Treasurer provides us a whole new definition to "open door policy" - one that takes action to open doors for others - one that creates opportunities for others, and yourself. He mixes humor, personal stories, and a profound insight into a book that's very easy to read, understand, and put into practice. In fact, I read it without stopping, something I VERY rarely do.
Leaders are role models and set the tone of the organization. This book will help you reform your culture by helping you to become a positive powerful influencer. Share your new found abilities - and this book - with other leaders and you'll soon have employees that thrive and grow . . . and stay.
Leaders Open Doors provides a handful of powerful and real-life examples of how you, as a leader, can identify and offer opportunities to those in your organization.
Opening doors for others and encouraging their growth is how leaders create a legacy and build a more successful organization. His background in growing teams and developing leaders as a team building facilitator, executive coach, and leadership training consultant provide many of the stories that illustrate his points, and, as a leader in any field, they will encourage you to identify the doors that you might open to grow and develop your people.
The idea for the book came to him unexpectedly.
When Bill's five-year-old son, Ian, returned home from school, the youngster said his teacher had chosen him as that day's class leader.
"What did you do as class leader?" asked Bill.
"I got to open doors for people," said Ian.
That innocent answer knocked decades of convoluted leadership theory right out of Bill's head. He knew he had heard a leadership truth that was unadorned and far-reaching.
Writes Bill: " . . . to be a leader is to open doors for others. Leaders open doors of perception, possibility, and most importantly, opportunity."
One of my favorite things about the book are its chapter-concluding exercises. Trying to lead can overwhelm us if we let it, but time and again Bill provides exercises that help readers see opportunity in even the most intimidating situations.
This is a wonderful book.
