Why was Robert Nardelli known as “little jack”?

Robert Nordelli emulated Jack Welch at GE and this was to such an extent that he came to be known as “Little Jack.”

Like Jack Welch’s finite mindset centered on performance over trust , he too followed the same principles for getting results.

When he was passed over for the CEO of GE he joined as the CEO of Home Depot.There as well his relentless drive for cost cutting all but destroyed the innovation based culture at Home Depot.Eventually he made way for an infinite minded leader at Home Depot.

This has been adopted from Simon Sinek’s book The Infinite Game.
