Leadership is the most overanalyzed, thoroughly dissected, and utterly confused topic in business. In Leaders Open Doors, author Bill Treasurer helps lighten the leadership load by distilling that leaders are simply creators of opportunity for others. Using personal stories and anecdotes, Treasurer presents the idea of open-door leadership-that is, the responsibility that leaders have for noticing, identifying, and creating opportunities for the benefit of people, organizations, and society. Each chapter includes useful and specific tips that can immediately be put into practice.
Drawing on two decades of consulting experience, Treasurer introduces six unique opportunity doors:
the proving-ground door
the thought-shifting door
the door to a second chance
the doors you open for others
the door to personal transformation
the door to your open heart
Treasurer shows that leadership isn't a complex and abstract concept. It's a set of practices and ideals passed from one person to another, across organizations and generations. It is a tradition that makes people's lives better by opening doors of opportunities for them to thrive, achieve, and lead.
