Summary of Winning
Copyright © 2005 by Jack Welch, LLC. Summarized by arrangement with Collins Business, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers
Let Jack Welch, former GE chief, be your mentor as you create a winning game plan for your company, department and career.
Jack Welch, former General Electric CEO and chairman, is a legendary corporate mentor. Fortunately for readers, this book (which he wrote with Suzy Welch, his wife) provides a top-tier mentoring session. The book is well paced with a mix of you-are-here details and stories by one of corporate America's savviest minds. Welch is honest about his mistakes and his successes. The book's only shortcoming is the chapter on family-work balance, an area where Welch admits his weaknesses. Otherwise, his corporate policy discussions score an abundance of points. getAbstract highly recommends this book to senior executives and up-and-coming managers alike.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to build your company's values;
- Why your company should differentiate among its employees;
- How to lead;
- How to hire and fire;
- How to compete; and
