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

Kevin Cottam's leadership book seamlessly interconnects ancient nomadic wisdom and today's leadership in a revealing, story-filled book that shares the vital qualities of a nomadic mindset. The Nomadic MindsetTM is a necessary read for leaders of all levels traversing today's disruptive environments."
Marshall Goldsmith - Thinkers 50 Ranking: #1 executive coach and the only two-time #1 leadership thinker in the world
"Captivating stories and reminders. The Nomadic MindsetTM explores per- sonal leadership qualities essential for good living and well-being in our rapidly changing world. Profiling three typologies--the nomad, the builder, and the settler--this new book makes a compelling case for appreciating and cultivating our ancient nomadic wisdom."
Ron Kaufman - New York Times Bestseller, Uplifting Service
"Intriguing and timely! This book brings the wisdom of the nomadic peo- ple, who have adapted for centuries to the ever-changing nature, to today's disruptive world and shows us the way to migrate to the new future."
Wendy Tan - Wholeness in a Disruptive World
"A book for our time. An opportunity to look forwards to where we need to go in the future while looking back at the wisdom we've lost or ignored from the past. When ancient cultures understand change is paramount to survival, without losing the essence of who they are, that is worth reflecting on. A powerful leadership manifesto that should be a must-read for busi- ness leaders everywhere."
Andrea T. Edwards - The Digital Conversationalist
"Insightful and inspirational, with engaging stories of travel and meeting interesting people, Kevin takes us on an outer and an inner journey. As humans, we are all intentionally or unintentionally moving from point 'A' to point 'B, ' and this book raises some important questions on what leadership is really about--highly recommended."

Self-Leadership: How to become a more successful, effective & efficient leader from the inside out
"A modern era 'nomadic' Robinson Crusoe. Daniel Defoe's epic novel, Robinson Crusoe, has been enjoyed by tens of millions of adventurous readers. I believe the same will happen with Kevin's book. The key dif- ference is his book is rich with real people's stories and experiences that we can adopt to upgrade our own leadership journey for a storybook life."
Rob Salisbury B.Com. - CSP, Leadership Strategist
"A tour de force of wisdom. This book is alive. If you are ready to develop a mindset that is free, curious, and willing to change and adapt to collaborate with the people with whom you share the same space, this is the book you cannot be without to navigate today's complex world."

While researching this book, Kevin Cottam embarked on a journey to experience and absorb nomadic cultures on different continents. Drawing on these unique experiences, he shares the importance of traditions still deeply imbedded in these cultures. These customs have been kept alive for centuries and still play a fundamental role in how life is conducted in general and how business is done there. As we are introduced to wonderful ceremonies, such as the Tea Ceremony, we are inspired to reflect on the possible learning opportunities, both for us as individuals and for our organisations. We are enticed to wonder how these learnings can enrich and transform our modern leadership practices.
The stories and the colourfully vibrant yet peaceful pictures kept me in awe throughout. Kevin Cottam is an excellent storyteller and takes us with him on his discovery journeys to the deserts. He excites our senses as he weaves pictorial scenes and sentences, paints landscapes and portraits, and elucidates ceremonies and rituals. He masterfully leads us from the desert to the boardroom and from the nomads to the Western world in a juxtaposition of realities.
There are different layers and levels to this book that you can use to suit your needs. It can be read as an interesting exploration of the few tribes that still live by the principles of the nomadic mindset, as a collection of interesting views on leadership as told by corporate leaders across different industries and countries, or both.
Readers with an inquisitive and adventurous mind will discover The Nomadic Mindset and its benefits for individuals and organisations and their management. Leaders who wish to abandon the current well-known, ineffectual archetype and want to discover new pastures for their herds find a wealth of wisdom in The Nomadic Mindset, an excellent tool and a terrific option for those who want to lead change in their organisation and are willing to think differently.
This truly masterful book took me on an inspiring and thought-provoking journey, which I enjoyed tremendously. There is no doubt in my mind that every time I look into The Nomadic Mindset: Never Settle...for Too Long I will get more insights, spirited ideas, and a deeper understanding that will lead to further contemplation. This ground-breaking book ought to be on the reading list of every leader and manager.
Agnes Tarnai, Leadership Coach and Conference Speaker - Hungary
