  • 1. MY FAVOURITES FROM DRUCKER-2
  • 2. Qualities of a Leader
    • Leadership is not magnetic personality
    • Leadership is not making friends and influencing people
    • It is the lifting of a man’s vision to higher sights ,the raising of a man’s performance to a higher standard ,the building of a man’s personality beyond its normal limitations
    • Set strict principles of conduct and high standards of performance ,and respect people and their work
  • 3. Crisis and Leadership
    • The most important task of an organization’s leader is to anticipate crisis . Perhaps not to avert , but to anticipate it . To wait until crisis hits is abdication . You cannot prevent a major catastrophe ,but you can build an organization that is battle-ready ,that has high morale ,that knows how to behave ,that trusts itself and where people trust one another .
    • In military training , the first rule is to instill soldiers with trust in their officers ,because without trust they won’t fight .

  • 4. Purpose of a Business
    • There is only one valid definition of business purpose : to create a customer
    • The customer is the foundation of a business and keeps it in existence .He alone gives employment .
    • Any business enterprise has two –and only two basic functions – marketing and innovation . These are the entrepreneurial functions .
    • Marketing is the distinguishing ,the unique function of business

  • 6. Base Leadership on Strength
    • The effective executive knows that it is easier to raise the performance of one leader than it is to raise the performance of a whole mass . It is therefore important that into the leadership position ,into the standard setting ,the performance-making position ,the person has the strength to do the outstanding, the pace-setting job
    • TO RAISE THE PERFORMANCE OF A BUSINESS UNIT PUT A STRONG LEADER AT THE HELM
