Steve Jobs' vision and creativity were integral to Apple's success. But are similar leadership styles shown by local leaders?

It is the rare CEO whose death prompts a public outpouring of grief and memories, but Apple co-founder Steve Jobs wasn’t the average head honcho in the corner office. His impeccable eye for detail and dedication to total user experience was reflected in every Apple product, and his economic chops resuscitated the company from its 1990s lackluster state. That mix of creativity and busienss savvy can be hard to find. Adam Goodman, Director for Northwestern University’s Center for Leadership, joined Eight Forty-Eight to assess the styles of some of Chicago's local leaders - in and out of the business world.
