In short the style used by Steve Jobs was autocratic and charismatic (Armstrong M. 1993).
Steve Jobs always followed a philosophy of proving himself before taking any new responsibility.
Once the same was done then only he takes on the new position and then make new teams. It
enables good understanding among the team members and thus fostering good results (Adair J,
2006). These were people who knew the industry and could be passionate about Apple (Steve Jobs'
Style: Everything we know about Managing is wrong, n.d).
Analysis of the health of that leader's organization, based upon media information
The company at the time of Steve Jobs is known for innovation and simplicity. The company share
at the time of the leader was on top and company was following a well established direction of
growth. Post the death of Steve Jobs, the company is struggling with innovation and growth. The
company is only upgrading the existing products instead of inventing or innovating the things. This
has resulted in the falling of the shares for the company. The financial results for its fourth fiscal
quarter of 2014 which ran from July 1, 2014 until September 27, the company posted revenue of
$42.1 billion and net quarterly profit of $8.5 billion, or $1.42 per diluted share (adjusted for stock

The Life of Steve Jobs
Steve Paul Jobs was born in San Francisco, California on February 24th, 1955. He was born to
Joanne Schieble, and Abdulfattah Jandali. Both of them were graduates of the University of
Wisconsin. Unfortunately, they gave the unnamed (Steve)son up for adoption. His father,
Abdulfattah Jandali, was a Syrian political science professor and his mother, Jonne Schieble worked
as a speech therapist. Later after they gave Steve up for adoption the married couple had another
child, Mona Simpson. It was not until Steve was 27 that he was able to discover this information on
his biological parents. As an infant, Steve was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs and named Steven P.
Jobs. Clara worked as an accountant and Paul was a Coast Guard Veteran and machinist. The family
lived in Mountain View in California's Silicon Valley. As a boy, Stece and his father Paul would
work on electronics in the family garage. Paul would show Steve how to take apart and reconstruct
them, a hobby which instilled something great into Steve. As time went on Steve preferred to do
things by himself. He was very competitive and tenacious with certain things. However he was not
interested in team sports or other group activites. While Steve being a very intelligent and
innovative kid, his youth was riddled with frustrations over formal schooling. He was a prankster in
elementary school; Some of Steve's teachers even had to bribe him to study. When it came to testing

Steve Wozniak Contributions
Engineer, inventor, computer programmer are three elements that describe Steve Wozniak. Many
people know that Steve Wozniak an engineer of Apple, but he was so much more. As a well known
engineer of Apple, Steve Wozniak, showed Americans that technology could benefit them in their
daily lives. His legacy showed us to don't give up when you fail.
The early life of Steve Wozniak's call to change started when he figured out that people could not
afford to buy a lot of technology, so he wanted to help. His parents taught him to always try his best
in everything he does. His dad, Francis Jacob Wozniak, came from Michigan and was an engineer.

year off to earn money for my fourth year of school. And then my career kept going up." This quote
is showing that he achieved his goal to earn money and use that money to go to college and learn
about technology and engineering. (Seiter, Website) The technology he made and the goals that were
a success were all achievements that he had finished during his lifetime.
Steve Wozniak's career was full of traveling and excitement. Steve Wozniak attended so many
colleges. He first went to Colorado for college in his first year, then De Anza Community College
for his second year, and then for his 3rd year, he went to Berkeley. (Wozniak and Smith, pg 71 and

Steve Jobs
In this ever growing, rapid developing world as we can see today, there are many different
successful leaders. As we know it, leaders are humans just like everyone else. How did they manage
to stand out from the crowd? What did they do to achieve great success for an organization? As of
all the successful leaders in the world, Steve Jobs is one of the successful leaders that managed to
achieve great success for an organization. Therefore, Steve Jobs is the leader that I personally
admire and would like to emulate.
According to Gallo (2011, p. 4), Jobs was named the best–performing CEO in the world by the
Harvard Business Review. Jobs was given the title as he delivered "a whopping 3188% industry

