First, a message from Her Worship, Barbara Hall, welcoming the Peter F. Drucker Awards to the City of Toronto.
An address at the time of the third Canadian Drucker Award for innovation. Some thoughts quoted from Drucker about social-sector organisations as the future of America. The speaker's premise that the "social-sector organisations, the stewards of public money and public trust, will have to be well led and well managed." The common challenge affects all three sectors--private, public and voluntary. Three major challenges CEOs will face, having to do with monitoring the quality of leadership, the work force and relationships. The increased difficulty of life and work. New partnerships as the key to success. The reality that "donors no longer reward good intentions; they reward results." A message to the leaders of the voluntary sector. The difficult, demanding and exhilarating role of leading a nation to a new era of compassion, inclusiveness, cohesion and appreciation: managing the dream.
