"It's difficult to think of anyone in business who wouldn't benefit from reading this savvy, engaging cubicle-to-boardroom guide to success." (Publishers Weekly)
Organized, informative, Boring-at-parts/long
Jack Welch is full of energy, and fun to listen to (even when I disagree with him on some things... such as his rather extreme adherence to rigid rules and political ideology.
The only criticism I have, other than the fact he is a RedSocks fan, is that it is not edited very well; the recording, not the book. You can hear Jack breathing between sentences. If you are using really good ear buds, it can be distracting
NO, kind of boring but very hard to listen to. Sometimes the writer shouldn't read it.
This is a great read and candid advice on management and leadership with real life examples and lessons...
Great career Jack, it takes men and women who will sacrifice all to run the big Corporate machines. Not me, I choose a family and a life outside of what was described here. Thank you Jack for letting me see inside the curtain and choosing instead "Normal".
If you want to succeed in anything you want to do why not follow a leader who has done just that and more. Jack will show you how he "won" and how to impliment that in you life or line of work. He's fantastic. I love this book, I reccomend it to all who are looking to "win" in life and in you business!!
Jack Welch, CEO of General Electric, talks about a wide range of topics, including career development (promotions, advancements, personal life), management techniques, business best practises, or globalisation of the economy and how to deal with it/take advantage of it.
Every middle or top manager will benefit from his numerous insights. Jack Welch is always short and to the point. This makes "Winning" an entertaining read with a lot of useful tips one after the other. From effectively managing your people to understanding the benefits of six-sigma, you will be satisfied with the broad range of topics discussed in the book.
The only chapter i fast-forwarded was the chapter about mergers and acquisitions, but only because i feel i don't need this information right now in my career.
When a book writer has a 20-year experience as a CEO of a major American incorporation... you read/listen!
