About the book

image3.8/5.0

Nearly 20 years ago, former General Electric CEO Reg Jones walked into Jack Welch's office and wrapped him in a bear hug. "Congratulations, Mr. Chairman", said Reg. It was a defining moment for American business. So begins the story of a self-made man and a self-described rebel who thrived in one of the most volatile and economically robust eras in U.S. history, while managing to maintain a unique leadership style. In what is the most anticipated book on business management for our time, Jack Welch surveys the landscape of his career running one of the world's largest and most successful corporations.

Really interesting book by a very debated character. I know he’s been portrayed like a bit of a dick in the media always, but he came across as a tough, but fair, leader! He also seems very trustworthy and a man of his word 👌 The book has some great one-liners and interesting perspective on running a business. At times it becomes a bit too GE and it feels almost preachy or as if he’s trying to hire you to GE. The end of the book where he discussed his succession process is quite interesting! Overall a great and easy read - but some people will probably be turned off by his GE praise!

Quickly digestible and good read about Jack's transformation of GE and even more interesting his thoughts about the succession process in GE.
