Drucker - Again!

In preparing some work for a client this week, I returned to the work of Peter Drucker for inspiration. Here are his thoughts on what makes an effective executive:
  • Ask what needs to be done
  • Ask what’s right for the business
  • Develop action plans
  • Take responsibility for decisions
  • Take responsibility for communicating
  • Focus on opportunities, not problems
  • Run productive meetings
  • Say ‘We’ not ‘I’

I have always enjoyed the simplicity of his ideas - to me this makes them more useable. There is much to read behind these headlines but you could literally start by doing these 8 things and not read another word.

If you would like to read more though, take a look here.
