General Electric – John F Welch, Jr.

leave a comment »

Jack as he is popularly called raised the market cap of General Electric (NYSE: GE) by about $400 billion over the two decades of his reign at the top post of one of America’s best known faces – GE!

His autobiography http://www.straightfromthegut.com/index/index.html

spells out the roller coaster ride he had and how he moved into the top post at GE where he reigned supreme conquering corporate America by its horns!

I am deeply influenced by his innovative management style and the fact that here was a brutally frank yet such a demanding leader!

I usually like reading up books on corporate CEO’s and people who made it big.

I believe it teaches us the perspective of looking and thinking big picture.
