"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
"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

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

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
"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
