The Real Leadership Lessons of Steve Jobs

The Real Leadership Lessons of Steve Jobs | Leading Choices | Scoop.it

Detailed insights from Walter Isaacson, biographer of Steve Jobs:

 

"In the months since my biography of Jobs came out, countless commentators have tried to draw management lessons from it. Some of those readers have been insightful, but I think that many of them (especially those with no experience in entrepreneurship) fixate too much on the rough edges of his personality. The essence of Jobs, I think, is that his personality was integral to his way of doing business. He acted as if the normal rules didn’t apply to him, and the passion, intensity, and extreme emotionalism he brought to everyday life were things he also poured into the products he made. His petulance and impatience were part and parcel of his perfectionism."

Situational Approach: What Role Do I Play in Matters?

Situational Approach: What Role Do I Play in Matters? | Leading Choices | Scoop.it

Sometimes, we just need to acknowledge a situation. We have those moments, but we pretend it is something that it isn’t. What I mean is, at times, we just want someone to do something without much discussion. However, in order to not hurt feelings, we pretend we want their input, but our expressions communicate frustration. And, the person you want to do something begins to get equally frustrated, and a cycle of frustration moves in quickly.

 

It is time to just be honest with each other! Not all times can we be team-based, but all times we can be respectful.

 

Knowing the difference is leadership.

 

Communicating the difference is leadership.

"In business, the consequences of failing to properly frame or assess an issue can be dire. Often such a misdiagnosis is the result of not having the right information. Though the necessary information is often available, businesspeople sometimes don't know how to find it or don't see it in front of them. The reason? Poor listening skills."

During these times, more than ever, we need to focus on the fundamentals. For leaders, this may relate to adopting and grabbing onto a simple principle: Doing the Right Things Right. This principle adds some balance to an imbalanced world that needs our leadership and focus. This is not a new principle, but it may be time to dust off tried-and-true notions to guide us in our spinning world.
