Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acknowledged as the outstanding business leader of the late twentieth century, Jack Welch made General Electric one of the world's most competitive companies. This dynamic CEO defined the standard for organizational change, creating more than $400 billion in shareholder value by transforming a bureaucratic behemoth into a nimble, scrappy winner in the global marketplace.

Here, Tichy and Sherman extract the enduring leadership lessons from the revolution Welch wrought at GE. Of these, the most essential is the limitless power of learning. Leadership has its mysteries, but it is a skill that anyone can acquire and enhance. Above all, great leaders select great people and lure them into an endless process of learning and adaptation.

Jack Welch's Six Rules

  1. Control your destiny or someone else will.
  2. Face reality as it is, not as it was, or as you wish it were.
  3. Be candid with everyone.
  4. Don't manage, lead.
  5. Change before you have to.
  6. If you don't have a competitive advantage, don't compete.

Synopsis:

Hailed as the "unofficial GE leadership handbook," this bestseller is a detailed look at how Jack Welch was able to take a venerable and successful old line corporation and transform it into a 21st-century dynamo of innovation.
