Kennesaw- Friends, as you know, I am a huge fan of Peter Drucker (The Age of Discontinuity) and Richard Koch (80/20 Principle). Large companies have to adapt to rapid change in our new economy both internally and externally. If you work for a Fortune 500 company, take some time to study how you are going to contribute this year and how you can add measurable value to the bottom line. Like a manager of mine once said, revenue and margin solves most problems. Encourage excellence today.
Kennesaw, GA – GE (www.ge.com) was a great Fortune 500 company long before Jack Welch took over as CEO in 1981. The GE brand has continued to flourish because people are seen as its most valuable asset. Why do other companies routinely select GE senior managers to come run their organizations? Because at its core, GE leverages these two talents of key employees: critical thinking and effective communication.
Encourage excellence today and help others with improving their critical thinking and effective communication.
