Author Bruce Rosenstein to Speak About Peter Drucker at Landmark College

PUTNEY, Vt. - Bruce Rosenstein, managing editor of Leader to Leader and author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way and Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker’s Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life, will present a talk at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 16, at Landmark College, about the life and work of Peter Drucker, the father of modern management.

Based on his interviews with and extensive research on Drucker, Rosenstein will discuss how to:

  • Develop a forward-focused mindset in the here-and-now
  • Create the future systematically yet simply as part of your day-to-day work and life
  • Discover and take advantage of “the future that has already happened”
  • Keep yourself in demand and in control of your destiny
  • Begin and build a Create the Future Notebook and Total Life List

Rosenstein's talk will reinforce that the future begins today, and that Drucker’s time-tested principles provide the compass and roadmap no matter where you are in your life’s journey.

Rosenstein is Managing Editor of Leader to Leader, a publication of The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute (formerly the Leader to Leader Institute  and earlier the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management), and Jossey-Bass.

He is the author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way, published by McGraw-Hill in November, 2013, in which Rosenstein praised Landmark College for its innovative and Peter Drucker-like approach to educating students with learning challenges. He wrote:

"Having a school of higher learning that is focused on only this type of student is not only innovative, but fairly revolutionary. And note this Drucker-like comment on its website: 'We embrace students' strengths.' This is an obvious case where weaknesses are minimized, and strengths are built upon. I don't know if Drucker was aware of this school, but I believe he would have approved of the finding and exploiting of a particular niche, a need in society, and creativity and innovation in learning. Plus, his love of learning and realization that different people learn in different ways are at the core of what this school represents. Landmark wants to be a leader and a trailblazer, and its administrators, along with the faculty and students, are certainly creating change, not just managing it."

Rosenstein also wrote Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker's Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life (Berrett-Koehler, 2009). 

He worked for USA TODAY for 21 years, until late 2008, as a librarian and also as a writer about business and management books for the newspaper’s “Money” section. He also served as the first-ever embedded librarian in the news department.

He has studied Drucker's work for nearly 30 years. He wrote extensively about Drucker for more than a decade, for USA TODAY and elsewhere, before the publication of his first book. He conducted one of the Drucker’s final interviews, seven months before his death in 2005.

Since 1996, Rosenstein has taught the Special Libraries/Information Centers course at The Catholic University of America. The Special Libraries Association/SLA announced in June 2012 that he was one of two recipients of the 2012 Rose L. Vormelker Award for "dedication to mentoring, outstanding instruction in graduate school settings, and their own professional achievements."

He has a B.A. from The American University, and a M.S.L.S. from The Catholic University of America's School of Library and Information Science. His website is www.brucerosenstein.com.

Rosenstein’s talk at Landmark College will begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16, in the Brooks M. O'Brien Auditorium in the East Academic Building (EAB).
