TAKING RISKS – Getting Ahead in Business and Life is a personal remembrance of Dr. Walter L. Robb’s remarkable journey from boyhood during World War II through his many leadership roles with one of the world’s great corporations. Every step along the way during his 42-year career with General Electric—from a laboratory scientist to, ultimately, GE’s Chief Technology Officer, Walt demonstrated the value of assessing opportunities and taking well-considered risks to achieve personal and professional goals.

In addition to the interesting histories of places, times, and people, each chapter of TAKING RISKS also includes a valuable selection of lessons learned of benefit to students, parents, teachers, businessmen and entrepreneurs. All based upon Walt’s life experiences, they can provide useful guidelines for achieving success throughout life.
