Jack Welch Leadership Principles

Jack Welch – the former CEO of GE – lays down the following 10 principles for good business leadership in his book, Straight From the Gut:

1. There is only one way – the straight way. It sets the tone of the organisation.
2. Be open to the best of what everyone, everywhere, has to offer; transfer learning across your organisation.
3. Get the right people in the right jobs – it is more important than developing a strategy.
4. An informal atmosphere is a competitive advantage.
5. Make sure everybody counts and everybody knows they count.
6. Legitimate self-confidence is a winner – the true test of self-confidence is the courage to be open.
7. Business has to be fun – celebrations energise an organisation.
8. Never underestimate the other guy.
9. Understand where real value is added and put your best people there.
10. Know when to meddle and when to let go – this is pure instinct.

    I believe character is an integral part of leadership.Even Hitler,Mussolini,Ghengis Khan were leaders,but when you look for character these leaders loose their brilliance.
    Add “character” to the bottomline and then you have true leaders.

    Ultimately, the tribal tattoos for men formed a service record of a criminal’s transgressions. The problem here is that virtually all tribal tattoos for men and most piercings will remain for life.

    I think that what you published made a great deal of sense.
    However, think about this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I am not saying your content is not solid., but suppose you added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Jack Welch Leadership Principles | Great Human Capital is kinda boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write
    post headlines to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it might make your website a little
    bit more interesting.
