My bet is that the leaders you most admire are the ones who left you better off than they found you by creating opportunities that helped you grow.
Open-door leadership involves creating or assigning opportunities in order to promote growth. By promoting the growth of those they lead, leaders increase the likelihood of their own success and advancement. They also increase the likelihood of creating other leaders, which is essential to building a lasting leadership legacy.
People and organizations grow and develop to the extent that they capitalize on opportunities to do so. Opportunities are important to leaders because they’re important to the people they lead. Opportunities are the venues where people can try, test, better, and even find themselves. The leader’s job is to match the opportunity to the person and to help the person—and the organization—exploit the opportunity for all it’s worth. Open-door leadership is about noticing, identifying, and creating opportunities for those being led.
Leaders create leaders by opening doors of opportunity that have a positive and lasting impact on the behavior of those they lead.
Want to be this kind of open-door leader? Start by studying and applying these four skills.
The more you cultivate these skills, the more you will see opportunities to open doors for others.
