About the founder &
the force multiplier

Our co-founders Hallie Warner and Adam Hergenrother created The Founder & The Force Multiplier to help leaders and Force Multipliers (AKA: Executive Assistants, Chiefs of Staff) find the right strategic partner, enhance their communication, navigate change, grow companies and careers, and lead better together.

The Founder & The Force Multiplier’s book, coaching, and courses are designed from over 15 years of real-world leadership, business-building, and strategic partnership experience to empower working relationships and elevate companies and careers.

building businesses, Growing careers & achieving more together

When we wrote The Founder & The Force Multiplier: How Entrepreneurs and Executive Assistants Achieve More Together in February 2019, our focus was on the partnership between an entrepreneur and their right-hand employee (usually in the form of an Executive Assistant, Personal Assistant, or Chief of Staff).

What we’ve realized over time is that the principles that we live by and value extend far beyond the scrappy early days of a start-up, all the way to the C-Suite of Fortune 100 companies. An effective strategic partnership is a powerful thing.

Throughout this book, authors, Adam and Hallie, share what has worked for them, what they’ve learned along this journey, and some best practices that they recommend you implement immediately to get results. It is their hope that the lessons you learn here will help you find success and fulfillment in your business, your career, and your life as a whole. Without a doubt, together you will achieve more.
