@vnewman2,

It's sort of the 'trial by fire' approach. You just hope you gain more than you lose in the end.

Not an unstinting admirer but like his wisdom
I am not an admirer of his tendency to denigrate the work of employees when he was unsure himself how to proceed. Perhaps it was necessary in with his complex personality. But I do have one of his sayings on my desk: "It's really clear the most precious resource we all have is time."

Birthdays
My dad would have turned 78 today,  He was also a great entrepreneur and very smart. I miss him.
But the way, I like very much the "dots" quote from Steve Jobs.

Re: Team work VS ......
"When he came back to Apple legend has it he was very tough, even into his final years. So how does that play into Leadership ? Is it leading by fear ?" You make a great point. It would be great to get some perspective from those who worked under him with respect to this - but I'm guessing the people who stuck around despite Jobs' antics could sense they were in the presence of greatness and that if they could weather the hurricane, they would part of something bigger then themselves. And they were right.

Re: Team work VS ......
@nemos: Cooperation and teamwork indeed can take a company to new heights but most employees are focused on how to get promotions, and that takes a long times because a company is not run alone. Not even the CEO can run he company alone. It needs proper teamwork and management.

Re: Team work VS ......
It does really help if you are one of the legends that made gave birth to Apple and if you took the reigns. Apple was bound to succeed under his leadership. The way he understood how people needed a stock computing experience without distractions of any kind, without any bad support of any kind, is amazing. I own three Apple products and I can tell you their support is better than any company gadget I have ever owned.

Re: Team work VS ......
@SachinEE: I agree with you on this one as well. Jobs was a visionary and a winner (maybe not at life). His leadership skills can be found in many employees all around the world, and it takes a tough situation to reveal the real lion among sheep. I have seen most enterpreneurs falling flat on their face when a tough situation arised and I have seen many people rise to their grace during the same dire situation.

Re: Team work VS ......
@ClassC: I too have heard that he was very strict. I have heard a story about how a secretary told Steve Jobs she was late for work because her car wouldn't start – Jobs came back the same afternoon and threw her a set of keys for a brand new Jaguar saying: "Here, don't be late anymore."

Re: Remembering Steve Jobs: Then and Now.
@Kelly: They would because they know and understand what changes Apple has brought into the industry. It has redefined the entire smartphone genre, so much so that every smartphone wants to be the next iPhone outseller. That's success according to me.

Re: Remembering Steve Jobs: Then and Now.
@ClassC Sometimes I also wonder what Apple would have produced by now if Jobs was still around. Even those who aren't Apple fans have to respect his innovation and the contributions he made to technology. Pretty inspiring
