Success Stories Best Business Practices Lessons from Jack Welch

Jack Welch, the legendary former CEO of GE, encouraged colleagues to never stop thinking about the need for change. He advised his managers:

  1. Start each day as if it were your first day on the job.

  2. Make whatever changes are necessary to improve things.

  3. Re-examine your agenda constantly. Rewrite it, if necessary. In that way you avoid falling back on old habits.
