Being better

Reading Jack Welch's book about being the CEO of GE has me interested in the approach of pushing people to perform. Jack Welch isn't shy about paying the most skilled guy a huge premium.
In today's world where everyone is demanding a more balanced level of reward (so that there isn't that huge gap between the boss and his staff) we can see many companies have been following Jack Welch's example.
Is it working? Well profits in the US have been up a huge amount over the last few years. That must mean it's working!

It seems to me that paying people huge rewards gets them focused on money and shorter term results. However huge profits are not sustainable. We all know about the waves of change.
Perhaps we can smooth them out by getting our CEO to attend to longer term goals.. New situations require different solutions. There is nothing as constant as change

A little about me

To get this Blog going I would like to say a few things about myself.
I am a person that likes to question things. If I make a statement and I'm wrong please don't hesitate to let me know! I love discovering new things by taking in other people's opnions.
Therefore please don't be offended if I say something a little wrong. I have many friends from all over the world who know me in different ways.

On this blog I hope to be relaxed and share with you all my daily thoughts and feelings.

I look forward to enjoying writing and hope you enjoy reading this!
