The Leader to Leader Institute's best-selling The Five Most Important Questions Self-Assessment Tool has helped facilitators, leaders, and consultants guide thousands in unleashing their organizations' full potential in serving their mission and clients. The third edition of this critical resource builds on the original and offers facilitators working with nonprofits and social sector organizations, as well as business and government, a clear and accessible model for helping participants achieve results that align mission, goals, and plans.

At the heart of this tool are Peter F. Drucker's enduring The Five Most Important Questions that facilitators use to lead participants in addressing the critical things that make their organizations viable and valuable entities. When answered thoughtfully and addressed with purpose, these questions take one down a path of organizational transformation that leads to impact and success.

The Facilitator's Guide includes:

  • Steps for designing and conducting an organizational self-assessment, including how to gain commitment and form a team, set goals, gather and analyze data, prepare for and engage in facilitated dialogue, and how to create action by appraising and implementing strategic and operational plans.
  • Workshop preparation including how to deliver two-day, full-day, and half-day workshops, and resources to help you design and prepare a workshop.
  • An introductory workshop script with step-by-step guidance preparing you to deliver the information participants need.

About the Author

Peter Ferdinand Drucker (November 19, 1909 – November 11, 2005) was a writer, management consultant, and self-described “social ecologist.” His books and scholarly and popular articles explored how humans are organized across the business, government and the nonprofit sectors of society. He is one of the best-known and most widely influential thinkers and writers on the subject of management theory and practice. His writings have predicted many of the major developments of the late twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning. In 1959, Drucker coined the term “knowledge worker" and later in his life considered knowledge work productivity to be the next frontier of management.
