Jack Welch Speaks: Wisdom from the World's Greatest Business Leader

توضیحات

The world listens when Jack Welch speaks

"Jack Welch has long been one of my heroes. When you read this book you will understand why."-Warren Buffett, Chairman, Berkshire Hathaway

"Jack Welch is a management genius who attacks life as he does business-with unconventional flair, a restless intellect, and no tolerance for phonies. And I'd say that even if he weren't my boss!"-Tom Brokaw, Anchor and Managing Editor, NBC

"Jack Welch describes himself as 'just a man in a room.' Janet Lowe takes us into this room by letting the man speak for himself. Through his own words, it becomes clear why he is listened to and emulated all over the world. Big man, big room. "-Sam Nunn, Former U.S. Senator; Partner, King and Spalding

Here is just a sample of what you'll find inside:

"If someone tells me 'I'm working 90 hours a week,' I say, 'You're doing something terribly wrong.' I go skiing on the weekend, I go out with my buddies on Friday and party. You've got to do the same or you've got a bad deal."

"As I went to bigger pieces of GE, I found bigger bureaucracies, layers and all that stuff and it wasn't friendly. Business was very serious-turf-boxes. Business isn't that. Business is ideas and fun and excitement and celebrations, all those things."


JANET LOWE is the author of the bestselling Warren Buffett Speaks, Bill Gates Speaks, Oprah Winfrey Speaks, and Benjamin Graham on Value Investing (all available from Wiley). Her articles have appeared in such publications as Newsweek, the Christian Science Monitor, the Los Angeles Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle. Ms. Lowe lives in Del Mar, California, with her husband, Austin Lynas.
