Hi Lisa,

You're right, the interview makes for fascinating listening. My favourite Drucker-ism is the one we use to open our page on Drucker quotes - Wisdom From the Giant of Giants:

"Most of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get their jobs done."

Even though Drucker seems to have spent his academic life trying to change this, it's amazing that this quote still has a ring of truth! We'll just have to keep plugging away in his absence!!

Phil:

I think that it is wise to "get it" that as manager, we are often mucking up things for people. If we see this, we can better temper it and become less of a nuisance (and maybe, become HELPFUL). :-)

the lack of leadership is one of the most common problem in almost all companies. Mr.Krames is right.
