This is a recording of Drucker discussing the best ways to handle a universal problem, the boss. Drucker explains that bosses are individuals too, and situations need to be handled accordingly. For example some people prefer to listen while others prefer to read. It is important to know the best way to communicate important matters to your boss specifically. The key is adapting yourself, and remembering that your boss is not a mind reader. It is also important never to surprise your boss, never hide mistakes and problems from your boss, and never to underrate the boss. Drucker also covers some management tools, the problems with meetings, and when you should abandon your boss.
