Jack Welch describes an ideal leader


Jack Welch-former CEO—“he describes and ideal leader as: somebody who can develop a vision of what he or she wants their business unit, their activity to do and be. Somebody who is able to articulate to the entire unit what the business is, and gain through a sharing of discussion–listening and talking –an acceptance of the vision. And (someone who) then can relentlessly drive implementation of that vision to a successful conclusion.”

Welch also commented , “above all else, good leaders are open. They go up, down and around their organizations to reach people.They don’t stick to established channels. They’re informal. they’re straight with people. They make a religion out of being accessible.”
