To be a leader is one thing, but to be a revolutionary is an entirely different ball game. One of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time, Steve Jobs was an innovator who wore many hats during his storied career. A designer who successfully transitioned his business and entrepreneurship, Jobs was a dynamic thinker unafraid to challenge the status quo. Entrepreneurship and leadership go hand-in-hand, and while some might think leadership is an easy concept to grasp, in reality, very few people have the ability to be not only a leader, but a transformational one.
By now, we are all quite familiar with Jobs’ accomplishments as one of the founders of Apple, but that isn’t what we are talking about today. Instead we are focusing on the lessons behind Jobs’ leadership style, and how they can be effectively applied to many present situations. Nearly a decade after his passing, Jobs’ legacy is still extremely prominent not just in tech, but in business, entertainment, sports, etc. Through the years, Jobs’ was humble enough to share his wisdom and many lessons through multiple speeches (his 2005 Stanford Commencement address remains one of the most iconic deliveries of all-time), videos and panels, providing permanent resources for current and future generations.
