25 Lessons from Jack Welch  Download PowerPoint presentation, pdf e-book

  

As Jack Welch wrote in a letter to shareholders: "In the old culture, managers got their power from secret knowledge: profit margins, market share, and all that... In the new economy, the role of the leader is to express a vision, get buy-in, and implement it. That calls for open, caring relations with every employee, and face-to-face communication. People who can't convincingly articulate a vision won't be successful. But those who can will become even more open because success breeds self-confidence."

Welch believed that great business leaders have to:

>>  possess large doses of energy, and

>>  know how to use that energy to energize others.

Welch moved from meeting to meeting, conveying that message and the host of other ones as well.
