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.
Leadership Two Words at a Time speaks directly to the plight of new leaders. Rather than overintellectualize the practice of leadership, Bill Treasurer breaks the concept up into essential and understandable nuggets of information, summed up by a two-word header, that provides the practical guidance and support that organizations often lack. The result is time-tested wisdom that new leaders can grasp immediately and implement easily—and, with a little practice, master completely.
Co-authored by Bill Treasurer and Captain John Havlik, U.S. Navy SEAL (retired), The Leadership Killer aims to help leaders of all types answer a critical question: How will I use my leadership power? Too many leaders are increasingly abusing their power, in the process damaging themselves and the people they’re charged with leading. This is particularly true for men in leadership roles, as the #MeToo movement has brought to light the scale of long-standing male abuses of power that have been happening just below the surface.
This comprehensive program provides talent development professionals with a step-by-step approach for using courage to transform the workplace. Delivered as a ½-day or full-day workshop, the materials are ideal for trainers, consultants and facilitators who are dedicated to strengthening leadership skills, improving performance, and counteracting the negative impacts of fear in the workplace. The Courageous Leadership workshop provides an introduction to an entirely new, yet absolutely essential, organizational development practice—courage-building.
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. Courage Goes to Work helps managers address the problem of workers who are “comfeartable”. Comfeartable workers don’t exert themselves any more than they have to. This book proposes that a manager’s success, happiness and longevity depend on how he or she deals with comfeartable workers. The antidote to comfeartableness, as this book explains, is courage. This book will teach you how to inspire courage, creating a dynamic and forward-thinking work environment.
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.
Right Risk is the first self-help book to focus solely on building personal courage. Published in four languages, Right Risk draws upon author Bill Treasurer’s experience as an organizational development professional and former daredevil athlete. During Bill’s 7 years as a traveling member of the U.S. High Diving Team, he performed over 1500 high dives from heights that scaled to over 100 feet – the equivalent of a 10-story building. Bill takes the lessons that he learned as a captain of the U.S. High Diving Team, and uses them to help readers face whatever high dives they may be facing.
