15-19 Story 1: Becoming Steve Jobs


Synopsis: Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, was hailed as a genius during his lifetime for the success he and his partner made of the fledgling computer company. However, Jobs was also accused of being a divisive manager who burnt out his employees, and was eventually sidelined at his own company. We talk to one of his biographers about how Jobs changed his ways after he left Apple, and how his experiences with NeXt Computer, Pixar, and becoming a husband and father helped him develop into a savvier, more understanding innovator and leader.

Host: Gary Price. Guest: Rick Tetzeli, co-author with Brent Schlender, of the book, “Becoming Steve Jobs: The evolution of a reckless upstart into a visionary leader.”