Hence, these are the seven principles and the core principles that Jobs lived by to be a successful
and inspiring leader. I personally admire Steve Jobs as he is one that does things in a very systematic
manner which lead him to his success. Talking about success, in a YouTube video by Jandafrique
(2009), it shows Jobs himself explaining the rules of success. In the video, Jobs quoted, "You got to
love it, you got to have passion". I strongly agree to what Steve Jobs had said because to succeed,
you need to be passionate about what you are doing. A given task would not be a burden to one if
that particular one loved their job. They would enjoy doing every bit of it if they love doing it,
therefore making everything simpler and faster to accomplish. Other than that,"No matter how smart
you are, you need a team of great people" (Jobs cited in Jandafrique 2009) was also quoted by Jobs.
One cannot open an organization and work alone to be successful. It would almost be impossible. As
quoted by John Heywood, "many hands make light work." Therefore, this shows the ways and traits
in which made Jobs an inspiring man.
One of the leadership traits that Jobs go by is his very own saying, "stay hungry, stay foolish" (Jash,
n.d.). The meanings in which I interpreted from the quote, is that one should always be looking out

The Speech Of Steve Jobs
Speeches come in all shapes and sizes, some fantastic, some horrible, some motivational and some
inspirational. The one detail I can tell you there is always a few that will linger and stick around in
your head. These speeches go through history as being remembered and studied for decades. A few
that come to mind happen to be "I have a dream" by Martin Luther King, "Never give up...Don't
ever give up," by Jimmy Valvano and "You've got to find what you love," by Steve Jobs. Each and
every one of these speeches was written by men who were challenged to make difficult decisions in
their lives which would inadvertently affect their future in one way or another.
The most current speech of the four is Steve Jobs' "You've got to find what you love." His speech
targets college graduates of the 21st century. After I read Steve Jobs' speech, I understood the power
of his words. At the beginning, he stated that he, unlike the graduates, never graduated from college;
he dropped out after 6 months. Additionally, he reveals information about himself throughout the
speech, such as being adopted, and the fascination for calligraphy. At the age of 20, Steve and a
friend created Apple, a computer company in his parent 's garage, later to be fired from his own
company. But of course that did not stop Jobs; he ended up creating two more companies called
NeXT and Pixar. Presumably, the scariest time in his life started when he was diagnosed with an

Steve Jobs Motivation
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do
what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you
haven't found it yet, keep looking." (Jobs). A person's life revolves around their ambitions as Steve
Jobs revealed in a 2005 commemorative address at Stanford University. Jobs was not a man who
took his work lightly. In fact, he lived his life so that he impacted the whole world. Steve Jobs'
pursuit of doing great work and loving what he did can be traced through his early life, his time as a
business executive, and even though his legacy, where his ideas live perpetually.
Steve Jobs' life could be described with three words– "Abandoned. Chosen. Special" (Isaacson 27).
First, he was abandoned because his biological parents gave him up for adoption shortly after his
birth. His birth mom, Joanne, demanded that he be adopted by scholarly people of high caliber, yet
she settled for a loving but lower class couple. So it was that Steve was adopted by Paul and Clara
Jobs (Moisescot). Twenty years passed, and it seemed like all Steve would be was abandoned and
chosen. In school, Steve was unmotivated and never completed his homework. One of his fourth–
grade teacher's saw this, so she bribed him with money to get him to accomplish his work. This
method of motivation proved to be effective in obtaining Steve's attention (Hunter 7). Steve

Steve Jobs Rule
A rule to live by. Well what is a rule to live by? This is the rule that suits you the best. It motivates

use to live by is that when life gives you a problem, make the most out of it. This is very important
to me. Life is never a walk in the park. There are always problems that everyone face, whether they
are personal, or global. Many problems such as depression, hunger, or even disability hurt people

