Best Quotes by Peter Drucker (Top 10)

  1. Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
  2. The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I." And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say "I." They don't think "I." They think "we"; they think "team." They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.
  3. The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said.
  4. Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
  5. There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.
  6. Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
  7. The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.
  8. The purpose of a business is to create a customer.
  9. Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.
  10. Do not believe that it is very much of an advance to do the unnecessary three times as fast.
