Jack Welch… on motivating staff

I like this statement from former GE leader Jack Welch, which was contributed during his appearance at the most recent Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit:

“One of the jobs of a leader is to make guys like me feel 64, with hair. Leaders have a gene that says, ‘I love to see people grow. I love to reward people.’ They’re not mean-spirited… They don’t have a lot of envy. Envy is a terrible thing.”
