Week 53: Final Edition! Welcome (and farewell) to Drucker Mondays, a 52-week journey through the book, A Year with Peter Drucker: 52 Weeks of Coaching for Leadership Effectiveness, by Joseph A. Maciariello. Each Monday in 2015, we've featured a Drucker fan and his or her favorite snippet from the week's topic. Today is the 53rd and final edition and features a master list and links to all 52 color commentaries.
Don’t miss our no-host Awards Dinner on January 19, 2016, Tuesday 4 p.m., at the San Clemente Pier for the famous $4.00 dinner and spectacular sunset at The Fisherman’s Restaurant. Awards will be given to guest writers in 10 categories, including longest column, shortest column, best photo, earliest submission, and other stuff we haven’t thought up yet.
Week 53: The Final Edition & 5 Ideas for Recycling Drucker Mondays in 2016
Idea #1: Email Drucker Mondays to Your Team Every Monday. Recruit a team member to click on Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, etc. below—and send the link to your team every Monday in 2016.
Idea #2: Drucker Quote-of-the-Week. Recruit a team member to reference the week’s topic and post a quote-of-the-week on your office bulletin board or fridge.
Idea #3: Drucker & Donuts. Pass your book, A Year With Peter Drucker, around the office each week and invite team members to join you for a 10-minute “Drucker & Donuts” discussion on the week’s topic.
Idea #4: Drucker Mondays Marathon. Leverage your Drucker book like a baton and each Monday, a team member passes it along to the person who will do something creative with the following Monday’s topic. Repeat for 51 more weeks!
Idea #5: Ask your Hoopla! Maven (you do have a coordinator of hoopla!, right?) to help you keep Drucker on the front burner throughout 2016.
