Location: Wine-Price Building

Description: 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? If so, you have what it takes to become indispensable to your organization. According to Seth Godin, everyone can be the "linchpin" of their work: someone who makes things happen, creates order out of chaos, connects people to one another and projects, and delights and challenges their peers and customers. This workshop shows you how to become a linchpin to make significant impact within your organization.


  • Understand the definition of a "linchpin" compared to a "cog"
  • Identify the seven abilities of a linchpin
  • Recognize how to transform your job role by applying linchpin abilities

Facilitated by: Chinenye Omile, Graduate Assistant, Talent Development; Gail Napora, Director, Talent Development
