Host: Association for Talent Development
By: William Treasurer, Founder and Chief Encouragement Officer , Giant Leap Consulting

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.
