Steve Jobs The Lost Interview: Lessons on Leadership, High Performing Teams and Innovation
Friday 8:00 – 9:00 AM
Whether you are a leader or an aspiring leader, Jobs shares insights on how to engage people, how to share responsibility and how to lead creative minds. He states that he didn’t care if people liked him, it was about the results!
In his usual, high-energy style, Jeff Tobe facilitates discussion amongst attendees (no matter the size of the group and no matter the industry/profession) that he has seen transform businesses. Thought AND Action provoking questions get people re-examining where they are headed and how they lead!
Steve Jobs called them “A Teams” and in this facilitated discussion or keynote, you will hear the leader of APPLE make very clear distinctions between “A” players and his “B” and “C” players. He had very strong feelings about assembling high performance teams. Jobs claimed that “…it’s a self-perpetuating thing. ‘A’ players want to work with other ‘A’ players so they only hire ‘A’ players and the whole team gets better and better.” He also shares his theory of good conflict vs. bad conflict in any team and much much more.
Effective teams increase workplace morale and productivity. Teams that are innovative make fewer mistakes, save money and are more efficient. A recent study of 160 top global companies revealed that within a decade the greatest influence would not come from an individual but from a team. The number one challenge that teams face is that they have trouble blending together because of varying degrees of knowledge and skills held by the team members.
Jeff Tobe’s creative team building fosters group collaboration. His fun and participatory session teaches the lesson that all contributions are important to the whole team. Jeff explores the creation of interdependence in teams and how the most powerful teams foster self-motivation among their members. In the end, everyone realizes that the best teams do not have one great leader, but instead are a team of leaders.
