Become An Effective Executive

But how?

I recommend you read a book. Not any book of course. What about “The Effective Executive” by Peter Drucker for example. That's what I recommend.

Peter Drucker (1909–2005) was a writer, management consultant, and self-described “social ecologist.” Widely considered to be the father of “modern management,” his 39 books and countless scholarly and popular articles explored how humans are organized across all sectors of society — in business, government and the nonprofit world. His writings have predicted many of the major developments of the late twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning. In 1959, Drucker coined the term “knowledge worker.”

It was actually business coach Eben Pagan, who introduced me to Peter Drucker's work in one of his time management, effectiveness lessons, when he addressed the special needs of knowledge workers. The Effective Executive is not especially written for top level executives. It addresses issue that are of importance for everyone in an organization, who is in charge of influencing the work habits of others.

I find the book very valuable for Internet business related entrepreneurs (like myself).

Go and check it out.
