Michael Grothaus interacted with Tim cook and relates his experience. The world around me disappeared as I read this well-written article. After giving us a glimpse into the man, he ends with this.
No one can ever replace Steve Jobs, the man, the genius. But Apple is not only Steve Jobs, no matter what anyone thinks. Apple is the interns and executive assistants; it’s the retail employees and the designers; it’s the marketing and PR departments, it’s Scott Forstall and Jonathan Ive; Bob Mansfield and Phil Schiller; it’s the dozens of other names you see on all those Apple patents that we talk about every week. Apple is not any single one of these people. It is the sum of them all, run by a leader who possesses enough wisdom to know that everyone in the company matters, that everyone’s concerns are valid and deserve attention. Tim Cook is such a leader.
