Talented leaders are quick to recognize other talented leaders. It wasn’t surprising when, on a recent appearance on Fareed Zakaria GPS, Bill Gates discussed the inspirational leadership of his contemporary, Steve Jobs.
Gates revealed that he has never met a person who rivaled Jobs’ ability for, “picking talent and hyper-motivating that talent.
But Gates added nuance to his praise of Jobs, referring to the Apple founder as a “wizard” who “cast spells on people,” mesmerizing employees with his vision and captivating the public. That ability to enchant people enabled Jobs to push his team to work arduous hours and withstand withering criticism from the founder.
