Jack straight from the gut by Jack Welch( Recording )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This audiobook is vintage Jack Welch: down to earth, powerful, and filled with common sense. As CEO of General Electric for the past twenty years, he has built its market cap by more than $450 billion and established himself as the most admired business leader in the world. His championing of initiatives like Six Sigma quality, globalization, and e-business have helped define the modern corporation. At the same time, he's a gutsy boss who has forged a unique philosophy and an operating system that relies on a "boundaryless" sharing of ideas, an intense focus on people, and an informal, give-and-take style that makes bureaucracy the enemy. In anecdotal detail and with self-effacing humor, Jack Welch gives us the people (most notably his Irish mother) who shaped his life and the big hits and the big misses that characterized his career

'Malcolm Forbes "Best practices usually aren't." 'Christopher Locke, co-author, The Cluetrain Manifesto Rule #49 If it is not right, don't do it; if it is not true, don't say it.