Even some of the richest most famous people face problems that they have to overcome. Look at
Steve Jobs, who faced many problems in his life. One of his problems was that when he was the co–
founder of Apple, they fired him at age 30. In a speech that Steve jobs recited at Stanford, he said
"What had been the focus of my entire life was gone, and it was devastating," (Jobs page 3). He
knew this was his problem, because he did not know what to do next. Steve Jobs could have quit
technology forever, but he came back and made a new company of his own. He made the most out
of his problem. In his speech he said "I started a company named Pixar, and fell in love with an
amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the world's first computer
animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world,"
(Jobs page 3). This speech is a key example of this rule to live by. This rule is important, because
even when you are facing a problem, the outcome could still be successful. This is a real life
example of this rule to live by that everyone can relate to. This can tie into fear of failure. Being
fired from Apple rattled Steve Jobs. But when we face a problem I think we all can say it takes us by

The Success Of Steve Jobs
Over the course of 7 years, over 500 million iPhones have been sold worldwide. 122 million Macs
have been sold throughout 28 years, and up until September 2012, 350 million iPods have been sold.
The numbers are immense and still growing, and there are reasons that explain them. To sustain a
company, one that has sold well over 1 billion self–produced units (and counting) (up until today),
for about 21 years total, takes much prudence, determination, and most importantly, leadership.
Steve Jobs, co–founder of Apple, Inc., had all three of those traits, and they were always used for the
better in his company. Jobs got the company back up on its feet after rough stock market shares and
low sales caused by competing companies, and led it to success with increasingly innovative
products that rapidly sold nationally at first, then soon internationally. The new ideas that computers
such as the Macintosh put forward into the computer world has set the standard for computers up
until the current day. Steve Jobs' innovation and leadership led the company of Apple to create
renowned and life–changing products that essentially made the lives of their users easier and
changed the world of technology forever.
Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco and was adopted by Paul and Clara

Analysis Of Steve Biko And Steve Biko
1. Introduction
Steve Biko's political thought draws a significant amount of its ideas from Franz Fanon's political
thought. In fact, Steve Biko – in his only publicised works – often quotes Fanon and his ideas. Both
Biko and Fanon share similarities in their political thought. Such similarity is seen in their belief on
how political emancipation should be achieved. Biko, in similar respect to Fanon, is of the opinion
that mental emancipation is a prerequisite to being emancipated politically. Therefore psychology
and the psyche play a very significant role in the political thought of Steve Biko and Franz Fanon.
This essay will seek to explain, in light of Biko's political thought, how mental emancipation is a
precondition to political emancipation. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Referring again to his book, Biko makes reference to Fanon's writings by saying that the apartheid
government emptied black people's brain of 'all form and content', merely reducing the black man to
'a shell, a shadow of a man' (Biko, 1978: 31). Psychological oppression was very significant to the
apartheid government because 'the most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of
the oppressed' (Biko, 1978: 74). This refers to what Hook (2004: 85) describes as 'psychopolitics'.
Psychopolitics refers to the 'critical awareness of the role that political factors play within the
domain of the psychological' (Hook, 2004: 85). The apartheid government manipulated the minds of
black South Africans in such a way that they viewed themselves as incomplete and insignificant,
especially in relation to the white man. This made the black man easier to oppress politically,
economically and socially.
One could argue that mental oppression or psychological oppression is a precondition to political
oppression, particularly the oppression that occurred in apartheid South Africa. If one accepts such
an idea, one can begin to see the importance of Steve Biko's Black Consciousness Movement. It is
through consciousness that freedom can be achieved by the black man. Mental emancipation is the
necessity for political emancipation. Black Consciousness is what is needed

Their creator, Steve Jobs, oversaw the creation of many of these "extremely personal" and

because we never knew they existed. Although he was often called crazy, but his different ideas and
rebelling personality drove him beyond what many expected of him as he "built" Apple and other

what we know as a great leader? Throughout this paper we will explore these question by using
Steve Jobs as a model. We will also use 3 core concepts from the course material Leadership: A

