He was known as the man who invented management. Peter Drucker was a legend who transformed modern business. His teachings formed a blueprint for every leader—teaching them the importance of picking people, focusing on opportunity, understanding needs of the customer and competitive advantages. Drucker believed that talented people were the key to successful organizations.

Drucker also believed that leadership was important for every organization. He defined leadership as "the lifting of a man’s vision to higher sights, the raising of performance to a higher standard, building of a man’s personality beyond its normal limitations."

According to Dr. Bill Cohen, Drucker's first graduate of his PhD program and friend of 30 years, Drucker said if you are a good leader, you help your workers, your knowledge workers and your managers. You help them be the best they can be. This way, the leader, the customers and the organization benefit.
