Overview

A collection of notes on leadership, initially written by Leandro Herrero, author of Viral Change and The Flipping Point, for his Daily Thoughts blog. Camino, the Spanish for road, or way, reflects on leadership as a praxis that continuously evolves. Nobody is ever a leader. Becoming one is the real quest. But we never reach the destination. Our character is constantly shaped by places and journeys, encounters and experiences. The only real theory of leadership is travelling. The only footprints, our actions. The only test, what we leave behind.

Good leaders are good path makers. A leader is the cartographer in chief who, whilst walking with others, also becomes an architect and a builder. If this is about journeys, and maps, and building, then there is almost no end to it. On his own journey, Leandro took notes and articulated ideas. Most became his Daily Thoughts, a blog running for years. This book is an extensive collection of those notes.

Don't look for Harvard here, there are only harbours and other places that have generously adopted the content between them. Camino is a collection of warnings, strong views and discoveries that are not intended to be transferable. After all, the journey is not transferable, nobody can walk the Camino for you. Leandro's unique writing style and challenging views provide a refreshing look at leadership. And not a sterile case study in sight. In Camino he shares his notes and ideas, like one shares a meal without having to explain the chemistry of the ingredients, they are in this book, still full of dust from his journey. The one he has only just begun.

Camino, Leadership Notes on the Road, is a beautifully designed, comprehensive collection of insightful, challenging and thought-provoking, ideas, views and thoughts on leadership.

About the Author

Leandro Herrero is the CEO of The Chalfont Project, an international firm of organizational architects, and the designer of its products and services in the areas of large scale, behavioural change (Viral Change™), collective leadership and smart organizational designs. He has written several books in these areas and is also an international speaker on organizational culture and leadership topics. To date Viral Change™, the flagship of The Chalfont Project, has impacted on more than a quarter of a million employees so far, in both the private and public sectors, across many geographies. Before founding The Chalfont Project 20 years ago, he spent many years as a hands-on leader in several world class companies, in areas such as pharma R&D, commercial health care roles and health economics. Meaning, he has been on the other side of the fence. Before that he was a practicing clinical psychiatrist, treating patients and teaching in a university at the same time. During that time he wrote 3 books. He completed an MBA, whilst working in the pharmaceutical industry which helped him to transition from medical doctor (basically an alien) to manager (basically an indigenous species). It also allows him to make bad jokes about MBAs, probably its most useful outcome... He is a Fellow member of several management bodies keeping alive some appearance of faithful tribalism.
