A Quote by Peter F. Drucker (1909-2005 ) on friend


The key question for a leader is "What can I do in this organization that nobody else can do?" And several questions emerge from that: What did the good Lord ordain me for? What are my strengths? Where have I seen results? Very few of us ask these questions because very few of us even know how we perform. What am I good at? We don't usually ask that question. We've been trained to notice our weaknesses, not our strengths. Schools, of necessity, are remedial institutions. When teachers meet with parents, rarely do they say, "Your Johnny should do more writing. He's so talented in writing." No, more likely you'll hear, "Johnny needs more work on his math. He's a bit weak in that area." As a result, few of us really know our strengths. The great teachers, and great leaders, recognize strengths and focus on them.  - Peter Drucker
