In today’s New York Times, Steve Lohr crowned Steve Jobs as Master of Design.
Countless writers and commenters agree to Job’s genius that changed our world with technology.
Lohr’s post points to Job’s growth from mentor in his earlier years – who …
… was notoriously hands-on, meddling with details and berating colleagues.
Yet later, Lohr reflects, at Job’s second stint at Apple he differed, in that he
… relied more on others, listening more and trusting members of his design and business teams.
Mentoring in today’s corporate culture looks a lot like hands-on meddling – that tends to replicate past possibilities and miss genius gateways forward. Have you seen it?
