Overview

This enhanced digital edition features ten exclusive video commentaries from America's favorite CEO Jack Welch, who shares his trademark straight-talk advice and real-world management philosophy with readers at every level of an organization.

Jack Welch knows how to win. During his forty-year career at General Electric, he led the company to year-after-year success around the globe, in multiple markets, against brutal competition. His honest, be-the-best style of management has become the gold standard in business, with his relentless focus on people, teamwork, and profits.

Now regarded as the bible of business, Winning lays out the answers to the most difficult questions people face both on and off the job—from line workers to MBAs, from project managers to senior executives.

Video commentary from Jack Welch expands on the book's treatment of the real "stuff" of work—the importance of positive energy in a leader, the proper role of HR within an organization, how to lead change effectively, why strategy doesn't have to be rocket science, the potential pitfalls of mergers and acquisitions, how to launch a new business within a big company, and more. The insights and solutions offered in the text, combined with lively video interviews with Welch, will change the way you work, lead, and succeed.

I have now read both books by Jack Welch. After the first, I just had to read the second. I always find it interesting to read about the influential people in America. I recommend this to all people who are wanting to learn how to succeed.

Jack Welch allows his points to be made and used to those of us not quite to the executive level(yet) unlike many books out there. I would recommend it to anyone trying to move up.

Good book filled with lots of experience. It's a book that will serve you well if you're on your way to the top of the corporate structure. As an entrepreneur, however, I like having my own business which this doesn't address. I just bought another book called Stop Working by Rohan Hall that's more suited for people who want to start their own business to become independently wealthy. Both books are excellent however Winning is targeted towards climbing the ladder and Stop Working towards becoming wealthy.

Welch begins Winning with an introductory section called "Underneath It All," which describes his business philosophy. He explores the importance of values, candor, differentiation, and voice and dignity for all. The core of Winning is devoted to the real "stuff" of work. This main part of the book is split into three sections. The first looks inside the company, from leadership to picking winners to making change happen. The second section looks outside, at the competition, with chapters on strategy, mergers, and Six Sigma, to name just three. The next section of the book is about managing your career—from finding the right job to achieving work-life balance. Welch's optimistic, no excuses, get-it-done mind-set is riveting. Packed with personal anecdotes and written in Jack's distinctive no nonsense voice, Winning offers deep insights, original thinking, and solutions to nuts-and-bolts problems that will change the way people think about work.

Thankfully, Jack gets to the source of is business genius. Something that was hinted at but not really well illucidated in "From the Gut". Wonder is Suzy is the difference?

Great read, Jack is one of the greatest of all time, I enjoyed reading his countless stories of success. What a great leader, it is obvious that he puts human capital at the front of his priorities.
