This is one of the best interviews I have heard in a long time. The interviewer and interviewee are well suited, and it makes for a genuinely interesting and engaging conversation.
Jack tells it like it is. No fluff and corporate buzz words. Does it take sense, if YES then execute.
Jack talks of honesty, getting the right people on board to run the operation, being realistic and not playing phony boring corporate games. Its about growing the operation and having a conversation.
A little tease, now I need more stories from Welch's WINNING book. A leader is your company energizer, follow the 20/70/10 Rule and give it all you got. Run the business like a man man.
I thought that this interview will talk more deep about the book topic and the main idea. Also I thought since it is a short interview then it will be more focused but this is not the case here.
Anyway it was a 19 minutes interview and free.
It's a quick and free download. Definitely worthwhile.
No, I didn't.
It's free, why not try it.
business books fan
it is nice to hear people who lived it, and loved it.
the nuturing of the top 20 and the 8 hours replacement strategy was an eye opener.
This audio book is a long winded boast about all of Jack's accolades managing GE and contains an accumulation of vague examples of how his experiences managing GE could some how apply to your life (in which he makes very weak connections). The only practical advice he gives comes in the last chapter, when he advises how to advance your career by stating the obvious, corporate ladder brown nosing. Get your direct manager to look good so that when he/she gets promoted, you'll get your promotion. Unless you’d like to support Jack’s retirement, don’t get it, save your credit for something that is more coherent. I'd give it zero stars to bring down it's over inflated rating.
You really pay for what you get. It seems that the interview was scripted way ahead of time.
Jack Welch is about authetic Candor, this interview really lacks that. Although it is mildly informative.
this is a 20 min interview with the author. yet, very good. jack talks about his belifs on HR & budgeting. a good introuction to the book that i cannot find on aduible!
