When I started to work at Centribal (called Bimyou in 2018) I searched for some books that helped me to start my new adventure. A book was recommended many times, it was (and is) The manager’s path writen by Camille Fournier.

Manager's Path Book

It is a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ book again!

This book is ideal whether you’re a new manager, a mentor, or a more experienced leader looking for fresh advice. Pick up this book and learn how to become a better manager and leader in your organization.

  • Begin by exploring what you expect from a manager
