“Replace your pursuit of success with the pursuit of contribution.” – Peter F. Drucker

Management guru, Peter Drucker, stressed the importance of contribution. To be a great leader you need to ask yourself how you can contribute to the success of your firm and your people.

What more can you do? What more can you contribute?

From Drucker: “What is the most important contribution I can make to the performance of this organization? What knowledge and skills do I need to acquire? What strengths do I have to put to work?” They become more focused on what skills, talents, and abilities they need to develop through continuous practice which would assist them in fully contributing towards the organization. As a result, they establish standards for themselves based on excellence, ambitious goals, and doing work that has a meaningful impact (Drucker, 1966).

As a firm leader, you establish performance standards for your team. What standards do you establish for yourself, as a partner?
