Written by veteran leadership trainer Bill Treasurer, this highly anticipated publication combines personal stories and anecdotes that illustrate how leaders can hone in on what is most essential about leading: creating opportunities for those they lead.

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

The Association for Talent Development (formerly ASTD) will release the second edition of "Leaders Open Doors: A Radically Simple Leadership Approach to Lift People, Profits, and Performance" on October 1. Written by veteran leadership trainer Bill Treasurer, this highly anticipated publication combines personal stories and anecdotes that illustrate how leaders can hone in on what is most essential about leading: creating opportunities for those they lead.

Treasurer has devoted more than two decades to training thousands of executives and top-level leaders to strengthen their impact by opening doors for others. This book introduces six opportunity doors that leaders at any level—in both the public and private sector—must open to help others deliver their very best.

"Leaders Open Doors" provides the reader with practical, easy-to-understand insights and ideas. Readers will discover how to empower colleagues to prove themselves by opening the proving-ground door; to think in a more inspired way by opening the thought-shifting door; and to stretch and grow by opening the door to personal transformation. Treasurer also provides strategies for encouraging smart risk-taking and building authentic connections.

“The message is insightful—if you aren’t opening doors for your people, you are closing them!” writes Marshall Goldsmith, best-selling author of MOJO, in his endorsement.

The hardcover book is available for preorder for $19.95 and the ATD member price of $17.95 at http://www.astd.org/opendoorleaders. Preorders ship free within the continental United States.

Author proceeds are being donated to organizations that open doors for children with special needs.
