Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this daily companion, management guru Drucker offers key statements or a "Drucker Proverb" followed by a few thoughtful comments or explanations on topics ranging from innovation and entrepreneurship, the world economy, a changing society and workforce, to nonprofits and their management. Each of these 366 daily readings concludes with an "Action Point" that carefully details how to put the idea into practice. As in his teaching, Drucker encourages readers to apply his ideas to themselves and to their organizations. After the action point, Drucker cites the original source or sources for the reading. The bibliography details each title and indicates if it is out of print. "Sources by Book or Internet Module" lists the titles and days they referenced, and "Sources by Day and Parallel Passages" lists the day, title, and pages in the titles. Finally, "Readings by Topic" groups the days under broad subjects like business ethics, growth, leadership, and social responsibility. Entrepreneurs, managers, and students will enjoy this powerful, inspirational learning tool. Most business collections should add.-Susan C. Awe, Univ. of New Mexico Lib., Albuquerque Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

First Chapter

The Daily Drucker
366 Days of Insight and Motivation for Getting the Right Things Done 1 January Integrity in Leadership

The spirit of an organization is created from the top.

The proof of the sincerity and seriousness of a management is uncompromising emphasis on integrity of character. This, above all, has to be symbolized in management's "people" decisions. For it is character through which leadership is exercised; it is character that sets the example and is imitated. Character is not something one can fool people about. The people with whom a person works, and especially subordinates, know in a few weeks whether he or she has integrity or not. They may forgive a person for a great deal: incompetence, ignorance, insecurity, or bad manners. But they will not forgive a lack of integrity in that person. Nor will they forgive higher management for choosing him.

This is particularly true of the people at the head of an enterprise. For the spirit of an organization is created from the top. If an organization is great in spirit, it is because the spirit of its top people is great. If it decays, it does so because the top rots; as the proverb has it, "Trees die from the top." No one should ever be appointed to a senior position unless top management is willing to have his or her character serve as the model for subordinates.

Action Point: Evaluate the character of the CEO and top management when considering a job offer. Align yourself with people who have integrity.
