The bestselling author of "The Leadership Engine shows how great leaders develop their business knowledge into "teachable points of view" and in turn learn from the employees they are teaching.

Calling this exchange a "virtuous teaching cycle," Professor Noel M. Tichy shows how business builders from Jack Welch at GE to Joe Liemandt at Trilogy create organizations that foster knowledge exchange and how their efforts lead to smarter, more agile companies -- and winning results.

Using examples from GE, Intel, Dell, Southwest Airlines, 3M, Yum! Brands, The Home Depot, Genetech, Trilogy, and many others, Tichy presents and analyzes these principles in action and explains how managers can begin to transform their own businesses into teaching organizations and, consequently, better-performing companies.Read by Ron McLarty

Some good content, but is misleading

  • Book Rating: 2/5

The book starts off to a good start with solid principles. Later, it degenerates into a thinly disguised commercial for "" and the "trinity group". I would consider this book a waste of time. Instead, you would be better served by listening to this audio book: Jack: Straight from the Gut [abr] by Jack Welch, John A. Byrne
