Who does not remember the great late Steve Jobs to returned and made Apple one of the most significant companies of the last two decades. Apple revolutionized the way we operate on our day to day by creating the first smart phone, and initiating apps, and the icloud. Apple was able to succeed because of the vision that Job’s had for his company. He believed in elegant design, and intuitive response from computers, which at the time had never been conceptualize.
How can a man become such a renown leader in our history without having the credentials to do so. Steve Jobs dropped out of college and did not posses the traditional skills to become a successful computer program, yet he was able to revolutionize the computer industry.
Steve jobs posses leadership traits known as openness to experience which is defined as: imaginative, broad-minded, and curious; they seek out new experiences through travel, the arts, movies, sports, reading, and learning about new cultures. He believed in his vision, to incorporate art into all the things he did.
His openness to experience allowed Jobs to be the type of leader that was imaginative, and sought to create a new road rather than follow the status quo. It is his imagination that revolutionize our world, his curiosity that help us communicate easier, and faster than ever before. It is his legacy of an creative leader that we will forever remember.
He is an inspiration to many leaders to follow one-self, and to think out side the box. For a leader does not have to fit in the perfect mold, and we do not need to follow the traditional role to change the world.
“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do,”
-Apple’s “THINK DIFFERENT” commercial, 1997
