In this compelling, accessible and purpose-filled book bestselling business author Seth Godin shows how you have the potential to make a big difference-and make yourself indispensable in the process-wherever you are.
Why are some people easily outsourced, downsized, or freelanced into obscurity, while others have their pick of opportunities? In his most powerful book yet, Seth Godin argues that it's more essential than ever to become indispensable - to become a linchpin. Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations: they invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They love their work and pour their best selves into it and turn each day into a kind of art - and, in today's world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom.
Godin shows that the key to being indispensable is overcoming the fears that hold most of us back. If you have you ever found a shortcut that others missed, seen a new way to resolve a conflict, or made a connection with someone others couldn't reach, then you have what it takes to become indispensable. It's time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map.
This powerful book is all about you - your choices, your future and your potential to make a huge difference in whatever field you choose.
There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labour. Now there's a third team: the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen and create order out of chaos. Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organisations - they are indispensable. And in today's world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom.
