The Effective Executive. Peter F. Drucker

So I have another note worthy book for anyone looking to become more effective as either an entrepreneur or in their place of business. The Effective Executive: The Definitive Guide to Getting the Right Things Done (Harperbusiness Essentials) by Peter F. Drucker is a classic resource for anyone looking for more exposure into the world of top executives. One of my favorite things about this book is that it came out in the 1960s. Why does this matter you ask? It matters because the fundamental truths that surpass the test of time will read as plain as day. It is also entertaining because it is as though you are taking a peak into the past.

Mr. Drucker has written many pieces but this one stands out as one that many have found informative. You can read all over the net about what the book is about and its contents so I will simply say it reads in a way that will allow you to find more ways in which you can become effective in your place of business. Mr. Drucker maintains that anyone within an organization has the power to be an effective executive and challenges the paradigm that an executive is only at the top of the organization.

One of the things we focus on at Shy Entrepreneur is that the individual is his/her first business and on that idea this book speaks volumes to those who are wondering where they are headed or what direction would be best for them. If you get a chance to check this book out let us know what you think.
