When Steve Jobs asked Tim Cook to join Apple, the Californian company was on the edge of collapse.
Cook weighed up the evidence and it quite clearly told him not to take the job, “but my intuition was saying something different.” Cook followed his hunch.
He now leads the most successful tech company in the world.
“You got to… know [a problem] can be solved…” though much of that resolve could be seen as coming down to “faith”.
Apple’s Tim Cook warned start-up entrepreneurs not to put their faith in venture capitalists.
There’s a good reason he does: As a global company, Apple wants to be able to attract the very best employees to its team.
