Steve Jobs Used the Power of Encouragement to Achieve

His iPhone prototype had a scratched and chipped screen after just one day in his pocket

Jobs asked Corning Glass CEO Wendell Weeks about the possibility of using glass instead of plastic

Weeks remembered that his company developed decades earlier but never produced an extremely durable product called gorilla glass

In less than six months Jobs said he needed enough gorilla glass to produce millions of iPhones

Weeks argued that the time period was not sufficient to overcome the technical challenges Don't be afraid Jobs said

Weeks described the logistical challenges as you can do it Jobs repeated

A great leader motivates and inspires those around them to accomplish great things by doing what he or she does
