Jobs trained me: Zuckerberg

mark-zuckerbergLondon: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerbergrevealed that Apple’s visionary leader Steve Jobs gave him advice on how to improve the social networking site’s focus and make sure the company had the right people in place. Zuckerberg revealed how Jobs coached him on building a management team that is “focused on building as high quality and good things as you are.”

“I had a lot of questions for him. How to build a team around you, right, that’s focused on building as high quality and good things as you are. How to keep an organization focused, right, when I think the tendency for larger companies is to try to fray and go into all these different areas,” Zuckerberg said.

“I think we connected a lot on this level of, okay, Facebook has this mission that’s really more than just trying to build a company, right, that has a market cap or a value. It’s like we’re trying to do this thing in the world. And I don’t know, a lot of it I just think we connected on that level,” he added.

Zuckerberg also said that they talked about “the aesthetics and kind of mission orientation of companies.”
