Where do you fall on your organization's performance spectrum?
Unstoppable is performance-enhancing manual for those who are ready to change the world. Regardless of talent or skill set, there are four types of people in every organization: Undertakers, Caretakers, Play Makers, and Game Changers—but value is definitely not equal across the board. Game changers move things forward with relentless energy, effort, attitude, and excellence. They elevate those around them, inspire exceptional performance, and drive their organization to the top. This book is designed to help you rise to the challenge and become the Game Changer your organization needs. Candid insights from dozens of coaches, managers, CEOs, journalists, entrepreneurs, and other elite performers reveal the qualities that make some people stand out, and the underlying theme is mindset.
While talent is a great head start, it is merely potential. Undeveloped and erratically-wielded talent holds little value for an organization. The key to high performance is an intentionally cultivated mindset of success, backed by the bold action it takes to make things happen every day. This book delves deep into the elite performance paradigm to help you work at the highest levels.
- Learn what separates the playmakers from the game changers
- Step up your performance with a simple five-step process
- Transform your thinking and develop an unstoppable toughness
- Be the best at what you do, and elevate your entire organization
The performance spectrum is not about classifying your coworkers; it's about self-assessment, self-reflection, and self-improvement. Everyone has star quality, even if it is buried deep inside. Unstoppable helps you uncover your potential, and upgrade your performance to become the best.

From the Inside Flap
When a person goes into the business world with a goal of achieving some definition of success, he or she focuses on continuously developing their skills, broadening and updating their knowledge, and mining their talent to further their experience. Many people develop an impressive mastery of their chosen profession, and somewhere along the way, they pick up bad habits and end up being the toxic team member who sets everyone back and possibly impacts the company bottom line. On the flip side, no matter where you are in your career, you can be a game changer at your organization with the Unstoppable mindset.
This immediately useful guidebook from the founder of Dave Anderson's LearnToLead categorizes every workforce into four mindset categories—undertakers, caretakers, playmakers, and game changers. The behaviors people in these mindset categories present directly enhance or diminish whatever skills, knowledge, talent, and experience they bring to the table. Between these covers lies both a clear mirror to honestly reveal where your head is as well as sage advice on the important choices you need to make in order to become the unyielding, constantly striving game changer.
Written for your everyday real world, the inspiring framework illustrates its straightforward explanations with dozens of personal accounts from leaders across numerous industries, including business, media, sports, and more. In vivid and informative detail, they share the tangible actions they see directly related to a team member's habitual choices influencing performance on their teams. Once you begin transforming into a more productive, magnetic version of yourself, you'll need to continually hone your abilities like game changers do, and there's plenty of recommended apps, online resources, and seminars to satiate your appetite.
With this powerful guidebook at your fingertips, you'll learn that:
- Lacking mental toughness is not an excuse anymore—understand and implement the key to shaking off brain fatigue
- Starting out strong and fading away isn't an option—customize your own daily routine for developing a disciplined mindset
- Working conditions don't anchor achievement—even undertakers can't stop you when you make the moves that put you in the zone
Whether you're starting your first job or need a refreshed perspective on your career, Unstoppable puts you in the best frame of mind to be extraordinary.
