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 areWhy 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'sessential 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 freedomGodin 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 I love the convenience of audio books but on this occasion I would say buy the print copy and read it instead The reason for this is that the audio version of Linchpin Are you indispensible is read without any great emphasis except right at the beginning when told you are a genius So for the length of two CDs you listen to material that is actually uite incisive but the audio just washes over you with the result that at the end you cannot remember the things that you meant to action as a result of things said earlier on Read it in printed form and you will turn corners or make notes I've listened to the CDs three times I had them on a loop in the car over a period of a couple of weeks and still couldn't write down a complete action list resulting from the material The audio version is also abridged so the printed form will contain extra material I do not know the detailsIn terms of the content I found myself agreeing with most of it particularly talk of resistance It can be summarised as you can either try to be the best you can be or you can just fit in That's it really What the author does not go into is the problem of how few companies can cope with people who push to be really good who do creative stuff and work slightly outside the box Many companies or middle or junior managers at least want people who do what they are told nothing nothing less and who just keep their heads down That might not be what the executives want but lower levels of management often do So if you are one of those people who push to do things better to create to deliver to improve uality and performance then you may just have to start your own company or try working for a number of companies before you find one where your efforts are appreciated Sad but true in the UK at leastI do also have a couple of issues with the idea of making yourself indispensible From the employer's point of view anybody indispensible represents key person risk Allowing anybody to become indispensible is a mistake on the employer's part Employers may take different actions when they realise that somebody is becoming indispensible The drastic one is to get rid of the person before it is too late the less drastic is to ensure that skills and knowledge are shared so that the person does not become indispensible From the employee's point of view if the employee has loyalty to hisher employer or colleagues then the employee should recognise when this key person risk is developing and try to ensure that action is taken to reduce it As a contractor I believe that one of my responsibilities is to ensure that when I move from one contract to another my previous client is able to continue without too much impact Whether that is by documenting in great detail the many things I do by training other people to do those same things or by a combination of methods I believe making myself indispensible is wrong despite understanding why from a job security angle some people would want to However making myself the best I can be is rightSo I think the title could be changed are you the best you can be rather than are you indispensible And I would say read this book rather than listen to it But otherwise it is pretty good if not great
