This review is from: Winning: The Ultimate Business How-To Book (Paperback)
I have purchased a significant number of copies this book as it is 'set reading' I provide for most of my high end one:one clients. I came across the book shortly after it was originally released and was struck by the directness and 'edgy' style of the man who achieved so much for the giant GEC. Whilst there are areas which do not travel across the Atlantic too well, the way it challenges is brilliant.
As it is written by a practitioner, rather than an academic, it is right from the core of how to get results and ensure the economic security for a business. Ultimately securing employment for the people who work there, and other stakeholder in wider parts of the economy. There is much that seems tough, if you read the book completely though you realise that the objective of Welch was to provide the opportunity for people to succeed. And if they could not succeed in GEC to help them find their place elsewhere. Direct and truthful - and more copies will no doubt be purchased for future clients.
