If you want to see an example of how executive leaders can inject inspiration, fight, and stability across their company and supporters of their products; take an hour and watch Steve Jobs' closing keynote for the WWDC '97.
Note in 1997 Apple was just coming off the ropes. SImilar to an Ali / Foreman or Frazier fight. The web was just starting to mainstream and Microsoft was crushing everyone post Windows 95...
Apple was on an island, no strong network integration, they were really just sitting on the bench watching opportunities gone by. Steve Jobs changed all of this and you can see in his responses to the questioning his passion for not only the company and its new approach bringing laser focus to the customer; but for common sense innovation. So glad I got a chance to see this.
No matter what anyone thinks regarding Steve Jobs and his leadership abilities; his transparency and candidness is a true inspiration to those who aspire to leadership roles within their respective companies. Enjoy!
