Summary

A leadership journey unlike any other. Stretching across 500 miles of northern Spain, the Camino de Santiago has been a pilgrimage route for a millennium. Each year, hundreds of thousands of peregrinos make their way through rugged countryside and medieval towns in order to reflect, test their will, and join a community of strangers on a shared mission. In short, it's the ideal training ground for authentic leadership. Challenged to walk the Camino, Victor Prince began his trek as one person: driven, work-focused and highly competitive, and he finished it a very different one: more balanced, more caring, and more present in the moment. In this transformative book he guides readers on their own Camino, translating his experience into seven essential leadership lessons inspired by the values emblazoned on the back of every pilgrim's passport: Treat each day as its own adventure * Make others feel welcome * Learn from those who've walked before * Consider your impact on those who follow * And more Leadership is a journey. The Camino Way prepares you to tackle it with a pilgrim's heart, a wayfarer's grit, and a leader's vision.

    Pre-negotiation is a heightened, or (arguably) more aggressive, form of research that may be carried out by either party to a negotiation, in advance of that negotiation. Its success is largely based on the negotiator turning the traditional buyer / seller relationship on its head. By using the pre-negotiation strategy, you give the other party to the negotiation the opportunity to work together with you to achieve a deal – and everybody wins!

    This work offers a summary of the book "Linchpin: are you indispensable?" by Seth Godin. It's time to rethink how you do your job, Seth Godin believes. Instead of working to become a better cog in the company machine, learn how to become a "linchpin" – the vital piece of hardware which holds the wheel onto the axle.. If you want a job where you are treated as indispensable, given massive amounts of responsibility and freedom, expected to expend emotional labor, and rewarded for being a human…then…it's time to stop complying with the system and draw your own map."
    Godin has great authority on which to base his theory: he founded and served as CEO of Yoyodyne, which was acquired by Yahoo! When he became vice president of direct marketing at Yahoo!. In Linchpin, he gives the reader guidelines on networking, how to use emotion to elevate your work, and how to share your work ("real artists ship", as Steve Jobs famously said). Don't surrender at the first sign of trouble: if you fail, at least you'll fail forward. He also provides 7 abilities linchpins have, such as providing a unique interface, and inspiring others.
    In today's economic times, every employee must learn how to be a linchpin. Seth Godin's ideas are invigorating and valuable.
