Apple "For their part, most Apple employees seem more than satisfied with Cook. He often sits down randomly with employees in the cafeteria at lunchtime, whereas Jobs typically dined with design chief Jonathan Ive. It is a small difference that speaks volumes about how employees can expect to interact with their CEO. At Apple, Jobs was simultaneously revered, loved, and feared. Cook clearly is a demanding boss, but he's not scary. He's well-respected, but not worshiped. As Apple enters a complex new phase of its corporate history, perhaps it doesn't need a god as CEO but a mere mortal who understands how to get the job done." A must-read. Quite fascinating.

I loved Steve Jobs, i think it's rare to find such passion in CEO's at that level, i thought he was a creative and an interested individual, proof of which is shown on the polarising effect he had on people who either love him or hate him, better to be loved or hated than to fade into obscurity or to enact a reaction of 'Meh' from your peers.

There is a third option: some people love your work and some people disagree with your work(think bill gates/mark shuttleworth). Most valuable people go in the third category.
Think about Love/Hate people are they really better than Strongly Agree/Strongly disagree?
