Slide + Executive Summary
Create a vision and then
ignite your organization to make this vision a reality.
Get people so passionate about what they are doing that they
cannot wait to execute this plan. Have great energy, competitive
spirit and the ability to spark excitement and achieve results.
Search for leaders who have the same qualities.
Focus on strategic issues.
Your job is to understand the strategic issues within
each of your businesses where they are going around the key
questions. Know the talent they need to win in those markets and
the amount of capital they need. And make bets.
Your job is to see the big picture. Don't manage every detail.
Don't get caught up in the minutiae or obsess over every detail,
but instead inspire others to execute of your vision. Surround
yourself with great people and trust them to do their job and
contribute their best to the organization.
Involve everyone and welcome
great ideas from everywhere. Anyone can be a leader,
just so long as they contribute, and the most meaningful way for
anyone to contribute is to come up with a good idea. Business is
all about getting the best ideas from everyone. New ideas are
the lifeblood of the organization, the fuel that makes it run.
"The hero is the person with a new idea." There is simply
nothing more important to an organization than expressing ideas
and creating a vision.
Lead by Example. To
spark others to perform, you must lead by example. Jack Welch
mastery of the four E's of leadership – Energy, Energize, Edge,
and Execution – was always in evidence. "He had great energy,
sparked others, had incredible competitive spirit, and had a
record of execution that was second to none. This is a key of
the Welch phenomenon. Had he been lacking in any of the traits
he espoused, he would not have commanded such acclaim.“
Six Rules for
Successful Leadership from GE's Jack Welch
1. Control your destiny, or someone
2. Face reality as it is, not as it was
or as you wish it to be.
3. Be candid with everyone.
4. Don't manage, lead.
5. Change before you have to.
6. If you don't have a competitive
advantage, don't compete.
