Leaders and Bleeders

I have posted once or twice about Steve Jobs’s management style, most recently here. I was recently reminded of a comment that sums up why that style could work for Jobs, but was not one to be generally adopted.

It comes from a 15 year old East End lad, speaking about leadership. He said

“I can stand a leader who is a bleeder but to hell with the  bleeder who pretends to be a leader.”
