Walter Isaacson, the fellow who wrote the Steve Jobs biography (he was handpicked by Steve himself) recently wrote a column on Steve Jobs’ leadership methods.
Isaacson is a good person to know some of this stuff as he spent countless hours interviewing Steve himself as well as those who had worked with him in the past and continued to work with him through his final days at Apple.
Fair warning, it’s a long read, but it is a good piece. There is a lot to be learned from it, and there is a lot to gather about how Steve used to run the show. You can read it in its entirety by hitting the link below. Whether you agree with Steve’s notorious management style or not, I think we can all say that he knew how to build a successful company. He proved many times that he wasn’t just a guy who got lucky once.
