Product description

Review

“If you’re trying to navigate the new world of work, this book is your GPS. With solid research and sparkling examples, Wiseman shows how to do the things they don’t teach us in school—tackling ambiguous problems, surmounting unforeseen obstacles, hitting moving targets, and traveling beyond the boundaries of your job description to make a real contribution.” — Daniel H. Pink, number one New York Times bestselling author of When, Drive, and To Sell is Human

“If you want to stand out early in your career, this book is required reading. Liz Wiseman highlights the practical, often surprising habits that will help you reach your potential and make your mark.” — Adam Grant, number one New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

Impact Players will teach you how to have empathy for your boss without kissing up, how to step up and take charge even when you don’t have formal authority, and when to step back and follow, so you can make big things happen for your team and your career.” — Kim Scott, author of Radical Candor and Just Work

“Liz Wiseman has done it again. Impact Players is an engaging and practical guide to how anyone can be more effective at work. In a refreshing departure from the relentless emphasis on leadership that dominates the field, Wiseman digs into the important question of how people make themselves valuable and how they find ways to make an impact when and where it matters most.” — Amy C. Edmondson, professor, Harvard Business School, and author of The Fearless Organization

“In building innovative Silicon Valley companies and running US economic diplomacy, I’ve learned that Impact Players are the essential ingredient for growing transformative organizations. And Liz Wiseman’s book gives you the recipe. Impact Players will help you develop the desperately needed next generation of bold, principled, transformational leaders to address our challenges and make sure the world of tomorrow is a better world for all.” — Keith Krach, former United States undersecretary of state, chairman and CEO of DocuSign and Ariba

"Being busy? Easy. Having an impact and making a difference? Well, that’s hard, really hard. Liz Wiseman, in her typically brilliantly, generous, and rigorous way, shows how any of us can change what we do so we too can be an Impact Player. This book is every bit as important and as good as Multipliers. And that book changed the working world.” — Michael Bungay Stanier, author of The Coaching Habit

Impact Players is a gold mine! It is filled with powerful insights and actionable recommendations on how to move beyond being a competent employee to being a truly impactful team player. This should be required reading for individual contributors and leaders alike.” — Tina Seelig, professor and executive director, Knight-Hennessy Scholars, Stanford University

“As we slowly get through the challenges of the global pandemic, we cannot declare victory and go back to normal. We must look further forward to face a future of unprecedented adversity and opportunity. We need more leaders with the right mindset and skills to tackle our biggest and most important challenges—like the climate crisis or technological disruption of jobs, work, industries, and institutions. The world needs fewer people accepting the status quo and more Impact Players who are actively working to create the future they see is possible. This book is a playbook that will help individuals work at a higher level, inspire teams to do great things, and enable organizations to create a culture that fosters growth and to become high-impact organizations.” — Rob Nail, associate founder and former CEO, Singularity University

“Every colleague, teammate, and contributor wants to be the ‘go to,’ high-performing, high-contributing player. Some might call them indispensable. Well, now you have the practical mindsets, strategies, and tools to achieve those goals. It doesn’t take much, but it does take leaders and colleagues who are able to apply simple techniques to extract that extra engagement sitting just below the surface. Liz is a master, and every CHRO/CPO should read this book. If you’re looking to take your organization and the amazing colleagues you have to another level of contribution, this is the guide to help you get them there!” — Eric Hutcherson, chief people and inclusion of?cer, Universal Music Group

"As with all of Wiseman’s books, this is supremely well-researched, structured and filled with relatable stories. If you want to develop the Impact Player mindset and learn their specific practices, or want to have more Impact Players on your team, this book is gold." — Forbes

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book to become the impact player in your niche
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on January 5, 2023
Some think you become great on the big stage under the bright lights but the light only reveals the work you did in the dark.

This book reveals the secret of how to become an impact player in your organization as most people struggle and get stuck going through the motions.We mostly like to go to organizations where we get applause or appreciation from people or leaders, but at the same time we forget that we lose touch with reality and avoid situations that expose our weaknesses but those who have courage and face the reality become impact player. The author has neatly shared all the recipes in a very easy to understand language.

In the book Author describes the types of challenges that are increasingly being faced in modern organisations, unclear problems, unclear roles, unclear constraints, rising targets and incredible demands and how we can overcome these difficulties to become impact players.

🍁𝗔𝘂𝘁𝗵𝗼𝗿'𝘀 𝗠𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗮𝗴𝗲🍁

Based on a study of 170 top professionals, Wiseman identifies the mindsets that prevent otherwise smart, capable people from living up to their full potential, and the five practices that differentiate Impact Players:

While others do their job, Impact Players figure out the real job to be done.
• While others wait for direction, Impact Players step up and lead.
Players are learning and adapting to change.
• While others add to the load, Impact Players make heavy demands feel lighter.

Wiseman makes clear that these practices-and the right mindset-can help any employee contribute their best and shows leaders how they can raise the level of play for everyone on the team.

🍁𝗠𝘆 𝗩𝗶𝗲𝘄🍁
It's a must read for today's leaders, managers, entrepreneurs and it's also a guide for parents, teachers and workplace advisers.
