Overview

Proven leadership lessons from the author of the international bestseller The Welch Way

Techniques Jack Welch used to create great leaders and drive unprecedented financial performance

Jack Welch and GE used the celebrated 4e model to measure leadership potential and enhance profitability at every level of the organization. Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership delivers a thought-provoking and in-depth analysis of this signature model. Pragmatic and handson, it explains how the model helped Welch to consistently spot 4e leaders--individuals with energy, the ability to inspire others, and the talent to consistently make the difficult decisions and meet financial goals.

Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership reveals how the 4e model helped GE's best and brightest eliminate bureaucracy, hire and promote energetic people, find new ways to increase the organization's customer-centricity, and more. Beyond the nuts and bolts of the 4e model, however, it outlines a step-by-step blueprint anyone can follow to stock an organization with performance-ready leaders and leaders-in-training.

Examples include:

  • How to recognize and encourage each of the 4e's--Energy, Energizers, Edge, and Execute
  • Leadership theories of Drucker, Senge, and others, and how they support and validate Welch's 4e model
  • Seven rules for successfully driving change, and leveraging it to gain long-term competitive advantage
  • Leadership lessons of the 4e all-star executive team
  • Valuable implementation insights on virtually every page, along with a "4e leader to-do" list

Jack Welch is universally recognized as the greatest CEO of his era. In Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership, bestselling author Jeffrey A. Krames examines Welch's seminal 4e leadership model and provides a penetrating and uncompromising look at how to recognize and develop authentic leaders.

    Insightful!

    Jeffrey A. Krames¿ book adds another paragraph or two to the Jack Welch entry in the annals of business history. 'Neutron Jack' kept people from getting too comfortable, once explaining that it wasn¿t 100,000 General Electric (GE) employees he eliminated, it was 100,000 GE positions. His radioactive personality aside, Welch had remarkable success grooming top corporate leaders. The equity value of companies run by Welch¿s protégés - including GE, 3M, Home Depot and Honeywell - may well exceed some national budgets, so it is interesting to learn what qualities Welch encouraged as a mentor. Welch¿s '4E¿s' of leadership help explain how he generated so much value over the years for his grateful shareholders. Krames extracts leadership ideas from Welch¿s track record and makes them quick and handy. Although the book is more useful than original, we find that the articulation of the 4E¿s, and the profiles of Welch¿s protégés make it a solid addition to any business library.
