Andrew Ross Sorkin's Comparing Leaders Speech Examines Big Names
Sorkin says that leaders like Steve Jobs are visionaries, who are responsible for creating great products or coming up with brilliant ideas. Sorkin says that not all leaders are visionaries. Some are better at managing staff. Sorkin claims that these two types of leaders often rely on one another. Visionaries aren't necessarily good at managing people, which is where the second type of leader comes in. Sorkin doesn't believe that one type of leader is better than another.
