Academic Search Engine Knobull Promotes Steve Jobs' Key Skills For Enhanced Career Success

By: Knobull
BOSTON - Oct. 19, 2021 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull reported, "Collaborators and competitors alike have credited their success to the Apple co-founder, from current Apple CEO Tim Cook to Bill Gates and Elon Musk. Even some of today's students, whether software engineers or not, look to Steve Job's creativity and success for inspiration. Many leaders have opened up about their jealousy of their self-described rival."

In a September 2018 interview with the Wall Street Journal, Bill Gates noted that Jobs always had a natural talent for capturing an audience, even while pitching an underwhelming product.

Jobs died nine months into Meg Whitman's seven-year tenure as CEO of Hewlett Packard — but clearly left a mark on Whitman's leadership philosophy. Less than a year later, Whitman told the Wall Street Journal that she'd be "taking a cue from Apple."

"I don't think we [have] kept up with the innovation," Whitman said. "The whole market has moved to something that is more beautiful…Apple taught us that design really matters."

Jony Ive said, "He was without doubt the most inquisitive human I have ever met." Ive wrote in the Wall Street Journal:  "His insatiable curiosity was not limited or distracted by his knowledge or expertise, nor was it casual or passive. It was ferocious, energetic and restless. His curiosity was practiced with intention and rigor."

Elon Musk, who is sometimes compared to Jobs for his moonshot visions of the future, said in a 2018 interview, he long admired Jobs. His ability to grow Apple by attracting top talent and earn employee loyalty is something Musk said he tries to do at Tesla.

"The ability to have a vision for the future is critical to the success of amy company," Musk explained.

Bob Iger said, "Steve Jobs was an extraordinary visionary, our very dear friend and the guiding light of the Pixar family," Iger said in a 2011 statement after Jobs death. "He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined."

In a 2019 Vanity Fair article, Iger remembered watching Jobs make the pitch to Disney's board for the acquisition of Pixar. "It's hard to imagine a better salesman for something this ambitious," Iger said. "He talked about the need for big companies to take big risks. He talked about where Disney had been and what it needed to do to radically change course. [...] For the first time, watching him speak, I felt optimistic that it might happen."

Bentley concluded, "Public speaking, focus on product design, active curiosity, vision and salesmanship are skills that can greatly boost professional success. We encourage the students who use our support to develop these critical skills that should improve their chances to achieve their long term career goals!"
