Series produced by The Drucker Institute

Series image

A show on management and leadership where timely issues meet timeless principles.

The Drucker Institute’s Phalana Tiller hosts this hour-long, monthly interview program that focuses on management and leadership through a lens that is both timely and timeless. Well-known guests—executives, authors, academics and others— discuss topics that spring right from the headlines. At the same time, the conversation is informed by the teachings of Peter F. Drucker, described by BusinessWeek as “the man who invented management.” The program is FREE and available the second Friday of every month.
