Many people spend years working themselves into the ground, only to be passed over for the promotions, recognition, and pay raises they deserve. Today, there is a new set of unwritten rules for getting ahead, and they are all about making an impact. In The Impact Employee, Sander and Mechele Flaum expose what many people have taken years to learn: Success depends on the “impact dynamic.”

Defined as projects that make a resounding difference in an organization, with the added benefit of impressing key stakeholders, the impact dynamic is what separates over-deliverers from average workers. Drawing on their many years in business in a variety of high-level roles, the Flaums teach readers exactly what they need to know in today’s job market: how to identify opportunities and successfully lead projects that will propel their careers.
