Описание

"Success in the knowledge economy comes to those who know themselves - their strengths, their values, and how they best perform." -Peter F. Drucker
Throughout history, people had little need to manage their careers - they were born into their stations in life or, in the recent past, they relied on their companies to chart their career paths. But times have drastically changed. Today we must all learn to manage ourselves.
What does that mean? As Peter Drucker tells us in this seminal article, first published in 1999, it means we have to learn to develop ourselves. We have to place ourselves where we can make the greatest contribution to our organizations and communities. And we have to stay mentally alert and engaged during a 50-year working life, which means knowing how and when to change the work we do.
It may seem obvious that people achieve results by doing what they are good at and by working in ways that fit their abilities. But, Drucker says, very few people actually know - let alone take advantage of - their fundamental strengths.
He challenges each of us to ask ourselves, "What are my strengths? How do I perform? What are my values? Where do I belong? What should my contribution be?"
Don't try to change yourself, Drucker cautions. Instead, concentrate on improving the skills you have and accepting assignments that are tailored to your individual way of working. If you do that, you can transform yourself from an ordinary worker into an outstanding performer.
Today's successful careers are not planned out in advance. They develop when people are prepared for opportunities because they have asked themselves those questions and have rigorously assessed their unique characteristics.

    It's more of an overview, higher perspective and frames of thought. Not so much practical application.

    Excellent source for individuals who want to identify the areas in which they best perform and learn, so that they operate their careers from a position of strength. I must read for starting business owners and entrepreneurs.

    I purchased this book by Peter Drucker in 11-27-2015. This is a Harvard Business Review series about management practice and will influence business today. Each volume ha ideas that has shape best practice and inspired many mangers sound the world and will change how you think about business in the 21st century. History shows us that Napoleon, a da Vinci and Mozart can manage themselves with great success; if you want success history will prove you have the abilities to change your business for success even in a weak economy. What I loved best about this book if the fact that we have to place ourselves where we can make the greatest contribution. In other words, stop trying to fix your weaknesses and concentrate on your strengths. It is imperative that your values and the value of the organization you work for are compatible otherwise it’s best to get out and find where you can use your strengths elsewhere. Find a job or organization where you belong and your life will balance itself out. This is managing yourself! This book is for people who want to create the career path by knowing when to seize opportunities and when to change course. If you are ready for a change this one hour reading will change your life and career for the best in 2016. © 2016 Jackie Paulson
