  13. 13. Learnings  The main learning of Good to Great is that any company can become a great company by systematically implementing key principles mentioned.  Good- to-great companies paid limited attention to managing change. Motivating people or creating alignment.  Good- to-great companies had no big name, tag line, launch event or program to signify their transformations. Charisma can be as much as a liability as an asset. Good- to-great companies paid attention to what to do and what to stop doing.
