Nate’s Notes 74: Nate Meikle | The Amplification Paradox: Empowering Others while Empowering Ourselves

By June 5, 2023No Comments

Nate Meikle

Professor at the University of Kansas

As I researched amplification I was amazed over and over again at how robust the effect was. Whether people amplified low-status or high-status people, good ideas or bad ideas, men or women, promotive voice or prohibitive voice, they increased their own status and the status of others.

Amplifying others is easy. All we have to do is recognize others’ contributions and give them credit for their contributions.

Amplification can help others. And it can help us. I hope you will look to amplify others.

It’s a simple idea. Please take it seriously.
