Jack Welch and the GE work environment

Jack Welch’s judgement criteria was “Performance” and “Potential” with no regard to trust,

Potential is future performance and hence such an environment where people were pitted against each other was very unhealthy

Environments such as the ones Jack Welch cultivated tend to benefit and celebrate high performers including the ones of low trust

Had it not been for a $300 billion bailout by the government in 2008 , GE would have been history by now
