Quote of the Week - Jack Welch

Jack Welch is perhaps one of the most recognized and storied names in business today. His rework of GE and basically using the hedgehog principle (from Good to Great, although I'm not aware Jack Welch ever connected it to the book).

I love this picture of one of my boys, in his Cub Scout uniform. As an Eagle Scout myself, I am very proud of my young Scout, and know the impact that Cub and Boy Scouts has on a young boy / man. In fact the Boy Scouts works almost exactly to this quote. When a Cub, the boys are taught by adults who are more knowledgeable and experienced. As they move into Boy Scouts, the leadership and education becomes more about the older boys teaching the younger, with adult guidance. In this way, you start by growing yourself, then you learn to grow others. Vital skills, shared by Jack Welch in this quote. 

Special thanks to my wife, Erin Morey for helping with all these quotes / pics. 

P.S. Sorry about last week's lack of posts. I'm not sure what happened, but what I had scheduled disappeared. I am traveling for a convention, and will make sure there are posts for Wednesday and Thursday this week. My apologies!

  1. Of course when you're a leader, you should still be growing yourself, at least a little bit :)