Steve Jobs Abuse
Steve Jobs was an autocratic leader. He used abuse and threats to motivate Apple employees. Jobs
also made the larger decisions early in the company, by influencing others opinions. As well as
using his own personal vision for Apple products.
First of all Jobs abused employees to encourage them. He would yell obscenities that downgraded
his workers so that they would push themselves further. Debi Coleman, an Apple employee, was
often yelled at by Jobs during board meetings. His words were clear, she wasn't good enough and
neither was her work. Although the criticism was activating it still left the feeling of fear in his
workers, which many autocratic leaders leave with their people so that they follow orders.
Secondly, because, early in Apple history, Jobs would make the larger decisions and use
manipulation to have people agree with him. He had a way of using his charisma to make his own
way of thinking sound better than the opposition's, so that they would agree with him. For instance,

laid out in a more pleasing appearance. This request was thought ridiculous by the engineers
because no one was even going to see the inside of the computers anyways, but Jobs made them
redo the inside for his own aesthetic. This shows that he didn't allow a lot of freedom in Apple and
instead hovered over every detail of the Apple products, which didn't let any of the employees have
a relevant opinion on the product. That is the same as any autocratic leader making sure everyone

their company was in. Their experience and strong–minded will would have led them into taking
those essential decisions.
Any large company should have contingency plans, which will enable them to recover from a
sudden crisis whether internal or external. The chief executive should have a vision initially created
which enables the managers to use and employ in the business. They should be responsible for
planning, organising, coordinating and monitoring. However with any firm, a crisis may occur and
cause the overall downfall of the company. Some adversities cannot be foreseen e.g. external
changes such as social taste, economic negative growth and environmental concerns. It's relatively
easier to deal with internal problems rather than external. Another example of a leader who changed
a company's future is Sir Terry Leahy – Former CEO of Tesco supermarkets. His company struggled

electronics and the way we used to hook up digital chips," Wozniak said. "Very few people,
especially back then, had any idea what chips were, how they worked and what they could do. I had
designed many computers, so I was way ahead of him in electronics and computer design, but we
still had common interests. We both had pretty much sort of an independent attitude about things in

be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come." ("Steve Jobs").
Jobs was born in San Francisco, California on February 24, 1955, to his father, Abdul Fattah and
mother Joanne Carole. His biological parents' family objected to his birth, so later he was adopted
by Paul and Clara Jobs. Since his childhood, Jobs was interested in electronics and technologies
because his father worked as a mechanic. He kept Jobs busy rebuilding electronics. Later, Jobs and
his family moved to Mountain View, California to attend school. He attended Homestead High
School in Cupertino, California. Steve Jobs was never interested in studies and dropped out from the
school ("Steve Jobs").
People still miss Job because he was a visionary. He had the vision to see new technology. He
changed the technologies of the world. He came up with a new operating system Macintosh (MAC)
in 1976. Later, he came up with the iPhone in June 2007. Everyone was amazed by this new

Steve Jobs Essay
Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in Los Altos, California. He is Co–founder, Chairman,
and former CEO of Apple Inc. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak high school friends and both college
dropouts joined together to start Apple Computer in 1976. They are credited for inventing the first
computer for home use. They made it possible for people to have a computer anywhere in their
home, or on an office desk, where previously a single computer took up a whole room. There
creation changed the world. However Steve Jobs didn't change what was in the products but how
they looked, functioned, and what they meant.
In 1776 the Apple I was finished being created. Jobs and Wozniak had spent six months creating the
prototype of the Apple I in a ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
He didn't only pay attention to what was in his products but what they looked like and what they
meant to his buyers. That is how he changed the world, not with what his products have in them, all
of the components of his products are the same as any other out there, but with how they look and
what they make easier in our lives. No one goes out and says oh I'm going to buy a MP3 player
that's only 29.00$, they're going to want to buy Apples iPod even if they have the same software.
When you buy an apple product you're not just buying the actual product your buying what the
product represents. Job's ability to take what he wants in a phone, portable music device, and
computer and make it real and wanted by the masses is a gift.
In conclusion, Steve Jobs changed the world not only with the invention of the Apple II in 76'which
was in collaboration with Steve Wozniak, but with how he thinks. When Job's thinks of the next big
thing in technology he thinks about what he would want. He makes products that make life easier,
they look good and they represent an

