First of all I didn’t write the article. I posted it to offer a different perspective on Jobs. You get enough of his success stories from everywhere else. But what makes Jobs the man he is includes all of his successes and failures. By blogging this I am not agreeing or disagreeing with his leadership style or how he is as a person. Honestly I don’t give a shit about him at all. I didn’t even care about his death. I just wanted to point out that Jobs is not only the man that the majority of media is portraying him as right now, it can be very misleading.
That said… what you said make absolutely no sense. Just cause jobs did it doesn’t mean all leaders "must encompass the entire field including intimidation, humiliation, criticism etc". And just because he ran a big company, does that make him somehow special so that we should see his failures differently?
