Bill Treasurer - Leaders Open Doors

Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013

Leadership is the most overanalyzed, thoroughly dissected, and utterly confused topic in business. In this session, Bill Treasurer helps lighten the leadership load by distilling that leaders are simply creators of opportunity for others. Using personal stories and anecdotes, Bill 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.

Bill will share useful and specific tips that can immediately be put into practice. Drawing on two decades of consulting experience, Bill introduces six unique opportunity doors:

  1. the proving-ground door
  2. the thought-shifting door
  3. the door to a second chance
  4. the doors you open for others
  5. the door to personal transformation
  6. the door to your open heart

Bill shares 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.
