Nick reflects upon the business wisdom of Jack Welch, the author of ‘Jack: Straight From The Gut’, and ‘Winning’, with a particular focus on leadership, and why we must make the tough decisions in order to ensure that our businesses can grow, and that we remain on a winning path.


  • When we transition to our scale-up phase, it is the movement between being able to work independently versus the ability to build a team and lead effectively.
  • As leaders, we must be able to coach people so that they can advance. Everyone at your organisation is not necessarily thinking about business goals from the viewpoint of a founder.
  • Honesty and transparency in communication is vital. There’s no point in sugar-coating a message when it requires clarity of communication.
  • Our jobs as leaders are to define thew ways in which we intend to win. Our values and behaviours demonstrate how we will get there.


‘I was a real geek for business’

‘You have to make the tough decisions in order for the business to grow’

‘You have to have core principles that will allow you to be successful’

‘You need to say things in a way that cuts through the crap’
