My Mentors’ Lessons from Peter Drucker

Here are five lessons Peter Drucker highlights in the book “Leader to Leader,” that he learned from three mentors. 


  • Treat People Differently, based on their Strengths
  • Set high standards, but give people freedom and responsibility to do their jobs
  • Performance review must be honest, exacting and an integral part of the job
  • People learn the most when teaching others
  • Effective leaders earn respect, but they don’t need to be liked
