A Good Interview

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.

Great preview to book WINNING

Would you listen to Interview with Jack Welch again? Why?

Jack tells it like it is. No fluff and corporate buzz words. Does it take sense, if YES then execute.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Not bad for an interview course of the book

This is pretty much an interview with the author and it's pretty good. I'll start looking forward finding the book though so I can read it

Short interview

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.

just refreshing

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.
thank you

A good complement to the book

This interview is a nice complement to the book "Winning" and I suggest you listen/read the book first (which is a great one).

Nothing about Winning, everything about Jack

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.

Medicore Quality

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.
