Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

Linchpin is a vital person for an organization or an enterprise. That’s the major topic of the book.

It doesn’t tell one story but offers a plethora of short stories or descriptions which support the general principles that should be followed by a Linchpin. A very inspiring book that makes one take a serious look at themselves and ask the questions “how am I impacting the day of those who are affected by my work?” or “when I leave this job, will it matter that I’m gone?”. The book inspires the reader to leverage inner genius such as passions or talents in order to create a powerful and meaningful life. It also emphasises the importance of genuine relations in our life and career.

However, as I’m 34 right now, and considerably experienced in business, sometimes I found the book pretty shallow. I think that some early business students might build castles in the sky after reading this book.

Anyway, it was a great pleasure to retrospect my career and my employers and to come up with some new potential prospects.
