Jack Welch began his career with the General Electric Company in 1960, and in 1981 became the company's eighth Chairman and CEO. During his tenure, GE's market capitalization increased by $400 billion, making it the world's most valuable corporation. In 1999, Fortune named him the "manager of the century," and the Financial Times recently named him one of the three most admired business leaders in the world today. Upon retiring from GE in 2001, Mr. Welch published his internationally best-selling autobiography Jack: Straight from the Gut. He now teaches at MIT's Sloan School of Management and speaks to business leaders and students around the world.
Suzy Welch, a noted business journalist, is the former editor of the Harvard Business Review and the author of numerous articles on leadership, change, creativity, and organizational behavior. She is currently a contributing editor of O magazine, where she writes about workplace and career issues, and Executive-in-Residence at Babson College's Center for Women's Leadership. Together, Suzy and Jack Welch write "The Welch Way" for BusinessWeek magazine, and their column, through The New York Times Syndicate, appears in more than thirty major newspapers around the world.
