Learning in the 21st Century

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

We all want to learn how to lead, but leadership of others has always been more about the others than self. Now some would say that Jack Welch was more about self than others, but that is not true. More people learned invaluable insights from the famed Crotonville  – GE’s Leadership Development Center. In fact, more leaders of great Fortune 500 companies were GE Alums. Jack Welch’s lessons and perspectives are timeless. Join us on our next show with Dr. Mario Barrett, who is a full-time business Professor at the Jack Welch Management Institute (JWMI). Not only does he have great insights and stories, but he knows how to take the lessons from the past and make them work in today’s fast-paced world.
