Leadership, Apple and Facebook Style

Posted by Nicki Peasley Share Your Voice


In this Entrepreneur article, blogger John Patrick Pullen compares and contrasts the leadership styles of Apple's Steve Jobs and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg. 


  • Desire for more than just money
  • Coldness
  • Hard driving style


  • Jobs' early failure and Zuckerberg's unbridled success
  • Jobs' focus on product and Zuckerberg's focus on people
  • Jobs' privacy (until the end) and Zuckerberg's openness

Examining the styles of two leadership greats shines a light on our personal leadership styles, as well.  How would your people describe you as a leader?  As a human being?  Are they the same?
