If Peter Drucker Were Your Personal Coach… November 22 2013
For more than 50 years of his almost 96 year life, Peter Drucker was known as the “Father of Modern Management.” His dozens of books included Concept of the Corporation, The Practice of Management and The Effective Executive.
Drucker was one of the few big thinkers who changed the way people view leadership. Can you imagine what it would have been like to have had him as your personal coach?
Relatively few people had that opportunity during Drucker’s life, but, fortunately, for the rest of us, Bruce Rosenstein has provided the next best thing in his new book, Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way. He’s the managing editor of Leader to Leader Journal which has a long association with Drucker, he has written a previous book on Drucker and he had the good fortune of conducting several multi-hour interviews with Drucker in the last years of his life.
In a recent conversation with Bruce, he told me that his goal for his new book was to show how to apply Drucker’s principles of leadership to one’s own life rather than the organization one happens to lead. In this brief recording, Bruce shared with me three big ideas on how Drucker’s systematic approach to creating the future can be applied to your own life.
It might just be the next best thing to having Peter Drucker as your personal coach.
