thrashing

In Seth Godin’s book “Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?”, the focus is on becoming a linchpin—a person who adds unique value to their organization through creativity and innovation. Godin encourages individuals to break free from traditional mindsets, emphasizing the importance of taking initiative and making a difference in their work. While the book doesn’t use the term “thrashing,” in the broader context of work and organizations, thrashing refers to unproductive, excessive activity often caused by a lack of focus and clear objectives. Overcoming thrashing and resistance in transformational work involves prioritization, effective communication, and adaptability, aligning with Godin’s message of becoming indispensable and embracing creativity.
