The acclaimed authors of Winning show you how to galvanize performance, unleash growth, build "wow" teams, and create a fulfilling career--and have fun while you're at it.

In an economy that is changing so rapidly it can feel impossible to keep up, questions abound: Why do some companies grow and thrive amid the tumult, while others stagnate and stumble? What's the best way to avoid a competitive whack, or to come back from one if you get hit? How can leaders unlock the passion and performance of every person on their team, including the tech "geniuses" whose work they don't fully understand, the "virtual" employees they don't really see or know, and the entrepreneur wannabes with one foot out the door? And on a personal level, you may be asking yourself: Will I ever land the dream job that I am destined for? Or will I forever be stuck in career purgatory? Why is finding the right career suddenly so complicated?

Experts espouse theories and concepts, but when it gets right down to it, winning in business is all about mastering the gritty, make-or-break real-life dilemmas that define the new economy, the old economy, and everything in between. In The Real-Life MBA, Jack and Suzy Welch provide that guidance, drawing on their experiences over the past decade working closely with businesses of every size and in every industry around the world. The result is a book full of fresh, immediately applicable, sometimes even counterintuitive lessons about how to create great organizations, build high-powered teams, and forge fulfilling careers in today's new business environment.

Welch mouths: // Why is finding the right career suddenly so complicated? \\ Because he offshored 80,000 jobs when he was at GE? Because in doing that, he destroyed supporting jobs and employment, plus curtailed many a family's educational possibilities. Because he further destroyed R&D in America? Because he helped turn GE into a private equity/hedge fund? [Nope, not going to read this!] FYI: No one was a bigger loser than Jack Welch when he was a manager at that car company - - he lost them so much money for his technically idiotic decisions.
