"Practical ways to build and run a successful business, as actually accomplished by Peter Drucker. —Dr. Pedro Chan, Executive Director, American Flying Tigers Institute

Across the globe, many current business and political leaders demonstrate a lack of integrity. The self-development lessons passed on from Peter Drucker, the father of modern management, serve as an all-important reminder that today’s leaders have an obligation to lead well-run organizations — no matter how big or small — with integrity and responsibility.

In “Peter Drucker’s Way to the Top: Lessons for Reaching Your Life’s Goals” (LID Publishing, November 2018), bestselling author and famed Drucker disciple Dr. William Cohen explains that these “soft” skills of business — integrity, responsibility, ethics, morality — are not born, they are developed over time, and from within.

This widely applicable leadership book examines the specific self-development methods that Drucker himself created and practiced and includes many examples, both old and new, to illustrate the critical points being made. Additionally, Cohen provides an overview of the qualities of a leader and guidelines on how to develop these qualities.

For as Peter Drucker famously wrote: “The most crucial and vital resource you have as an executive and as a manager is yourself; your organization is not going to do better than you do yourself.”

“Peter Drucker’s Way to the Top” is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound and will be released for sale in the US on November 6, 2018.
