7 management nuggets from The effective executive by Peter drucker

  1. Have people in your organization make a list of the six best employees and why. Do this every three to six months
  2. What can I contribute
  3. What contribution can I expect from you
  4. Meeting. Email an agenda first. That may be all that's needed
  5. If the production line isn't meeting goals. It might be overstaffed and chatty. Not understaffed
  6. Strong people always have strong weaknesses. Staff to the strengths. There is no such thing as a good man. Hire people who are better than you.
  7. Look for top performers in one area not in many
  8. Make jobs that are demanding and big to have a challenge