Steve Jobs Motivation
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do
what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you
haven't found it yet, keep looking." (Jobs). A person's life revolves around their ambitions as Steve
Jobs revealed in a 2005 commemorative address at Stanford University. Jobs was not a man who
took his work lightly. In fact, he lived his life so that he impacted the whole world. Steve Jobs'
pursuit of doing great work and loving what he did can be traced through his early life, his time as a
business executive, and even though his legacy, where his ideas live perpetually.
Steve Jobs' life could be described with three words– "Abandoned. Chosen. Special" (Isaacson 27).
First, he was abandoned because his biological parents gave him up for adoption shortly after his
birth. His birth mom, Joanne, demanded that he be adopted by scholarly people of high caliber, yet
she settled for a loving but lower class couple. So it was that Steve was adopted by Paul and Clara
Jobs (Moisescot). Twenty years passed, and it seemed like all Steve would be was abandoned and
chosen. In school, Steve was unmotivated and never completed his homework. One of his fourth–
grade teacher's saw this, so she bribed him with money to get him to accomplish his work. This
method of motivation proved to be effective in obtaining Steve's attention (Hunter 7). Steve
maintained this motivation in his

Until the iphone 4. The iphone 4 came out four years ago, and as soon as it hit the market is was
something major. The iphone has been the most influence handset ever made. The music business
starting popping as well. People talked about putting music and phone but it wasn't a possibility
until Jobs added it to the iphone. A standard phone before the iphone had a megapixel of two, but
the iphone brought a whole new meaning to pictures. Now, the iphone has improved tremendously
and everyone loved it.. Yet, nothing much changed until the iphone 7. The iphone 7 has a
"photography" looking photo and everyone loves it without a doubt. Now, consumers also believe
that the iphone 7 ripped them off. Why? Well it doesn't have an earphone jack, so all those
earphones that come with the iphone in years past, also known as the best headphones ever, you can
no longer use. So, Apple literally went from being the best at the beginning to having flaws on the

