Jack Welsh on a Love Gene


I recently attended a leadership conference where Jack Welch (former GE chairman and CEO) was asked to describe top people… i.e. top leaders.

In Jack’s characteristically unique style, he answered ‘they have a gene which says’

…I love to see people grow

He went on to explain that while they also have good values, energy and can excite people, most of all they celebrate their people. Top leaders have a generosity of spirit – they’re not mean spirited or stingy, they don’t have a lot of envy, and they celebrate others’ successes.

Well said, Jack.
