Leadership

The focal point of the discussion this week will be the article by Isaacson on Steve Jobs. After reading the assigned chapter in Bateman and Snell, read the assigned articles in this order: Isaacson, Heifetz, and then Keohane. Answer the following questions, and clearly label your answer to each question. Question #1 –
Based on the styles and approaches to leadership discussed by Bateman, Snell, and Konopaske, how would you categorize Steve Jobs as a leader? Don’t try to use all of the categories, but select a model or set of categories that seem useful to you, and apply that to Jobs as described by Isaacson. Tell why this is the des?r?ptive part of the post. Question #2 — Based on your reading of Heifetz and Keohane, briefly indicate what you think they would say about Jobs as a leader. Would they think he is a good model or not? Why? This is the analytic part of the post.
