'Lead For The Long-Term' Says GE General Manager
You have to be a constant learner if you want to be a growth leader, said Tina Donikowski, general manager of Propulsion and Specialty Services for General Electric's transportation division. "Lead for the long-term," she told students. "Know that whatever you do today, you will be there to reap the benefits or to deal with the consequences tomorrow." Illustrating her point, Donikowski described challenges her team faced amidst the down cycle of the mining business. Though difficult, she and her colleagues continued to go against the grain and find ways to invest.
