A Job For Apple

STEVE JOBS

STEVE JOBS

I was sorry to hear that Steve Jobs has had to resign as the CEO of Apple. I don’t know too much about him, but I do love both my Big Screen IMac and my very portable MacBook Air and I will happily look forward to owning an Iphone some day.

Jobs co-founded Apple in 1976 with Steve Wozniak. He was forced out in 1985 and returned to an Apple in 1997 when the company acquired his NeXT and was named permanent CEO in 2000. Jobs took a leave of several months in 2009 for a liver transplant related to pancreatic cancer.

Over this last ten years, Jobs was the hands-on product manager for the iPad, and the iPod and the iPhone. With his vision, involvement and passion for these products, Jobs changed fundamental aspects of how we communicate, how we entertain ourselves and how we gain knowledge.

I found this list of ten unusual things about Jobs that reveals some interesting parts of his personal life and I’ve ordered the book The Steve Jobs Way: iLeadership for a New Generation from the library to find out more about his form of leadership.

It’s tough. The more I learn about Steve Jobs the more I wonder how Apple will fare without him. It is shocking to see nine white males at Apple’s helm. I’ll be watching them closely. Not only are they not diverse, they are not Steve Jobs.
