Kevin Cottam believes the mindsets of the world and leadership is becoming increasingly narrow and inward focused; if we are to survive, thrive, and flourish in Industry 4.0, we need to expand our mindsets by invoking the Nomadic Mindset in you. He proposes the path towards an expanded mindset can be found through embracing the qualities of ancient nomadic wisdom that have changed, adapted, and survived through the test of time and, in many cases, may have been forgotten.

“100% of executives interviewed said they needed more people with a Nomadic Mindset.”

The Nomadic Mindset, a metaphor for “the movement of the mind,” takes you on a journey by drawing upon and vividly sharing a wide range of exhilarating real-life stories and experiences of the nomads in Mongolia, the Maasai in Kenya, the Berbers in Southern Morocco and executive conversations and case studies.

This rare, fresh back-to-the-future leadership book will provoke and persuade you to rethink your mindset while raising your awareness of two other mindsets: the builder and settler. All three mindsets will give you insights on how you can better lead an interconnected, innovative, and engaged organisation. Look inside to discover why you should learn about the nomadic mindset and what the nomads know that you don’t.

"A tour de force of wisdom. This book is alive. If you are ready to develop a mindset that is free, curious and ready to change and adapt to collaborate with the people whom you share the same space, this is a book you cannot be without to navigate today's complex world." Dr. Philip Merry, A Leadering Expert on Synchronicity and Leadership

About the Author

Kevin Cottam is a Global Nomad. Based in Canada with outposts in Singapore, Brussels, and Lisbon, his mission is to inspire and encourage organizations and individuals to remove borders and expand their mindset: to embrace The Nomadic Mindset.

From his early beginnings as a champion figure skater, a former elite figure skating choreographer for world and Olympic champions, and a director of large-scale productions such as the 1988 Olympic Closing Ceremonies, Kevin has naturally sought to expand his students' and audiences' creativity and flexibility by presenting story-rich visual experiences. Today, he continues his mission by inspiring leaders in multinational enterprises (e.g., Thales, Givaudan, Club Med, L'Oreal, Nestle) and public sector (European Union) environments as a global inspirational keynote speaker, executive coach, and trainer, so he can further touch more cultures, people, and organisations.

He is also author of Aha, Mother's Pearls, a compilation of twenty-seven personal Aha moments of realisation: a pre-cursor self-help book to the leadership book, The Nomadic Mindset: Never Settle...for Too Long.
