Editorial Reviews

Review

“The best self-help piece that is ever written… Whenever I stall, I grab Managing Oneself.” ― Darius Faroux, author of Massive Life Successes, Founder of Procrastinate Zero, as seen on Medium

About the Author

Peter F. Drucker (1909–2005) is one of the best-known and most widely influential thinkers on the subject of management theory and practice, and his writings contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern corporation.

Often described as "the father of modern management theory," Drucker explored how people are organized across the business, government, and nonprofit sectors of society; he predicted many of the major business developments of the late twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization, the rise of Japan to economic world power, the critical importance of marketing, and the emergence of the information society with its implicit necessity of lifelong learning. In 1959, Drucker coined the term "knowledge worker" and in his later life considered knowledge-worker productivity to be the next frontier of management.

Peter Drucker died on November 11, 2005, in Claremont, California. He had four children and six grandchildren.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Short Read
By Mike on December 25, 2016
The site says that there are 72 pages in the book, but there are only 55 actual pages that need to be read. This is a small book and a quick read. This is just a summary book. I attached the picture of the paperback that I read. Here is the outline:

Lesson 1 : What are my strengths?

Feedback Analysis

1. Concentrate on your strengths
2. Improve them
3. Find what things are inhibiting your strengths

Lesson 2: How do I perform?

1. Am I a good reader or a listener? - Books or Audio books
2. How do you learn?

Try to focus on your strengths instead of improving your weaknesses.

Lesson 3: What are my values?

It is difficult to find a workplace with the same values as ours. We need to find a workplace where both the company and individual values align with each other

1. What are my strengths?
2. How do I perform?
3. What are my values?

Lesson 4: Where do I Belong?

We need to find answers to the questions (What are my strengths? How do I perform? and, What are my values) asked in lessons 1 thru 3 to figure out where do we actually belong. This is needed to convert from an ordinary worker to an extraordinary worker.

Lesson 5: What should I Contribute?

What tasks should I spend my time on?
What should my contribution be?
What results have to be achieved to make a difference?

A plan/goals should be made for no more than 18 months and still be reasonable clear and specific. Results should be visible and measureable.

Lesson 6: Responsibility for Relationships

People are as much individuals as you yourself are. To be effective working with the other individuals, we need to know the strengths, the performance modes and the values of the coworkers.

Lesson 7: The Second Half of your Life

1. Start a career in a different organization.
2. Parallel Career - Stay in your current job and start a parallel work either full or part time.
3. Start another organization, may be a non-profit one.
