Administrative Management: Tim showed a great deal of administrative management. When he first came to Apple, Apple was on the down fall of making money, but he came to Apple and focused on improving overall management, he was in charge of many levels. He showed great passion and leadership skills through this management.

  • Opportunity Statue: I think the opportunity statue best fits Tim because throughout his life time he had many opportunities that he took, and if he wouldn't have taken them then he wouldn't be where he is today. Tim grabbed the opportunities that were in front of him before they were too late.
  • Tight rope walker: I think Tim was a tight rope walker because when he took all those opportunities he did not know what the future looked like. He took them knowing that he had to trust what was happening and that is what a tight rope walker does. He trusted himself and the things he was taught.
