The study of leadership development has grown to be very complicated. We often get stuck thinking about leadership in terms of matrices and competencies and modules. The simple truth is that to be a leader is to open doors of opportunity for others. To be most effective, leaders need to be opportunity-creators. Drawing on the concepts introduced in the new book, Leaders Open Doors, leadership expert Bill Treasurer shows how leaders help people and organizations grow by creating meaningful learning opportunities.
Open Door Leaders focus on aligning the needs of the organization with the career aspirations of those they lead. People and organizations grow and develop when they intentionally pursue goals and challenges that stretch their skills and test their mettle.
In this session, participants will:
- Gain insight into the four specific skills that all Open Door Leaders need to use
- Learn five compelling ways that opportunity attracts, inspires, and develops people
