News & Opinion: Jack in Newsweek

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 3:56 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture, The Company

Jack was quoted in Newsweek a few weeks ago, in the February 19 issue. The article was about Ram Charan, a long-time consultant to top CEOs and the author of several books--most recently of Know-How: The 8 Skills That Separate People Who Perform From People Who Don't.
The article, The CEO Whisperer, demystifies this nomadic, private man who sleeps in hotels 365 days a year, rarely lectures, and has acted as a quiet consultant to dozens of top executives--most notably Jack Welch, when he ran General Electric.
Here's Jack's quote (we added the spotlight):

P.S. You might not have seen this article in your issue - it was only featured in the Enterprise edition of Newsweek, a special edition for executives and businesses.
