When it comes to outstanding leadership, Jack Welch is all about people skills. It's not about what you can do as a leader, but what your team can do. Being able to build excellent teams time and time again is a leader's strongest suit.

"You've got to love your team. You've got to want your team to get promoted."

"As a leader your job is walking around with a can of water in one hand, a can of fertiliser in the other hand - sprinkling it on the seeds, and watching them grow. You'll get some weeds, and you've got to pull those weeds out. Not everyone's going to flourish. Think about that every time."
