Ed Brenegar on Jack Welch

Former GE CEO Jack Welch has a new book coming out. Ed comments on the excerpt in Newsweek. I particularly like his response to #3.

#3 LEADERS GET INTO EVERYONE’S SKIN, EXUDING POSITIVE ENERGY AND OPTIMISM.
– As Peter Drucker says, "Leaders lead people, not organizations." Leaders have to believe in the people they lead.  They have to care about them in such a way that they want to give their very best to the goals of the organization.  This is why Greenleaf’s servant leadership has garnered such an important place in discussions about leadership. If the leader cannot connect with his or her people in a personal way, then it will be difficult to expect excellence service from them.
