INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT
For this assignment, I chose a very famous and well known entrepreneur. He, however, had already inspires a few famous people and have single handily help change the landscape of technology for people around the world. No, I'm not talking about the other billionaire Bill Gates (good guess though), but of course I'm referring to the one and only Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computers. He, Steve Jobs is one of the biggest icons in the world of technology in the world co-founder of one of the most important and exciting companies in the world. What catch my attention out the most about the leadership style of Steve Jobs, is that he is very charismatic. People often say there is some sort of "aura" about Steve Jobs which makes well respected and followed. Employees do enjoy working with Steve Jobs, as they feel really inspired, true, happy, focus and important. Steve Jobs does an excellent job keeping everyone on track with the companies (Apple) vision. He can do this by being an excellent charismatic leader, visionary, and focused on the longer term rather than short term.

( The famous pose by Steve Jobs )
Apple has some of the greatest smart minds in the world, which can be quite difficult to manage if you ask me. This indicates that Steve Jobs attracted great minds to work under him. This is an inspiration to me and it would be a dream job to work under him. Let me tell you a little about his background, Steve Jobs was born on February 24th, year 1955, in San Francisco, California. It all started when Jobs mother decided to put him for an adoption, because at the time she was not married and had no money. Later on, she found out that his future parents, Justin and Clara Jobs did not graduate college. So she agreed to sign the adoption papers but only after they promised that they would give him the opportunity to go to college. Steve Jobs grew up in a city called Cupertino, California, USA.

After high school, Jobs went to Reed College in Portland but dropped out due to the very high costs fee. Because he could not afford a dorm room to sleep, so he slept on the floor of his roommate. This is quite sad to know actually. It tells you that he had to go through such hardships in life. At one time, he had only one bottle of coke for lunch. Then later on, Steve managed to get a job at Hewlett Packard. This is where he met Steve Wozniak - who eventually later becomes Jobs co-founder of Apple Computers Inc. Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc, has brought a rare unique talent and leadership that have transformed the world. He and his giant technology company has introduced the most unique and exciting innovation that has brought our society into a new era of technology. There are many personality qualities that helped him became one of the most successful entrepreneur of all time. We can all learn a lot from him. In addition, whether or not you have been successful, Steve Jobs is a great icon to follow by all future businessmen. The first feature that I think is most important and unique is the extraordinary imagination in his head. There’s one thing to imagine your company to grow and take market share from other competitors, but it is another thing to imply that the products and services your company will change the way people communicate, work and live their lives. He built the company under the assumption that Apple's products and services will someday change the future and the world. A remarkable ability to create and design cool technology products (products of everyday use) that people love is like no other entrepreneurs before. He's really a legend in innovative design concepts and interactive. He focuses on the design and its demanding that it be absolutely perfect. It is the belief that design is a key component to developing products that the next generation like. I personally think there is a lot for all of us to be learned here! He was a very passionate and bold when it comes to expanding...
