IMPACT PLAYERS: How to Take the Lead, Play Bigger, and Multiply Your Impact

By Liz Wiseman

Why do some people operate at their full potential while others underutilize their abilities? To answer this question, Liz Wiseman and her research team spoke with 170 executives across 10 countries, surveyed 350 managers from various industries, and conducted detailed interviews with 25 high-impact contributors. They found that Impact Players exist at all levels and industries–they contribute more than 3x the value of a typical contributor and about 10x that of an under-contributor. This book explains why/how the most impactful players see and do things differently, with practical insights and tips for contributers, leaders and professionals in organizational or people development.
