I recently read an article about Steve Jobs in Newsweek (August 29, 2011) by Alan Deustchman. In it, expressed were several key thoughts about his leadership style and practices.
I thought I would share some of them with you:
The X factor:
“Jobs didn’t just create that instilled lust in consumers and enriched his company. He upended entire industries.”
- “extraordinary persuasiveness”
- “rare deal making-ability”
- “fierce perfectionism”
“Jobs has a genius not only for spotting innovation hatched elsewhere but for bringing it to his fans while still astonishing.”
Interesting stuff huh?
