I finished reading Impact Players by Liz Wiseman a few days ago, and I highly recommend it.
The book outlines the best employees’ characteristics, approaches, and tactics based on research conducted with managers. The result is a roadmap for understanding precisely what it takes to be an impact player and what it takes to develop impact players on your team.
(Hint: it’s not about “going it alone”, putting in more hours, or your level of assertiveness)
Accompanying tools and resources (checklists, assessments, etc.) take the research and turn it into actionable recommendations and make this book a must-read. There are important lessons and insights in this book for all of us. Check it out!
