Peter Drucker: The Right Kind of Leader

For countless entrepreneurs, Peter Drucker helped define the way people do business. Frequently referred to as the father of modern management, Drucker wrote more than 35 books, in which he discussed management trends and what it means to be a good manager. In his nearly seven decades as an author, consultant, and teacher, Drucker observed a great deal about the leaders that emerged in the entrepreneurial community and found that not all managers are cut out for the world of big business. Recognizing the value of small companies from a management perspective, Drucker said in 1985: "There are people who don't belong in large organizations."
