In 1958, National Boss Day, celebrated on October 16th, was created to strengthen the bond between employers and employees.
Have you ever wondered how to best recognize a current or past boss that has truly inspired you to produce your best work or reach new heights in your career?
If so, you should consider nominating a current/past boss or anyone else who has inspired you during your career in The Wiseman Group’s Multiplier of the Year (MOY) contest. Nominations are being accepted from now until October 22nd.
Multipliers are leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them. When these leaders walk into a room, light bulbs go on, ideas flow and problems get solved.
These are the leaders who inspire the people with whom they work to stretch themselves and surpass expectations. These leaders use their smarts to make everyone around them smarter and more capable.
Hopefully all of us has have the experience of working for a Multiplier – this is your chance to show your appreciation!
To specifically recognize the contributions of government leaders, we have again included the Government/Military category.
The inaugural winner of this prestigious designation was Mark “Kaiser” Schmidt, Lieutenant Colonel, United States Air Force. Last year’s winner was Dr. Eric Sholes, Project Manager and Systems Engineer, United States Army.
Dr. Sholes was nominated because “he comes in every day and spends hour after hour to make everyone better.”
Nominating a leader is easy, simply visit our MOY nomination page and explain how they have demonstrated Multiplier behaviors. Don’t forget to select the Military/Government category.
You will also need to select which practice best describes their leadership style.
Talent Magnet: Attracts and optimizes talent at its highest point of contribution.
Liberator: Creates a climate of safety and ambition that both invites and demands people’s best thinking.
Challenger: Defines an opportunity that causes people to stretch.
Debate Maker: Drives sounds decisions through rigorous debate.
Investor: Delivers extraordinary results by instilling accountability.
Beginning October 23rd, we will select a shortlist of nominees who stand out as Multiplier leaders. Voting polls will then open and everyone will vote for their favorite leader. Finally, Liz Wiseman, author of the New York Times Bestseller Multipliers, will present the winners in each category with their trophy!
Please take a few minutes to give back to a leader who had a positive impact on your career.
It’s unfortunate that the work day doesn’t always leave enough room for appreciation. I’m glad this contest exists. It’s important to take the time and acknowledge those that change, shape and affect us in a positive way. Thanks for sharing!
