Leadership in Action: Jack Welch’s Ten Steps to Success as a Leader
How does one become a successful leader? Arguably, that question is the most common topic in boardrooms and business schools alike. Much of the analysis of this critical issue examines leadership at arm’s length in attempt to define successful leadership through observation. In contrast, the acclaimed business leader, Jack Welch – who Fortune magazine called the “Manager of the Century” for the 20th century – developed a 10-step list for successful leadership based on his experience and 21 years as CEO and Chairman of General Electric. Prof. Danny Szpiro of IEDC – Bled School of Management had the unique opportunity to work closely with Jack Welch while dean of the Jack Welch Management Institute. In this brief MasterClass, Dr. Szpiro will share an overview of the Jack’s 10-steps and discuss both the appeal and challenges of putting them into action.
