What do you want to hear more about in 2009?

With some 75 blog postings behind us, I wanted to take this end-of-year opportunity to turn the tables and ask you what topics you would like me to tackle in the New Year. In 2008 I devoted most of the postings to describe the inner-workings of the business book industry. The second most covered topic was Peter Drucker and his accomplishments—in order to provide a backdrop to support the publication of my latest book—Inside Drucker’s Brain.

As I look to 2009 I see better things for us. I see an economy that will turn the corner, led by [finally] a bottoming of the housing industry. I see the promise of a new presidential administration that will bear little resemblance to the previous occupants of the White House. However, nothing will happen overnight. Things will have to get worse before they get better.

So I ask you to please weigh in and let me know what you would like to hear more about in the year ahead. I will include some topics below and please feel free to add new topics as well:

* More on how-to-management

* Career advice

* More on Leadership

* Tips on how to manage (e.g. conducting performance reviews)

* Jack Welch and other CEOs

* Business history

* More on Peter Drucker 

* Any other topic or topics (feel free to write in)  

Many thanks for all of your support in the past year. Here’s wishing you and your family a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2009. And once again, please do drop me a note to let me know what interests you the most so that I can include it on my 2009 agenda.

With warm regards,
