Written with you, the leader, in mind, our books teach you how to maximize your courage and become the leader you always wanted to be.
There are two types of leaders, those who have been humbled, and those who are about to be. Sooner or later, every leader runs into a wall of incompetence, weakness, or hubris that Treasurer calls “the leadership kick in the ass.” Do you derail from being a leader or learn from scraping your knees? Treasurer finds that the most difficult problem leaders face is finding the right midpoint between overconfidence and indecisiveness or weakness. Just about all leaders land on the wrong side of this tough balance at some point – and that’s when they get their asses kicked.
“I got to open doors for people!” These seven simple words, spoken by author Bill Treasurer’s five-year-old son, cut straight to what matters most about leadership: true leaders open doors for people. Drawing on two decades of experience, in this new second edition, Bill Treasurer combines personal stories and anecdotes to illustrate how (and how not) to inspire people. He approaches these ideas with the belief that great leadership is not hierarchical; it is the people’s willingness to take initiative and reach their goals that is crucial to successful leadership.

Courage Goes To Work by Bill Treasurer is for every manager who has ever struggled with how to encourage employees to develop and show more backbone.

This book will teach you how to inspire courage, creating a dynamic and forward-thinking work environment.
