What made them all effective is that they followed the same eight practices:
They asked, "What needs to be done?"
They asked, "What is right for the enterprise?"
They developed action plans.
They took responsibility for decisions.
They took responsibility for communicating.
They were focused on opportunities rather than problems.This concise audiobook is based on Mr. Drucker's summary of The Effective Executive done at the request of Harvard Business Review and is now one of their best selling published works. This article is a perfect way to learn about the subject broadly in a short period of time. Unlike many articles of this kind, summarizing a book's contents, this article was written and crafted by the author himself. The Audiobook has nine tracks. 1. Introduction. 2. Get the Knowledge You Need. 3. Write an Action Plan. 4. Act. 5. Take Responsibility for Decisions. 6. Take Responsibility for Communicating. 7. Focus on Opportunities. 8. Make Meetings Productive. 9. Think and Say "We."

One of Drucker's best
Drucker describes extremely clearly what effective executives all have in common. And he iterates that regardless of your personality traits, you can still run a successful company if you are an effective leader with strong leadership skills. He talks about what those skills are without a bunch of motivational fluff you see in other books. Everything in this book is valuable.
