Cover of: Winning | Jack Welch, Suzy Welch

About the Book

During his forty-year career at General Electric, Welch 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 became the gold standard in business, with his relentless focus on people, teamwork, and profits. Since Welch retired in 2001 as chairman and CEO of General Electric, he has traveled the world, speaking and answering questions. Now, he has written both a philosophical and pragmatic book, which lays out his answers. He begins with his business philosophy, exploring the importance of values, candor, differentiation, and voice and dignity for all. The core of the book looks inside the company, from leadership to picking winners to making change happen; outside, at the competition; and at managing your career--from finding the right job to achieving work-life balance

First Sentence
