Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

How to drive your career and create a remarkable future

by Seth Godin

  • Why read?

    As the world of business and technology changes around us, and ‘cogs in a machine’ jobs are being automated more and more, how do we remain relevant as individuals? Linchpin digs deep into uncomfortable territory, but ultimately provides a brightly valuable perspective on work and career. Do you want to be replaceable? Or do you want to be a linchpin? Linchpin is about becoming indispensable at work and breaking out of the scape of following the instruction manual. This is an important read for anyone, and just as relevant for ‘right now’ as ‘the future’.
