By William A. Cohen

The late Peter Drucker’s management principles continue to be studied and applied by managers all over the world. Though many seek his lessons on the central element of management-leadership, he in fact wrote relatively little under this actual subject heading.

Now, for the first time, William A. Cohen, a former student of Drucker’s and a leadership expert and author in his own right, brings together Drucker’s reflections on leadership, culled from his 40 books and hundreds of articles. He explains why there is so little known about Drucker’s ideas on leadership, but why what he did write is so relevant to today’s world.
