Interview to Jack Welsh about leadership

Interesting interview with Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, talking about his leadership philosophy: define a mission, define the values and behaviours, communicate with candour, reward and train the employees…

According to him, the key to his success is that “he loves to see others succeed. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing people grow… “. This is what leaders should do, create more leaders.

Fostering continuous development

It’s obvious that team leaders surrounded by independent employees will have more time to manage. Therefore fostering continuous development is key to increase autonomy, initiative and a sense of ownership. By asking “what can we learn from that?” or “what can we do next time different to get a better result?”, teams can come up with creative solutions that make the organisation more efficient in the long run.

Here are some questions you can ask yourself:

  • To which extent am I letting fear stop me from delegating responsibility?
  • How much am I supporting the ambitions of my team?
  • Which members of my team are ready to step up a level?
  • Am I allowing the team to find their own best way to do the job?

Why horse-assisted leadership training?

In the last days we have organized two successful sessions of Leadership with Horses. Why have we been delivering horse-assisted leadership training for more than 5 years?

Because:

  • horses help you get out of your comfort zone, which is where you can really learn something new,
  • they demonstrate the effect of your behaviour and this way you can measure the possible difference between intention and impact,
  • they force you to take responsibility (you never blame the horses, if something goes wrong)
  • they magnify how you manifest yourself in real life and this increases your self-knowledge,
  • you face unique challenges and you build confidence whilst overcoming them,
  • you receive immediate and unfiltered feedback that accelerates learning,
  • you see growth and change in a single day and keep a lasting impression,
  • it is an experiential training where you enjoy learning through action.

Thank you very much to all participants for your ideas, contributions, laughter, joy and sincere feelings, as these have been key to make the sessions so special.
