I have now read both books by Jack Welch. After the first, I just had to read the second. I always find it interesting to read about the influential people in America. I recommend this to all people who are wanting to learn how to succeed.

Jack Welch allows his points to be made and used to those of us not quite to the executive level(yet) unlike many books out there. I would recommend it to anyone trying to move up.

Good book filled with lots of experience. It's a book that will serve you well if you're on your way to the top of the corporate structure. As an entrepreneur, however, I like having my own business which this doesn't address. I just bought another book called Stop Working by Rohan Hall that's more suited for people who want to start their own business to become independently wealthy. Both books are excellent however Winning is targeted towards climbing the ladder and Stop Working towards becoming wealthy.

Jack Welch is a very impressive leader who brought about very positive change and results during his time at GE. This book is an excellent collection of Welch's thoughts on business and leadership and whether your business is big or small, you are a CEO or a supervisor; you will benefit from reading this book.

I'm a big fan of Jack Welch's leadership and writings. I'm not sure most people have the charisma to actually pull off what he did. But, this book is full of good advice that you should reference as you move through your career.
Neale on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I listened to the audio book read by the author whose accent can be hard to understand sometimes. Some good insights. Much of it is cliched. Lots of lists in terms of 4 rules top do this, or three things to look out for. As always putting the suggestions in to practice is the challenge especially when most examples relate to big-big business

A lot of great stories and great advice for getting ahead at any level of corporate life.

Easy to read; informative; a quick summary on many different topics he attributes to "winning" in business
gable4242 More than 1 year ago
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 nonsense voice, Winning offers deep insights, original thinking, and solutions to nuts-and-bolts problems that will change the way people think about work.

Thankfully, Jack gets to the source of is business genius. Something that was hinted at but not really well illucidated in "From the Gut". Wonder is Suzy is the difference?
