Description

Timeless and effective business lessons from 21 top CEOs. Every business leader - from manager to entrepreneur - wants to know the ideas that motivate and inspire the world's most successful CEOs. Boss Talk presents expert advice on critical issues from a wide range of CEOs including Michael Dell, Jeff Bezos, Tina Brown, Ian Schrager, Steve Ballmer, and Sanford Weill. The topics they cover include:

  • Motivating Your Employees
  • Managing Growth
  • Building a Brand

  • Beating the Competition
  • Leading a Successful Turnaround or Transition

    Here's what some of the bosses have to say:
    "You have to get rewarded in the soul and in the wallet. The money isn't enough, but a plaque isn't enough either." - Jack Welch, General Electric Co.
    "Lead by example. If you do that as a CEO, your style will filter down through your team." - John Chambers, Cisco Systems
    "We do a lot of quantitative stuff. But coupled with that is having an employee staff and culture that is inherently interested in what we do." - Tom Freston, MTV Networks
    "Surround yourself with people you trust. You can't run a business over a certain size and sign off on everything." - Emily Woods, J. Crew