  • 11. Steve Jobs In this ever growing, rapid developing world as we can see today, there are many different successful leaders. As we know it, leaders are humans just like everyone else. How did they manage to stand out from the crowd? What did they do to achieve great success for an organization? As of all the successful leaders in the world, Steve Jobs is one of the successful leaders that managed to achieve great success for an organization. Therefore, Steve Jobs is the leader that I personally admire and would like to emulate. According to Gallo (2011, p. 4), Jobs was named the best–performing CEO in the world by the Harvard Business Review. Jobs was given the title as he delivered "a whopping 3188% industry adjusted return (34% compounded ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Hence, these are the seven principles and the core principles that Jobs lived by to be a successful and inspiring leader. I personally admire Steve Jobs as he is one that does things in a very systematic manner which lead him to his success. Talking about success, in a YouTube video by Jandafrique (2009), it shows Jobs himself explaining the rules of success. In the video, Jobs quoted, "You got to love it, you got to have passion". I strongly agree to what Steve Jobs had said because to succeed, you need to be passionate about what you are doing. A given task would not be a burden to one if that particular one loved their job. They would enjoy doing every bit of it if they love doing it, therefore making everything simpler and faster to accomplish. Other than that,"No matter how smart you are, you need a team of great people" (Jobs cited in Jandafrique 2009) was also quoted by Jobs. One cannot open an organization and work alone to be successful. It would almost be impossible. As quoted by John Heywood, "many hands make light work." Therefore, this shows the ways and traits in which made Jobs an inspiring man. One of the leadership traits that Jobs go by is his very own saying, "stay hungry, stay foolish" (Jash, n.d.). The meanings in which I interpreted from the quote, is that one should always be looking out and have never ending questions to a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 13. The Speech Of Steve Jobs Speeches come in all shapes and sizes, some fantastic, some horrible, some motivational and some inspirational. The one detail I can tell you there is always a few that will linger and stick around in your head. These speeches go through history as being remembered and studied for decades. A few that come to mind happen to be "I have a dream" by Martin Luther King, "Never give up...Don't ever give up," by Jimmy Valvano and "You've got to find what you love," by Steve Jobs. Each and every one of these speeches was written by men who were challenged to make difficult decisions in their lives which would inadvertently affect their future in one way or another. The most current speech of the four is Steve Jobs' "You've got to find what you love." His speech targets college graduates of the 21st century. After I read Steve Jobs' speech, I understood the power of his words. At the beginning, he stated that he, unlike the graduates, never graduated from college; he dropped out after 6 months. Additionally, he reveals information about himself throughout the speech, such as being adopted, and the fascination for calligraphy. At the age of 20, Steve and a friend created Apple, a computer company in his parent 's garage, later to be fired from his own company. But of course that did not stop Jobs; he ended up creating two more companies called NeXT and Pixar.

And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking." (Jobs). A person's life revolves around their ambitions as Steve Jobs revealed in a 2005 commemorative address at Stanford University. Jobs was not a man who took his work lightly. In fact, he lived his life so that he impacted the whole world. Steve Jobs' pursuit of doing great work and loving what he did can be traced through his early life, his time as a business executive, and even though his legacy, where his ideas live perpetually. Steve Jobs' life could be described with three words– "Abandoned. Chosen. Special" (Isaacson 27). First, he was abandoned because his biological parents gave him up for adoption shortly after his birth. His birth mom, Joanne, demanded that he be adopted by scholarly people of high caliber, yet she settled for a loving but lower class couple. So it was that Steve was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs (Moisescot). Twenty years passed, and it seemed like all Steve would be was abandoned and chosen. In school, Steve was unmotivated and never completed his homework. One of his fourth– grade teacher's saw this, so she bribed him with money to get him to accomplish his work. This method of motivation proved to be effective in obtaining Steve's attention (Hunter 7). Steve maintained this motivation in his ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

One of his problems was that when he was the co– founder of Apple, they fired him at age 30. In a speech that Steve jobs recited at Stanford, he said "What had been the focus of my entire life was gone, and it was devastating," (Jobs page 3).

He made the most out of his problem. In his speech he said "I started a company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the world's first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world," (Jobs page 3). This speech is a key example of this rule to live by. This rule is important, because even when you are facing a problem, the outcome could still be successful. This is a real life example of this rule to live by that everyone can relate to. This can tie into fear of failure. Being fired from Apple rattled Steve Jobs.

The Success Of Steve Jobs Over the course of 7 years, over 500 million iPhones have been sold worldwide. 122 million Macs have been sold throughout 28 years, and up until September 2012, 350 million iPods have been sold. The numbers are immense and still growing, and there are reasons that explain them. To sustain a company, one that has sold well over 1 billion self–produced units (and counting) (up until today), for about 21 years total, takes much prudence, determination, and most importantly, leadership.

Jobs got the company back up on its feet after rough stock market shares and low sales caused by competing companies, and led it to success with increasingly innovative products that rapidly sold nationally at first, then soon internationally. The new ideas that computers such as the Macintosh put forward into the computer world has set the standard for computers up until the current day. Steve Jobs' innovation and leadership led the company of Apple to create renowned and life–changing products that essentially made the lives of their users easier and changed the world of technology forever. Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco and was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs, a young couple graduated from the University of Wisconsin.

