Overview

Considered one of the most dynamic CEOs of all time, Jack Welch transformed General Electric from an aging electronics manufacturer beset by foreign competitors into a world-class company that provided superb returns to investors. Even in retirement, Welch's voice is heard around the world, as he continues to address issues such as corporate management and personal and business success.

Now, in this completely updated edition of Jack Welch Speaks, bestselling author Janet Lowe presents the insights, visions, and philosophies that have guided Welch during his extraordinary career at GE and his post-GE life. Throughout these pages, Lowe intersperses her comments with extensive quotes from Welch on executive compensation, business ethics, and other issues that continue to plague corporate America. Lowe also digs deep to find theideas and values that enabled Welch to successfully reposition GE in the global marketplace.

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, Jack Welch Speaks offers an objective assessment of Welch's career—from the management principles that helped him excel to the controversy surrounding his compensation package—and provides lessons in leadership that cannot be found anywhere else. Here's just a sample of what you'll find inside:

"Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you became a leader, success is about growing others."

"When you're running an institution, you're always scared at first. You're afraid you might break it."

"Business is like any game. It has players, a language, a complex history, rules, controversies, and rhythm."

"If someone tells me 'I'm working 90 hours a week,' I say, 'You're doing something terribly wrong.' I go skiing on the weekend, I go out with my buddies on Friday and party. You've got to do the same or you've got a bad deal."

With this book as your guide, you'll not only learn how Jack Welch became one of the world's most-lauded CEOs, but you'll also discover exactly what it takes to achieve unparalleled success in today's dynamic business environment.
