On Leadershp: Drucker Post #3

What Makes an Effective Executive by Peter Drucker (originally published in the HBR, 2003). Peter Drucker was a professor of social science and management at Claremont Graduate University in California. A leadership guru for the ages who gave us the term ‘knowledge worker,’ Drucker foresaw trends in the world of management. In this article, he notes that great leaders tended to follow these practices. They asked, “What needs to be done?” They asked, “What is right for the enterprise?” They developed action plans. They took responsibility for decisions and communication. Focused on opportunities, not problems. Ran productive meetings. Thought and said “we” rather than “I.”
