In the decade since their blockbuster international bestseller Winning was published, Jack and Suzy Welch have dug deeper into business, traveling the world consulting to organizations of every size and in every industry, speaking before hundreds of audiences, working closely with entrepreneurs from Mumbai to Silicon Valley, and, in 2010, starting their own fully accredited online MBA program, which now has approximately 900 students enrolled.
Over the same time frame, Jack has advised more than 75 companies through private equity, and dozens more in a senior advisory role at IAC. Now, they draw on their experiences to address the biggest problems facing modern management—and offer pragmatic solutions to overcome them.
Going beyond theories, concepts, and ideologies, they tackle the real stuff of work today. When you get down to it, they argue, winning in business is all about mastering the gritty, inescapable, make-or-break, real-life dilemmas that define the new economy, the old economy, and everything in between. Work is a grind. We just got whacked. My boss is driving me nuts. I’m stuck in career purgatory. My team has lost its mojo. IT is holding us hostage. Our strategy is outdated the day we launch it. We don’t know what our Chinese partners are talking about. We’re just not growing.
These are some of the day-to-day issues the Welches take on. Coupled with Jack’s years of iconic leadership and Suzy’s insights as former editor of the Harvard Business Review, their new database of knowledge infuses The Real Life MBA with fresh, relevant stories and equally powerful solutions that every manager at any level can use right now.
All proceeds from The Real-Life MBAbook sales will be donated to fund educational scholarships for low-income students.
Here’s a special exclusive interview with Jack and Suzy Welch:
Listen in to discover:
What it means to be a 21st century leader.
How the ‘generosity gene’ is the greatest indicator of success.
Lessons small business can take from ‘big’ business and vice versa.
What’s it take to build a tiny 4 person upstart and grow it to a community of 8 interconnected businesses with 600+ employees doing over $45 million?
Perhaps some business savvy, quality execution and marketing skills…but the real ‘secret’ is something else altogether…
According to Ari Weinzweig, CEO and co-founding partner of the Zingerman’s Community of Businesses, the biggest breakthroughs on his journey started when he focused internally on managing himself better and consciously tapping his inner compass.
As a leader, your actions and behaviors radiate out and determine the culture of your organization.
In this exclusive interview, Ari will share some of his personal “unconventional secrets” to self management, self-awareness and creativity that’s taken him over 30 years to develop:
12 unconventional techniques to managing yourself with greater effectiveness.
A real roadmap to “personal visioning” (understanding this skill takes what’s in your head and make it a vivid picture for everyone else to make ‘real’).
One simple thing that has exponentially catapulted Ari’s personal growth in the recent years (even after 30 years of personal development work).
A proven way to put an end to perpetual worrying and rumination.
Ari’s mentals tricks for getting past “limiting beliefs and “blocking thoughts”.
Why developing creativity actually goes in complete REVERSE to how you normally learn new skills. (And what you can do to increase your creativity levels immediately after the call.)
How to bring out the maximum creativity of all your employees and talent to naturally flourish.
How Ari prevents “burnout” and the ‘always on’ syndrome even while running 8 separate businesses & more…
Don’t worry — there’s nothing to buy though I absolutely recommend Ari’s new book “A Lapsed Anarchist’s Approach To Managing Ourselves”. I think you’re silly if you don’t add this to your library before or after the call! (Personally, Ari’s first book in his 3-part series of ‘Lapsed Anarchist’s guides’ is one of my absolute favorite books all of time.You can pick up copies at Zingtrain.com)
