    "The Real Leadership Lessons of Steve Jobs"

    The Real Leadership Lessons of Steve Jobs - Harvard Business Review

    by Walter Isaacson, author of book "Steve Jobs"

    A nice business oriented summary of the book.
    The book itself, besides being very well written, is educational...
    Here are the titles of the lessons:
    • Focus
    • Simplify
    • Take Responsibility End to End
    • When Behind, Leapfrog
    • Put Products Before Profits
    • Don’t Be a Slave To Focus Groups
    • Bend Reality
    • Impute ("people do judge a book by its cover")
    • Push for Perfection
    • Tolerate Only “A” Players
    • Engage Face-to-Face
    • Know Both the Big Picture and the Details
    • Combine the Humanities with the Sciences
    • Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish
