Steve Jobs was a genius. He is remembered for his Growth Mindset and as being the Entrepreneurial Father of Start-Ups. He is noted for sitting on his cushion, trusting his intuition, and determining what his customers wanted before they knew they wanted it!

How did he motivate himself and his team? He lived in Beginner’s Mind. He pushed for perfection, bent reality, leapfrogged over that which was not necessary, and never used failure as an excuse to quit. In other words, he trusted his gut and followed his highest excitement.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes… While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

What Students Are Saying

I have never thought of myself a leader. The designation just didn’t resonate, and I thought this class [If Steve Jobs Were Your Coach: Leadership Skills to Thrive] might be an odd fit for me. This class helped me rethink what leadership means to me. I learned that leadership qualities are powerful everyday tools that I can call on to generate energy and shift perspective in any life circumstance! I came away from this course with an array of creative strategies and lenses to choose from, as I meet challenges in my own life and as I work with coaching clients facing their own challenges.
