Leaders Open Doors, 2nd Edition

By  Bill Treasurer

Leaders Open Doors
Get Abstract Button

True leaders open doors of opportunity.

"I got to open doors for people!" These seven simple words, spoken by author Bill Treasurer's five-year-old son, cut straight to what matters most about leadership: True leaders open doors for people. This radically simple concept is the heart of Leaders Open Doors.

This book presents a fresh and unique take on leadership that will benefit experienced leaders and those just starting their leadership journeys. With a little courage, anyone at any level can be a leader.

Drawing on two decades of experience, author and speaker, Bill Treasurer, in this new second edition, combines personal stories and anecdotes to illustrate how (and how not) to inspire people. He approaches these ideas with the belief that great leadership is not hierarchical—it is the peoples' willingness to take initiative and reach their goals that is crucial to successful leadership.

Barry Silverstein
Foreword Reviews

The message is insightful—if you aren’t opening doors for your people, you are closing them!

Marshall Goldsmith

Treasurer presents his inspiring concept of ‘open-door leadership.’ He dispels the myth that your door should always be open to interruptions, since you’d never get any work done that way. Instead, he says leaders should open doors that give other people opportunities, thus helping their employees’ careers and their own. getAbstract recommends this concise, uplifting and practical manual to leaders and those who want to lead.
