Indispensable Linchpin?


Indispensable Linchpin?

Most of you don’t have any idea what this is about, do you?  That’s okay.  That’s where jungle jeff comes in.

You see, in my insatiable quest for business excellence, leadership excellence, customer service excellence, brand loyalty excellence and creative excellence, you can count on jungle jeff to discover the stuff that most people despise, and therefore, are utterly clueless to.

(This makes the linchpin’s job even easier)

You know the stuff – the information, the ideas, the inspiration, the permission, and the actual people doing it differently.

These are the people who can’t stand to listen to “what we’re gonna do”, but are actually the ones who just make up their minds and start doing it – differently, better – with greater reach, greater relevance and greater impact.

There’s a catch here today, or else nothing here matters. The catch is you have to click here to watch this video. It’s like two minutes of conversation about what a linchpin is.

If you don’t know what a linchpin is, you are already behind.  Is today your day to catch up?  To reinforce the obvious?

Did her description sound like who you are, or who you want to be?

  1. JJ, I’m a Linchpin. I think I was born this way and the Corps strengthened this characteristic in me. My nature is a linchpin.

    However, the linchpin may not always be the most technically proficient, the most articulate, the smartest, etc…which sometimes causes them to be overlooked by us in leadership positions.

    The trick is to able to identify the linchpin or as I call it the “keystone” that holds the team together.

    Self reflection time: Am I thinker, am I a doer, or am I a thinker and doer? Actions speak louder than words.

    Have a great day.

  2. Skip, have you read Linchpin?
    Just got it today.
    It’s about being indispensable.
    Indispensable. What a thought.
    Actions do speak louder than words.
    There is a funny sort of weird, funky, new-age revolution happening.
    Look what one guy, Seth Godin, has done to challenge intuitive thinking with counter-intuitive.
    You’re right, doing beats thinking. And thinking and doing beats that.
