"Every organization needs linchpins…artists, with a genius for finding a new answer, a new connection, or a new way of getting things done." - Seth Godin, Linchpin, Are You Indispensable? Seth Godin pens provocative books with witty titles such as Unleashing the Ideavirus1 and Tribes.2 His most recent book, Linchpin, Are You Indispensable?3 is about the art of connection, the art of being human and the art of making a huge difference. Health care clinicians, faculty and students are well advised to read his work as they strive to master the art of meaningful interprofessional connections, so that together, they can make huge strides to improve health care quality and patient safety.
