    Jack Welch was perhaps the greatest corporate leader of the 20th century. When he first became CEO of General Electric in 1981 the company was worth $12 billion. Twenty years later it is worth a total of $280 billion. But Welch was more than just the leader of the most successful business in the world. He revolutionised GE's entire corporate culture with his distinctive, highly personal management style: the individual appreciation of each of his 500 managers, the commitment to an informal but driven work style and the ...

Bottom Line And Nothing But....

by exmasher on Oct 5, 2007

I picked up this book because I thought it would be good to know something about someone who has won high acclaim as a CEO. Normally I at least get warm, fuzzy feelings of admiration when reading of someone who has fought through adversity to make it to the winner's circle. One problem...this is a book about leadership and it's impossible to get on that subject without things like loyalty and integrity coming up. He has some good things to say, no doubt. But I would have a hard time following a boss who didn't have the self discipline to leave the room when he first realized he was in danger of cheating on his wife. So intead of savoring what he had to offer I found myself spitting out a lot of bones. Still worth a quick read, but don't expect too much.
