Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of GE, gives advice on overdelivering and how to keep learning.
[soft instrumental music]…- The way that you came up,…you joined GE right out of college.…You became the CEO when you were 45,…you climbed the ladder,…that doesn't exist as much anymore, if at all anymore.…What do you tell people when they're just starting out?…- Over deliver. Always, never do what your boss asks to do,…do that, that's minimum requirement.…Make your boss smarter every day,…whether you're going to stay in that company…or go to another company.…
Keep learning and keep making your environment smarter.…Keep learning, learning, learning,…and when your boss gives you something,…one of the problems I see all the time…with kids out of school, I teach them all the time,…they like to do the homework.…The homework's what the boss gave you,…that's what they've been doing…for the last 12 years of undergraduate,…four years of graduate or whatever.…Yeah, do that, that's the ticket to the game…but the game is the new and bigger…and better and brighter stuff.…
So I tell my kids this all day, you want to over deliver.…