In fact, Steve Biko – in his only publicised works – often quotes Fanon and his ideas. Both Biko and Fanon share similarities in their political thought. Such similarity is seen in their belief on how political emancipation should be achieved. Biko, in similar respect to Fanon, is of the opinion that mental emancipation is a prerequisite to being emancipated politically. Therefore psychology and the psyche play a very significant role in the political thought of Steve Biko and Franz Fanon. This essay will seek to explain, in light of Biko's political thought, how mental emancipation is a precondition to political emancipation. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Referring again to his book, Biko makes reference to Fanon's writings by saying that the apartheid government emptied black people's brain of 'all form and content', merely reducing the black man to 'a shell, a shadow of a man' (Biko, 1978: 31). Psychological oppression was very significant to the apartheid government because 'the most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed' (Biko, 1978: 74). This refers to what Hook (2004: 85) describes as 'psychopolitics'. Psychopolitics refers to the 'critical awareness of the role that political factors play within the domain of the psychological' (Hook, 2004: 85). The apartheid government manipulated the minds of black South Africans in such a way that they viewed themselves as incomplete and insignificant, especially in relation to the white man. This made the black man easier to oppress politically, economically and socially. One could argue that mental oppression or psychological oppression is a precondition to political oppression, particularly the oppression that occurred in apartheid South Africa. If one accepts such an idea, one can begin to see the importance of Steve Biko's Black Consciousness Movement. It is through consciousness that freedom can be achieved by the black man. Mental emancipation is the necessity for political emancipation. Black Consciousness is what is needed ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Jobs also made the larger decisions early in the company, by influencing others opinions. As well as using his own personal vision for Apple products. First of all Jobs abused employees to encourage them. He would yell obscenities that downgraded his workers so that they would push themselves further. Debi Coleman, an Apple employee, was often yelled at by Jobs during board meetings. His words were clear, she wasn't good enough and neither was her work. Although the criticism was activating it still left the feeling of fear in his workers, which many autocratic leaders leave with their people so that they follow orders. Secondly, because, early in Apple history, Jobs would make the larger decisions and use manipulation to have people agree with him. He had a way of using his charisma to make his own way of thinking sound better than the opposition's, so that they would agree with him. For instance, he convinced co–founder Steve Wozniak to start selling what was the first edition ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

This request was thought ridiculous by the engineers because no one was even going to see the inside of the computers anyways, but Jobs made them redo the inside for his own aesthetic. This shows that he didn't allow a lot of freedom in Apple and instead hovered over every detail of the Apple products, which didn't let any of the employees have a relevant opinion on the product.

Howard Schultz and Steve jobs would have taken an authoritarian approach towards the situation their company was in. Their experience and strong–minded will would have led them into taking those essential decisions. Any large company should have contingency plans, which will enable them to recover from a sudden crisis whether internal or external. The chief executive should have a vision initially created which enables the managers to use and employ in the business. They should be responsible for planning, organising, coordinating and monitoring. However with any firm, a crisis may occur and cause the overall downfall of the company. Some adversities cannot be foreseen e.g. external changes such as social taste, economic negative growth and environmental concerns. It's relatively easier to deal with internal problems rather than external. Another example of a leader who changed a company's future is Sir Terry Leahy – Former CEO of Tesco supermarkets.

First, he was abandoned because his biological parents gave him up for adoption shortly after his birth. His birth mom, Joanne, demanded that he be adopted by scholarly people of high caliber, yet she settled for a loving but lower class couple. So it was that Steve was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs (Moisescot). Twenty years passed, and it seemed like all Steve would be was abandoned and chosen. In school, Steve was unmotivated and never completed his homework. One of his fourth– grade teacher's saw this, so she bribed him with money to get him to accomplish his work.
