Jack Welch is one of the world’s most famous CEOs and, as this quote shows, a vocal advocate of the important of ‘learning to succeed’.
So the next time anyone should question the benefit of a good L&D initiative, remind them that Jack said that “An organisation’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly is the ultimate competitive advantage”…and who’d dare argue with Jack!?!
Thanks, as always, for reading – see you again tomorrow!
