Stanford GSB has a great video up titled Jack Welch: Create Candor in the Workplace. One of my biggest challenges as an entrepreneur was going from being a product-focused inventor to growth-oriented CEO to overall company builder. In addition to reading a ton of entrepreneur books, I’ve read a number of leadership books and tried to incorporate relevant ideas. Jack Welch’s thoughts on the four types of employees has always stuck with me and here, in this week’s video, he talks about the importance of creating candor in the workplace. Enjoy!
