman. She tells of his experience in high school with a coach who encouraged him to take as many shots as he could. “So he does and he scores a lot of points and the team wins every game. The team loves it, the coach loves it. But he recounts an experience walking out to his car, watching the faces of the parents of the other players and he made a decision that he would use his God-given talent to make everyone else a better player." "His ability to raise the level of play around him, captures the way it means to be a multiplier. He played the role of genius-maker,” says Wiseman.
