Peter Drucker is an icon of the business world. The methods developed by this genius were so powerful that they are still used today in organizations all over the world. Yet one of his most important contributions is still little known. Drucker had uncovered principles of self-development that he put into practice himself - principles that enabled him to reach all of his life goals.
For the first time, this book examines the self-development methods that Drucker created and practiced - and offers vital and original lessons to anyone in business on how to accomplish any goal in any endeavor. For as Drucker 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."

Employees around the world are deprived of honest objective feedback, and the higher you go in the organisation, the less feedback you are going to get. Researchers confirmed that the less facetime employees have with their managers, the more impact seeking and receiving feedback will have on their performance.
Gorbatov and Lane propose a simple, systematic approach to giving fair and honest feedback, in ways that improve performance and prove that, if done properly, feedback simultaneously improves performance while engaging and developing employees.
