Seeing ‘Drucker on the Dial’ in such big-league company is really validating.
Claremont, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
“Drucker on the Dial,” a monthly radio show produced by the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University, was recognized by the Public Radio Exchange (PRX) as part of its 2011 Zeitfunk Awards.
PRX handed out Zeitfunk Awards in 18 different categories, and an episode of “Drucker on the Dial” was cited as being the year’s 18th most viewed piece among all of those that were embedded using PRX's embeddable audio player.
The episode, which first aired in July 2011, was called “Beyond the Comfort Zone.” It includes interviews with Gail McGovern, the chief executive of the American Red Cross, and Scott Keller of McKinsey & Co. about management challenges across diverse sectors.
“What’s notable about receiving this honor is that all the other programs in this category—including those from the Moth Radio Hour and Kitchen Sisters—aired on well-known public radio shows with huge national followings,” said Phalana Tiller, the Drucker Institute’s communications manager and the host of “Drucker on the Dial.” “We’re still quite new, and just trying to establish ourselves. So, seeing ‘Drucker on the Dial’ in such big-league company is really validating.”
A one-hour show on management and leadership, “Drucker on the Dial” is available for free on the second Friday of every month on the PRX, an online marketplace for distribution, review and licensing of public radio programming. It is also available for webstreaming through the Drucker Institute’s blog, the Drucker Exchange, and as a podcast on iTunes U.
“Drucker on the Dial” features a wide range of well-known guests—executives, authors, academics and others—discussing topics that spring from the headlines. At the same time, the show is informed by the teachings of the late Peter F. Drucker, hailed by BusinessWeek as “the man who invented management.” The tagline for “Drucker on the Dial” is “where timely issues meet timeless principles.”
About the Drucker Institute
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University is a think tank and action tank whose purpose is to better society by stimulating effective management and responsible leadership. It does this, in large part, by advancing the ideas and ideals of the late Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management.
To meet its mission, the Institute hosts collaborative forums for executives from across all sectors; works with high school and middle school students to teach them basic management principles and equip them with lifelong tools for effectiveness; produces curricular material that distills Drucker’s decades of leading-edge thinking, including a management training system called the Drucker Management Path; and acts as a hub for a worldwide network of Drucker Societies: volunteer-driven organizations that are using Drucker’s teachings to bring about positive change in their local communities.
In addition, the Institute maintains a digital archive of Drucker’s papers and other holdings related to the fields of management and leadership; undertakes research that builds on Drucker’s writings; offers an annual $100,000 prize for nonprofit innovation; applies Drucker’s work to current events (through a regular online column in Bloomberg Businessweek by Institute Executive Director Rick Wartzman; a blog called the Drucker Exchange; and a monthly radio show called “Drucker on the Dial”); and hosts visiting fellows with Drucker-like insights and values.
The Institute is a close affiliate of the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, which is training the next generation of leaders and managers to do good while they do well. For more on the Drucker Institute, please visit: http://www.druckerinstitute.com.
