321. How to Take the Lead, Play Bigger, and Multiply Your Impact

Oct 18, 2021 | 0 comments

Every organization has it’s impact players – those indispensable team members that you can count on when the stakes are high. And while others do their job, impact players find the job to be done. Whether they’re center stage or behind the scenes, leaders know who these top players are… and they want more of them on their team.

While their impact is obvious, it’s not always as clear what makes these impact players different from their peers. How do you stack your team with people who can make the most impact when you don’t have a proven way of identifying them?

Liz Wiseman invested her career in studying leadership, and, as she did, she became curious about the teams that we lead. She studied top contributors to begin identifying what they are doing differently, and how their mindset could potentially be available to everyone else who wants to contribute at that high level.
