Create Your Future The Peter Drucker Way

Monday Speaker Series: Bruce Rosenstein


Conversation with


Managing Editor, Leader to Leader; author of
Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way

In this interactive session, Bruce Rosenstein will guide participants through the five-point future planning framework he developed, inspired by the life and work of Peter Drucker (1909-2005), “the father of modern management.” 

We will work individually and in small groups, on several exercises to begin a Creating the Future notebook, a central feature of Bruce’s 2013 book Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way. Key takeaways:

·         Develop and cultivate a forward-focused mindset

·         Understand and plan for “the future that has already happened”

·         Become your own successor through individual success factors

·         Help shape the future of organizations

·         Identify meaningful activities beyond the workplace
