Drucker on Making Decisions

In a piece by Peter Drucker, he said that successful CEOs were effective because they followed the same 8 practices:

They asked “What needs to be done?”
They asked, “What is right for the enterprise?”
They developed action plans.
They took responsibility for decisions.
They took responsibility for communicating.
There were focused on opportunities rather than probelms.
They ran productive meetings.
They thought and said “we” rather than “I”.

What a mouthful! In how many law firms can you say these principles are followed by the leadership? What changes would be needed in your firm to reach the Drucker “goals”? Can you make those changes; in other words, will the culture of your firm permit such changes?
