Business coach Shannon Wallis joins us on this episode of Camino Talks to discuss her new book – WE the Change: Launching Big Ideas and Creating New Realities. This book is a combination of Camino memoir, life story, and a guide to making positive changes in your life.

Shannon Wallis’ ability to launch big ideas and create new realities comes from more than thirty years of professional study as well as a lifetime of personal vision, tenacity, and practice.

Her clients include leaders, teams, and organizations on six continents from Fortune 50 companies and non-profits. She has worked with over twenty thousand leaders on six continents to launch big ideas and create new realities for their leadership, teams, and organizations.

Prior to founding Cascade Leadership, Shannon was the global director of high-potential leadership development at Microsoft.

As an executive coach and leadership and organization effectiveness consultant, Shannon’s personal journey of transformation is living proof of the power of working collectively to WE the Change. Shannon continues the journey with her family, Joe, Savannah, Fiona, and darling dog Zoey, in Bellevue, WA.

In this Camino Talks interview, Shannon discusses her journey to the Camino. From her challenging childhood through a series of devastating events in her life, and on to the path of healing. WE the Change is a roadmap for anyone wanting to transform their life, organization, or community.

We love how this book weaves together the physical journey on the Camino with emotional and mental journeys in life. The lessons and messages of the book are so clear and applicable to life, while still being creatively and engagingly written.

The second half of the book is a workbook with a series of exercises. It walks the reader through their big ideas and the changes they want to make, offering insights and guidance.


Shannon wrote her book for her daughters, and by extension for women everywhere. It is thoughtful, compassionate, inspiring, and useful.

You can order WE the Change: Launching Big Ideas and Creating New Realities on Amazon in hard copy or for e-readers.
