"Welch has done more to advance the body of leadership knowledge than any of his contemporaries. He created a new business lexicon...." --The Wall Street Journal

From the Back Cover

"I can't imagine a CEO who wouldn't benefit from reading this book."
­­Philip Kotler
Northwestern University

The Words, the Ideas, and the Initiatives of History's Most Acclaimed CEO

During the last two decades of the twentieth century, Jack Welch transformed GE from an aging industrial bureaucracy into a diversified global juggernaut. In the process, he added more to the language of modern leadership than any other CEO of his era.

The Jack Welch Lexicon of Leadership organizes more than 250 of Welch's most popular concepts and tools into an accessible­­and ultimately indispensable­­look into the mind and methods of Jack Welch. Never before have all the ideas and strategies of the world's most effective CEO been assembled in one comprehensive volume. In The Jack Welch Lexicon of Leadership you will learn more about:

  • Boundarylessness ­­Guidelines show how you can use Welch's signature concept to create an organization free of turf battles, walls, and other trust-busters and confidence-killers
  • GE's Social Architecture ­­Learn how Welch "self-actualized" GE, valuing intellect over hierarchy as he encouraged employees to share ideas and information
  • Six Sigma­­Discover how Welch used his most sweeping GE initiative to launch a quality revolution that still reverberates around the globe

Jack Welch lived by the belief that one good idea­­no matter who has it­­can change an enterprise forever. Let The Jack Welch Lexicon of Leadership take you inside Welch's most potent ideas and actions and give you the knowledge to understand and apply them in your own organization.

"I can't imagine a CEO who wouldn't benefit from reading this book which highlights the key ideas and actions of one of this century's most remarkable business leaders, Jack Welch."

  • Applies Welch's prescient wisdom to today's demanding global environment­­Examples reveal how Welch's insights can be used to address new problems in any organization, regardless of its size
  • Chronicles the evolution of Welch's leadership thinking­­Wherever possible, dates and chronology help trace Welch's evolution as a leader­­and his strategies which transformed grass-roots ideas into companywide innovations
