In the seventies and eighties, GE was the training grounds for overachievers who would go on to head other companies and challenge the status quo. It was Jack Welch who famously said, “I’m desperate to get myself people who are smarter than me…I’m desperately trying to get people with energy. I call them the 4 E’s: Energy, ability to energize people, to execute, get it done, and have edge. And I want passion.
