Magnify the power of teams. Increase the impact of organizations. Turn up the volume on positive change.

If you believe that human talent matters, learn how to activate and unlock true talent.

Explore concepts from Wall Street Journal bestselling book, Amplifiers, on how to empower employee effectiveness. Author Tom Finegan, CEO and Co-Founder of Clarkston Consulting, delves into the idea of amplifier individuals who play a crucial role in driving change in organizations.

So, what is an amplifier? Amplifiers aren’t titled executives; they are those key individuals that are able to execute the vision of the business with a unique blend of true leadership and strong followership. In this balance, amplifiers are able to not only grow their own careers, they’re able to truly magnify the impact that their teams, peers, mentors, and leaders have on the business.

Amplifiers Leadership Training teaches concepts from the book of how to identify, develop, and activate true talent. Using his applied experience and leadership philosophy, Finegan will dive into discussions on the intersection of great leadership and great followership and how he has seen this combination have a transformative effect.

How can good companies/leaders become great ones?

To develop a positive organizational change, companies should be looking at talent development differently — through the lens of an amplifier. A leader is not a leader if there are not followers present. So, spending time thinking about the interplay of leaders and followers is critical for leadership success.

The impact of amplifiers goes beyond a few interactions on a team; it affects the entire corporate performance and the career satisfaction of each individual.

While some people are naturally amplifiers, we have found that corporate outcomes can be significantly enhanced by intentionally developing and nurturing amplifier styles, motives, and traits. Our trainings provide a path for employees at all levels to develop critical leadership skills and for organizations to scout and nurture true amplifiers.
