  1. These are also words from ‘the Third Drucker’ : “… management is ministry for helping people” ; "…making the strengths of our people effective and their weaknesses irrelevant."

    Relevant to this is how he managed himself. Drucker lived as a Free Agent , making an abundant life while making a living –-without running a big organization, he matched his passion with personal talents and self management and had good rest and reflection. He was also a good Action Learner—habitually asking critical questions, advocating actions on knowledge acquired, reflecting on experiences for future planning, and most importantly, practicing life-long learning.
