Whether male or female, we can all glean lessons from the likes of the late Steve Jobs. For example:

“He was someone who did not read the polls, but changed the polls by giving people what he was certain they wanted and needed before they knew it; he was someone who was ready to pursue his vision in the face of long odds over multiple years; and, most of all, he was someone who earned the respect of his colleagues, not by going easy on them but by constantly pushing them out of their comfort zones and, in the process, inspiring ordinary people to do extraordinary things.”

— Thomas Friedman, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winning author
