Baseball spring training season is marked with a series of practices and exhibition games to prepare new and old players alike for the coming official season. This year's Pittsburgh Pirates spring training at Pirate City in Bradenton, Florida also included leadership sessions with best-selling author Bill Treasurer. The invitation came after Clint Hurdle, the Pirates manager, read Treasurer's latest book, "Leaders Open Doors." What Treasurer didn't realize was that he would learn as much about leadership from the Pirates in their two days together as he would offer the players and coaches. This slideshow features the five leadership lessons learned during spring training, as well as the essential takeaways for leaders of businesses and organizations of all types.
Download a free excerpt from "Leaders Open Doors." In the chapter 2 excerpt, author Bill Treasurer discusses the importance and benefits of being an opportunity-focused leader versus a problem-focused leader.
