Steve jobs ppp [autosaved]

  1. 1. Digital Leadership  While we can never become Steve Jobs, nor should we strive to be (follow your heart). What we can do is understand what is the greatness of Steve Jobs and, where applicable, apply these principals to help us develop as leaders. Simplify  You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
  2. 2.  The power of “NO” Jobs is just as proud of the many products he killed over the years as the ones that were monumental successes. At one point he worked hard on a device similar to the Palm Pilot, but appropriately killed it to focus on the cell phone market. What resulted was the iPod and iPhone.  It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it. [Fortune, November 9, 1998]
  3. 3.  It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it. [Fortune, November 9, 1998]  It’s not what you say; it’s how you say it. This secrecy helped feed consumers desires for the product once they were revealed  Recognize Good Ideas. Jobs and Apple did not create the computer mouse, podcasting or the touch screen, but they recognized their value and integrated these innovations into their products.
  4. 4.  Shun the Majority. Jobs actions epitomized the mantra of if the majority was always right than we’d all be rich.  Eat Your Own Lunch. Letting go of the familiar and embracing the unknown is a real test of leadership.  Strive for perfection. Right before the iPod launch Jobs also had all the headphone jacks replaced so that they were more “clicky.” Teams
  5. 5.  Small Teams. The original Macintosh team had 100 members. Whenever it reached 101 members they would have to reshuffle and remove someone from the team. Jobs’ belief was that he could only remember 100 names. [Source: Leaner Kahney, The 10 Commandments of Steve,” Newsweek, page 35, September, 2011]
  6. 6.  Follow Your Heart. “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a arrow, I know I need to change something.” He truly led a life of following his heart.
  7. 7.  Steve Jobs and Stephen Wozniak are credited with revolutionizing the computer industry by democratizing the technology and making the machines smaller, cheaper, intuitive, and accessible to everyday consumers. I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates - Steve Jobs
