"Management is doing things right. Leadership is doing the right things." - Peter Drucker
It was an early morning and a long day of travel. I was sad to leave Shanghai; it was an amazing city and I wanted to spend more time exploring.
Once into Beijing, we left for the Peter Drucker Academy. While I was familiar with Drucker, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from the experience.
Andrew Mak presented an introduction into Drucker and I began to recognize his leadership and management philosophies. My Foundations of Leadership course with instructor Shannon Hampton focused a lot on some of Drucker's principles and philosophies. In addition, the books he wrote were also familiar.
