Steve Jobs may be well-known across the world as a successful and a jolly CEO but people who knew the person closely don't hold the same view. Some say that he was not one of the nicest bosses around. Walter Isaacson, a former Chairman and CEO of CNN, also stated to ANI that Jobs was not warm and possibly could have been the world's worst managers. Walter Isaacson also wrote a biography about Steve Jobs. If measured as per success achieved, he might be the best, but we have to think again, as far as his employees' treatment is concerned.
But many would say that a boss is someone who has to be brutal and rude in order to get his and the company's work done. Perhaps, it was such a kind of principle which these CEOs incorporated in their work ethic, which led them to be one of the most successful CEOs of all time. Look at both the companies, Apple and Microsoft, where are they? They are doing some of the best business in the world.
But, being at the helm of the company affairs they could have managed their employees in a better manner when it cam to inter-personal relations. Lakhs of people who worked under the name of Apple and Microsoft must have looked into them as a role model, all the more reason for being better role models.
