Seth Godin, Linchpin

less than 1 minute read

The concept of the book doesn’t really fancy my life philosophy. I’m more a team player than an individualist. But the book ends up being interesting. It resulted in a delightful read (listening) and the many examples that the author uses are amusing.

I did not agree with him ignoring the importance of real teamwork. In my 20+ years of experience with teams, I realize that there is nothing more powerful than a well assembly team of 5 or 7 people. They complement each other to perform like 10. But it a challenging task to build it up. It might take years, and It might never happen for some teams. He even dismissed the word “Teamwork” as a term used by bosses to manipulates employes.

Anyway, I did enjoy the book, and I would recommend it as a text to make you think about your approach to work and life.
