Final words
Steve Jobs was born on February 24 1955 in San Francisco, California, to two University of Wisconsin graduate students who gave him up for adoption when he was an infant.
Steve was always an intelligent and innovative thinker. You would never believe that he was a prankster and rebelled in elementary school, his fourth-grade teacher needed to bribe him to study.
In 1976, when Jobs was just 21, he and Wozniak started Apple Computer. The duo started in the Jobs family garage.
Mac Computer was developing at an unfathomably quick rate. The numbers were awesome: from 2,500 Apple IIs sold in 1977, 8,000 were sold in 1978, and up to 35,000 in 1979. Remember there were no business for PCs some time recently.
Not actually having had an official position with the company he co-founded, Jobs left Apple in 1985 to begin a new hardware and software enterprise called NeXT, Inc..

In 1996, Apple announced that it would buy NeXT for $427 million. The deal was finalized in February 1997, bringing Jobs back to the company he had cofounded.
Apple was having its most noticeably awful year ever. Steve had been far from Apple for just about 10 years and the CEO of Apple, Gil Amelio, chose to buy NeXT STEP and utilize its working framework to supplant the Mac OS. Steve was once again at Apple.
The iPhone venture began in 2003 — in spite of the fact that bits of gossip about such an item had circulated even before that, with the tremendously built up Apple PDA.

Steve knew that he had to be the best leader possible to his teams as innovation is what distinguishes a leader and a follower

According to Fiedler’s Contingency Model, Steve Jobs would be classified as a task-oriented leader. Task structure, the way tasks are defined, involve specific procedures with specific goals. Steve focused on a small selection of products and made sure the organizational chart was straightforward and streamlined, allowing goals and tasks to be met more efficiently and effectively.

Steve was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs.

Clara worked as an accountant, and Paul was a Coast Guard veteran and machinist. The family lived in Mountain View, California.
As a boy, Jobs and his father would work on electronics in the family garage. a hobby that inpowered confidence, and mechanical skill in his young son. Steve looked upto his father and learned his personality traits and style from him.
In 1971, Steve enrolled at Homestead School where he was introduced to his future partner, Steve Wozniak.
Jobs tested so well, however, that administrators wanted to skip him ahead to high school—a proposal that his parents immediately declined.
Wozniak and Jobs clicked so well: they both shared
common interests.
They funded their entrepreneurial venture by Jobs
selling his Volkswagen bus .
The following year Jobs purchased an animation company from George Lucas, which later became Pixar Animation Studios.
Jobs initially invested $50 million of his own money in the company. Pixar Studios went on to produce popular animation films such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles.
Alternatively, Jobs was not strongly viewed as a relationship-oriented leader. When Jobs took over, a new term was coined by employees,which was known as “Steved”
Overall, Jobs’s relationships were often not pleasant, striking deals was one of his fortes.
Innovation is what distinguishes a leader and a follower. Steve emphasized the importance of teamwork to his employees
Though he made the final decision on product designs, "That’s how I see business," he said. "Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people."
leadership behaviour
When assessed by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Steve Jobs was an ENTJ type, which is a person known to possess qualities such as vision, planning, taking charge, speaking heartily, and having qualities ofa natural leader
Makes people better with agressive visions
Pull things together from different parts of the company
Wants pople to follow him
expectes obedience out of self-interet
Communicates his visions clearly
Working at Apple is what Steve considered a valuable goal
On October 5, 2011, Apple Inc. announced that its co-founder had passed away. After battling pancreatic cancer for nearly a decade, Steve Jobs died in Palo Alto. He was 56 years old.
Steve Jobs was a task-oriented leader, meaning he thrived to achieve specific goals. Hisdeal-making strength is important to illustrate because it has led, in part, to his success as a leader.
