The author talks a lot about what Jobs did and how he thought but rarely how he actually worked with others. The story seems to be that Jobs did and thought everything. Success stemmed from that, not that he led. Perhaps he was a genius but does genius mean leadership? If you are simply telling everyone else what is correct and know it all then is that leadership? Perhaps the grade school kind of leadership where there was one person in front and everyone followed along. The more modern tale of leadership is more complex and has to do with inspiration, engendering teamwork, empowering etc.
The author tells of how Jobs failed to listen to experts in the medical field and how it may have cost him his life. The lesson - apparently to trust your own judgement only in your field. Good leaders will trust others judgments even in their own field apparently Jobs did not but that is not much of a recipe for other leaders. Leaders do not imagine themselves to be the be all and end all in any field and I imagine that Jobs had a lot of help with a lot of good people at Apple.Read more ›
Readers can expect to take a bit of what Steve Jobs used in his own business to take them and/or their business to the next level. I personal appreciate the short-cut style mindset Steve had at times and how the book displays how easy it is for ANYONE to adapt this mindset to their own circumstances.
5/5 stars for innovative display into the behind the scenes of a mastermind and how others can become more like him.
