By applying Drucker's leadership framework in the present context of today's leaders and those who lead with them, this audiobook is an essential resource for people leading, managing, and working in all three sectors - public, private, and social. Listeners will gain new perspectives and develop a solid foundation upon which to build a successful and bright future. They will learn how to focus on why they are doing what they're doing, how to do it better, and how to develop realistic, motivational plans for achieving their goals.

insightful

this book is short, but the content is great. it applies principles you should be using in being part of a company. Non-profit organizations are hinted by Drucker to be the most effective way to impact society. contrast the skills to a for-profit and those that do well use similar techniques to make great companies.

Nothing new

No new insights here. Very generic stories and anecdotes. May be a good refresher for some and a break through for non profit leaders with little business exposure.

A Great Guide!

I am so glad I took the chance of buying a Peter Drucker book. I now know more about him and I appreciate his genius in management is still being made available to the interested in learning from those that are the old masters. I thoroughly believe we stand on the backs of giants when it comes to knowledge, so I keep seeking to learn about topics that I have an interest in. This book, Five Important Questions, is very informational but yet easy to understand. I am sure to read it again and again.
