    Default Management

    I find myself in need of a bit of guidance regarding managing people and an organization. I think I've got the basics (don't require the gals to wear short skirts and tight, low slung sweaters etc) but I could probably use some advice on the finer points. Is Drucker still considered the gold standard? If so, would perusing "The Essential Drucker" get most of what he was all about?
    There's no such thing as luck, only drunken invincibility. Make it happen.

    Has anyone ever listened to Manager Tools podcasts? My boss at work is a fan, and has been using their concepts, and getting each of us to listen to them as well. I have to admit, there's a lot of interesting concepts that I'm eager to try.
