9780071457804: Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership: How to Put GE's Leadership Formula to Work in Your Organization

Proven leadership lessons from the author of the international bestseller The Welch Way

Techniques Jack Welch used to create great leaders and drive unprecedented financial performance

Jack Welch and GE used the celebrated 4e model to measure leadership potential and enhance profitability at every level of the organization. Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership delivers a thought-provoking and in-depth analysis of this signature model. Pragmatic and handson, it explains how the model helped Welch to consistently spot 4e leaders--individuals with energy, the ability to inspire others, and the talent to consistently make the difficult decisions and meet financial goals.

Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership reveals how the 4e model helped GE's best and brightest eliminate bureaucracy, hire and promote energetic people, find new ways to increase the organization's customer-centricity, and more. Beyond the nuts and bolts of the 4e model, however, it outlines a step-by-step blueprint anyone can follow to stock an organization with performance-ready leaders and leaders-in-training.

Examples include:

  • How to recognize and encourage each of the 4e's--Energy, Energizers, Edge, and Execute
  • Leadership theories of Drucker, Senge, and others, and how they support and validate Welch's 4e model
  • Seven rules for successfully driving change, and leveraging it to gain long-term competitive advantage
  • Leadership lessons of the 4e all-star executive team
  • Valuable implementation insights on virtually every page, along with a "4e leader to-do" list

Jack Welch is universally recognized as the greatest CEO of his era. In Jack Welch and the 4 E's of Leadership, bestselling author Jeffrey A. Krames examines Welch's seminal 4e leadership model and provides a penetrating and uncompromising look at how to recognize and develop authentic leaders.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 213 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The 4e s of leadership is the leadership model that helped make Jack Welch the greatest CEO of his day, and GE the most valuable corporation in the world. In his 20+ years at the helm of General Electric, Welch transformed a mature manufacturing company into an ageless, services juggernaut. He increased the value of the company more than thirty times over, and under his leadership, GE turned out more Fortune 500 CEO s than any other company in history.He said the smartest people in the world hire the smartest people in the world, but looked for much more than smarts. The 4e s helped him to find and develop leaders that would live up to GE s high-octane, performance-based culture. Those that scored high in all four e categories (e.g. the 4e Leader) were the ones that would help him fulfill his goal of building the world s most competitive organization. The 4E s: Energy . Welch says individuals with energy love to go, go, go . Everyone knows these types, the ones with boundless energy, who get up every day ready to attack the job at hand.High-energy people move at 95-miles-per-hour in a 55-mile-an-hour world. Energisers know how to spark others to perform. They outline a vision and get people to carry it out. Energizers know how to get people excited about a cause or crusade. They are selfless in giving others the credit when things go right, but quick to accept responsibility when things go awry.Edge - Those with edge are competitive types. They know how to make the really difficult decisions, never allowing the degree of difficulty to stand in their way. These are leaders who know how to make what Peter Drucker calls the life and death decisions: hiring, firing and promoting. Execute - This is one of the real keys to the entire 4e Model. The first three e s are essential, but without measurable results, the other e s are of little use to an organization. People who execute know that activity and productivity are not the same thing. The best leaders know how to execute. They know how to convert energy and edge into action and results. Bookseller Inventory # AA39780071457804
