Câu trả lời:

The businessman I can’t help admiring is Steve Jobs, a co-founder of Apple and the CEO of Pixar. It was he that invented the Macintosh computer and created o lot of innovative simple and stylish devices such as an iPhone, iPad, iPod and iMac. Also, he took part in developing Toy Story, the first feature-length computer-animated film. Although the padded away 10 years ago, he is still one of the most quoted and talked about business leaders in the world.

To tell the truth, it’s very difficult to figure out when and how I found out about him as his name was and still is cited in business books and the Internet is awash with pictures of him. Probably, first I heard about him in connection with the launch of iPhone 4 when people were standing in a line the whole night to be the first owners of these devices. I was truly amazed. This was just a phone. There were many similar phones in the market, but people didn’t stand in line to buy them. This later made me read a book and watch a feature film about his life and his achievements.

From what I know about him, I can conclude that he became so great a leader because he had strong communication and negotiation skills. Also, he could think strategically, which allowed him to see what other people didn’t. And I guess he was excellent at motivating others.

Whether people like him or not, no one can deny the fact that Steve Jobs was an outstanding personality and iconic business leader who could inspire people to follow him and believe in his ideas. For instance, he believed in simplicity and made the whole world appreciate it. What’s more, due to his charisma he managed to surround himself with people who could help create the culture he desired to reach his goals despite all obstacles. But I guess the main reason why he deserves the highest praise is that he wasn’t afraid to challenge the status quo in the world of computers, although there were many people who said he would fail.
