Product Details

Jack Welch knows how to win. During his forty-year career at General Electric, he led the company to year-after-year success around the globe, in multiple markets, against brutal competition. His honest, be-the-best style of management became the gold standard in business, with his relentless focus on people, teamwork, and profits.

Since Welch retired in 2001 as chairman and chief executive officer of GE, he has traveled the world, speaking to more than 250,000 people and answering their questions on dozens of wide-ranging topics.

Inspired by his audiences and their hunger for straightforward guidance, Welch has written both a philosophical and pragmatic book, which is destined to become the bible of business for generations to come. It clearly lays out the answers to the most difficult questions people face both on and off the job.

Welch's objective is to speak to people at every level of an organization, in companies large and small. His audience is everyone from line workers to MBAs, from project managers to senior executives. His goal is to help everyone who has a passion for success.

Welch begins Winning with an introductory section called "Underneath It All," which describes his business philosophy. He explores the importance of values, candor, differentiation, and voice and dignity for all.

The core of Winning is devoted to the real "stuff" of work. This main part of the book is split into three sections. The first looks inside the company, from leadership to picking winners to making change happen. The second section looks outside, at the competition, with chapters on strategy, mergers, and Six Sigma, to name just three. The next section of the book is about managing your career--from finding the right job to achieving work-life balance.

Welch's optimistic, no excuses, get-it-done mind-set is riveting. Packed with personal anecdotes and written in Jack's distinctive no b.s. voice, Winning offers deep insights, original thinking, and solutions to nuts-and-bolts problems that will change the way people think about work.

[*] Buyers will receive rewards credits (Rewards) to their rewards account as set forth in seller’s listing. In the near future, Public Market plans to launch the Patron token (PTRN), a blockchain-based rewards token. PTRN will exist on the Ethereum blockchain as a store of value and will contribute toward unlocking benefits in our upcoming membership program. Once the PTRN tokens have been made available to the public, your Rewards may be redeemed, at the option of the company, only for PTRN tokens at the then-market value. The PTRN token may then be deposited to your crypto wallet (see Rewards Terms for process). If PTRN tokens are not made available to the public by March 31, 2020, you may request redemption of the amount of Rewards in your Rewards account, and Company will deliver the Rewards to you in the form of, in its discretion, either (a) USD; or (b) an equivalent credit (e.g., Public Market store credit or other value). If the PTRN token is made available to the public, rewards are not redeemable in USD or an equivalent credit. Rewards are available only to US-based buyers using a US shipping and billing address. See How It Works, FAQs and Rewards Terms for more information.
