Product Description

In Winning, their 2005 international bestseller, Jack and Suzy Welch created a rare document, both a philosophical treatise on fundamental business practices and a gritty how-to manual, all of it delivered with Jack's trademark candor and can-do optimism. It seemed as if "no other management book," in the words of legendary investor Warren E. Buffett, would "ever be needed."

Instead, Winning uncovered an insatiable thirst to talk about work. Since the book's publication, the Welches have received literally thousands of questions from college students and seasoned professionals alike, on subjects ranging from leadership and global competition to tough bosses and building teamwork. Indeed, questions about virtually every business and career challenge have poured in—some familiar, others surprising, many urgent and probing, and all of them powerfully real.

Winning: The Answers takes on the most relevant of these questions, and in doing so, its candid, hard-hitting responses expand and extend the conversation Jack and Suzy Welch began with Winning. It is a dialogue that is sure to be both compelling and immensely useful to anyone and everyone engaged in the vital work of helping an organization grow and thrive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read this book. It doesn't matter whether you read Winning. 4 Sep 2007
By tim747 - Published on
Whether you read Winning or not, you should check out this book. I purchased a copy of Winning and due to the fact that I had it autographed by Jack and the book is pretty long, I have never read it. I listened to the audio version and found it had some valuable insights, but a lot of filler. (I have read Jack: Straight from the Gut and was impressed enough to join GE upon graduating college.)

If you like Jack and Suzy's column in Business Week, you will like Winning: The Answers. I was able to finish this book on a 3 hour flight. The book is formatted as concise 1-3 page answers to questions readers of Jack's other works have come up with.

The questions are grouped into the main categories of:
-Global competition (China!)
-Leadership (being a better boss)
-Management Principles and Practices (running a business to win / be successful)
-Careers ("On Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of a Promotion")
The above four categories take up ~200 pages.

The remaining two categories take up only ~40 pages: Privately Held, Winning and Losing.

New and old managers should find the chapters on Leadership, Management Principles, and Career progression very useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continuation of "Winning" 20 Nov 2009
By Maxim Masiutin - Published on
This book is a continuation of "Winning", published in 2005. If you've found "Winning" exciting and thought-provoking, you will like this book too, but to a lesser extent, since it reiterates or illustrates the philosophy laid down in "Winning", and doesn't add any groundbreaking idea of its own. Nevertheless, there are some interesting questions answered, for example how to work for a company run by a family.

This book continues the topic of interpersonal relations within an organization, the topic that was started by "Winning". Both of the books are not about execution or leadership, but about people and how they communicate with each other within an organization, regardless of rank or seniority. It can be applies to the front-line workers and to the bosses. But, nevertheless, we can see a slight shift of accents between the two books. While "Winning" is more dedicated to managers, "The Answer" is more dedicated to ordinary employees. But it doesn't mean that ordinary employees should not read "Winning" before reading "The Answers". Anyway, good books on interpersonal relations within an organization are very scarce. If you like this topic, I can recommend the books by Ronald Heifetz in addition to this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Continuation 9 Jan 2007
By R. Saling - Published on
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
I have the Book Winning in print and CD. After listening to it on CD, I had to get the print edition to write notes in the columns and use it as a reference along with his other book "The Four E's of Leadership". This book is a good contiuation of the conversation. If you are a student of successful leaders this book is worth the price. It gives a few more examples of real world situations.
5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, practical and commonsense advice- a very useful basic management book 28 Mar 2013
By J. M. Fitzpatrick - Published on
This is a useful and inexpensive companion to "Winning"- it's straightforward and easy to read, with good ideas and examples.

It's an ideal short general management text, written by the renowned Jack Welch.

Also, it's more approachable than "Winning", which while it is easy to read and readily digestible, is a much longer and more comprehensive text.

 (What's this?)
first essential trait of leadership is positive energy—the capacity to go-go-go with healthy vigor and an upbeat attitude through good times and bad. The second is the ability to energize others, releasing their positive energy, to take any hill. The third trait is edge—the ability to make tough calls, to say yes or no, not maybe. The fourth trait is the talent to execute—very simply, get things done. Fifth and finally, leaders have passion. They care deeply. They sweat; they believe. &quote;

When you become a leader, success is all about growing others. It’s about making the people who work for you smarter, bigger, and bolder. Nothing you do anymore as an individual matters except how you nurture and support your team and help its members increase their self-confidence. &quote;

Before going any further, though, let’s talk about our definition of leadership. It’s comprised of five essential traits. These traits, by the way, do not include integrity, which is a requirement in any leadership position, or intelligence, which is likewise a ticket to the game in today’s complex global marketplace. Nor do they include emotional maturity, another necessity. These three characteristics are baseline—they’re givens. &quote;
