A commemorative edition of Peter F. Drucker's timeless classic work on leadership and management, with a foreword by Jim Collins.
What makes an effective executive?
For decades Peter F. Drucker was widely regarded as "the dean of this country's business and management philosophers" (Wall Street Journal). In this concise and brilliant work, he looks to the most influential position in management - the executive.
The measure of the executive, Drucker reminds us, is the ability to "get the right things done". This usually involves doing what other people have overlooked as well as avoiding what is unproductive. Intelligence, imagination, and knowledge may all be wasted in an executive job without the acquired habits of mind that mold them into results.
Drucker identifies five practices essential to business effectiveness that can - and must - be mastered:
Ranging across the annals of business and government, Drucker demonstrates the distinctive skill of the executive and offers fresh insights into old and seemingly obvious business situations.

I have read this book physically and listened to it twice on Audible, it's that good.
The bottom line is that being a good professional and being effective follow universal principles. This is what the book will bring the reader, the solid principles of professionalism and management. These are not theories by some new-age millennial-dork, these are battle tested ideas that have survived many decades of scrutiny.
only books with not effective readers
not sure but someone different who credits Drucker and does service to this important work
the content is magnificent. but delivery was most irritating
please re-record (or refund my money) with a different voice.
Instead of reading the many contemporary books on leadership, pick up this old timeless treatise that is exceedingly relevant over 50 years after it was first published.
