- High-impact contributors: These people are doing work of exceptional value and impact.
- Typical contributors: These are smart and talented people who are doing solid work.
- Under-contributors: These are smart and talented people who are playing below their ability.
The difference between the impact players and the contributors is their mode of thinking. It’s learnable and coachable, thus available to everyone. A leader can instill the impact player mindset in an entire team.
