Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? : how to Drive Your Career and Create a Remarkable Future

Front Cover
Piatkus, 2010 - Creative thinking - 244 pages
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 - and the key to being indispensable is overcoming the fears that hold most of us back. Fear or change, fear of authority, fear of embarrassmen all co me from the most primitive and powerful part of our brains. Godin shows how to overcome that internal resistance, so you can unleash your greatest art, passion, insight and generosity at work.
