Steve Jobs’ executive assistant reflects on how crisis matured her former boss and wonders if, and when, it will do the same for Zuckerberg.
The question Zuckerberg would perhaps be best served asking himself right now is: What would Steve Jobs do? Will Zuckerberg stay a 13-years-older version of that student who founded Facebook in his dorm room (an image he returned to repeatedly in his testimony) or will he rise to the occasion? Will he take responsibility for the failings of Facebook and his own leadership in order to truly figure out what happened during the 2016 election? Will he ensure that such foreign intervention and manipulation never happen again? One hopes he will choose the latter path, for if Steve Jobs had given up on Apple when it was not doing well, think of the innovation that would have been missed.
