Format: Hardcover
I greatly admire Krames’s previous books, notably The Welch Way: 24 Lessons From The World's Greatest CEO and What the Best CEOs Know: 7 Exceptional Leaders and Their Lessons for Transforming Any Business. He is an exceptionally clear and insightful thinker. In this volume, Krames focuses on the “4E Leadership Model,” an abbreviation of “The GE Authentic Leadership Model” which Welch introduced to GE almost ten years ago. Previously, Welch had stressed Head, Heart, and Guts. Eventually, he recognized the need for a more fully developed concept which could guide and inform the development of leaders within the GE organization. It should also be noted that he hired Noel Tichy to head up a management training center for GE to which Welch then committed about 20% of his time.
Welch believed that there are essentially four different types of leaders: Type A’s live the values and make the numbers, Type B’s live the values but do not always make the numbers, and Type C’s do not live the values but may make the numbers. To Welch, the A’s were GE’s “best and brightest,” the B’s were the ones who received the most intensive training, and (with very few exceptions) C’s were strongly advised to seek new career opportunities elsewhere. Welch discusses all this in his own recently published book, Winning. Here are some brief excerpts:
“The first E is positive energy. For example, they start the day with enthusiasm and usually end it that way too, rarely seeming to tire in the middle. They don’t complain about working hard; they love to work. They love to play. People with positive energy just enjoy life.
“The second E is the ability to energize others.

Format: Hardcover
Jeffrey A. Krames' book adds another paragraph or two to the Jack Welch entry in the annals of business history. "Neutron Jack" kept people from getting too comfortable, once explaining that it wasn't 100,000 General Electric (GE) employees he eliminated, it was 100,000 GE positions. His radioactive personality aside, Welch had remarkable success grooming top corporate leaders. The equity value of companies run by Welch's protégés - including GE, 3M, Home Depot and Honeywell - may well exceed some national budgets, so it is interesting to learn what qualities Welch encouraged as a mentor. Welch's "4E's" of leadership help explain how he generated so much value over the years for his grateful shareholders. Krames extracts leadership ideas from Welch's track record and makes them quick and handy. Although the book is more useful than original, we find that the articulation of the 4E's, and the profiles of Welch's protégés make it a solid addition to any business library.
