13 Apr Steve Jobs Knew How to Run a Meeting
I’ve just started reading ‘Becoming Steve Jobs‘ which is fascinating and this video is from that era. Hope you learn as much as I did…
At 31 years old, Steve Jobs left Apple and started NeXT. Here’s an inside look at a company meeting, and what you can learn from it.
Brilliant. Passionate. Overbearing. Impatient.
Steve Jobs’s management style has been described in many ways, both positive and negative. Love him or hate him, there’s no denying what he accomplished: Within a short time, he built the most successful company on the planet.
Before that, though, Jobs was actually forced out of Apple (in 1985). A few months later, he founded another company. This startup, appropriately named NeXT, focused on producing high-powered computers for the higher education industry. A talented team left secure positions at Apple and followed Jobs to his new endeavor–evidence of how much people believed in him.
The following video shows excerpts of a company retreat that Jobs orchestrated during the first three months of the company. And it’s fascinating.
