What do the leadership styles of Richard Branson and Steve Jobs have in common? If you said ‘absolutely nothing’ you’d be on the right track.
According to most accounts, the styles of Jobs and Branson couldn’t be more different. While Branson is a delegator who mostly leaves his team alone while he concentrates on the big picture, Jobs was a micromanager who was overly brusque and intrusive with his employees. Yet, both of them achieved results in a big way and will be remembered among the greatest leaders of their time.
This contrast creates an interesting question for me around just how important leadership style really is when it comes to achieving great things with your company or your team.
