Steve Jobs Leadership Skills Breakdown – How To Motivate People

When Steve Jobs returned as the CEO of Apple in 1997, the company was on the verge of bankruptcy. Today, Apple is the most profitable company on the planet, thanks in huge part to Steve Jobs leadership. He was able to motivate employees, turn the company around, and preside over huge developments like the iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

But Steve Jobs is unique in that despite clearly being an effective leader, he was not particularly likeable. Steve Jobs presentation and interview skills were legendary though. In this video we break down exactly what it was that made Steve Jobs such a powerful leader by examining his interviews and speeches. The goal is to use the lessons from his life to learn how to motivate employees and the people in our lives.

  1. This guy puts in a lot of time to find and analyze these clips to get them to fit his narrative. Of course, he spends a lot of additional time writing the narrative.

  2. The problem with this type of person is that they depend on sucess to be convincing. Otherwise they seem ridiculous with their overconfidence. I think with his character traits you become either a very sucessful leader (low chance) or a bitter person with very few friends (high chance).

  3. An interesting topic for a video would be how some dangerously influential people managed to sway people to do things within their vision. For example Jim Jones, or Charles manson.

  4. Steve Jobs used identical methods to Adolf Hitler. Always with great emphasis on passion, repetition, focusing on the enemy as a single entity, conviction of belief, making his people feel safe and secure by exuding strength of will (and speaking about it in absolute uncompromising terms), when speaking of victory doing so to ennoble victory with a veritable divine nature (he adopted techniques used by religious ministers, and even would rehearse his speeches and body language on stage hours before speaking), but also using techniques such as highly emotive body language such that people whom listened and understood were carried with the moment. In all of this, much like Steve Jobs Adolf Hitler also instructed his followers on his techniques and how they can be successful in public speaking, always with an emphasis on the spoken word over the written word. Without the predictable postwar liberal propaganda one generally expects to see with conformists to the postwar status quo, it would be interesting to see you do a video on Adolf Hitlers charisma.

  5. This is value. Some of your videos are stronger correlations than others, but there is something to be considered in each of them. Thanks for sharing your insights. I'll definitely be helping out your view count on these :)

  6. Hi! Your videos are awesome and captivating.The passion you feel towards social dinamics is contagious. Greetings from Argentina. And it would be a pleasure to hear you talking about developing conviction. Bye!

  7. Huh, great points. I've never seen Jobs as a younger guy, but makes sense how he helped build Apple even though he actually relied on others for the technical know-how to develop the products themselves. This makes me wonder if you have made a video on powerful women with charisma yet? (I'll look through previous videos to see, but I gender-differences in displays of power and charisma are topics that are often an issue for those who don't conform to expectations) I have found that women who speak in all or nothing and terms implying certainty are often perceived as pushy, whereas men are often considered visionary for displaying similar traits
