Larry Bossidy has had a long and distinguished career serving on the boards of several well known corporations including US global giant General Electric, the aerospace and auto parts corporation, AlliedSignal, and multinational engineering corporation Honeywell.
More recently he has enjoyed a second successful career as an author. His first book "Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done", co-authored with Ram Charan, was a wake up call to corporate America.
In his most recent book (also co-written with Charan), "Confronting Reality: Doing What Matters to Get Things Right", Bossidy continues in the same pragmatic vein.
