Inhaltsangabe

There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. 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. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

Linchpins are the essential building blocks of great organizations. Like the small piece of hardware that keeps a wheel from falling off its axle, they may not be famous but they’re indispensable. And in today’s world, they get the best jobs and the most freedom. Have you ever found a shortcut that others missed? Seen a new way to resolve a conflict? Made a connection with someone others couldn’t reach? Even once? Then you have what it takes to become indispensable, by overcoming the resistance that holds people back.

As Godin writes, “Every day I meet people who have so much to give but have been bullied enough or frightened enough to hold it back. It’s time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map. You have brilliance in you, your contribution is essential, and the art you create is precious. Only you can do it, and you must.”

Do not miss

Everyone should put Godin's voice of reason in his/her head, keep it there, ultimately give in to it, act on the remarkebly simple and powerful insights and the spread the word. The world needs more linchpins!

An important message. But only one.

Seth's Message is to invest yourself more in what you do today. Break rules if you feel this is better for your company and the people you work with. I agree with this message and Godin is very passionate about it, so this is all well and good.

But: the text is unclearly structured. Very short chapters or paragraphs with partially disagreeing messages, some examples, some personal stories, some believes of Mr. Godin. It is often unclear where he's going in his narrative and he seems to be jumping quite often.

While this book is motivational in itself, I feel others send a similar message with more substance (i.e. Covey) or with more motivational power (i.e. Ziglar). I suggest skipping this book for any the other authors.

Gute Ideen und Kreativitätssteigerung

Seth Godin ist so inspirierend. Er hat wahnsinnig gute Ideen. Ein sehr kurzweiliges Hörbuch. Er hat auch einen täglichen Newsletter den ich sehr gerne lese.
