John Sculley on Firing Steve Jobs

John Sculley, former CEO of Apple, discusses firing and working with Steve Jobs.  “Do you want to come with me and change the world, or do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of the world.”  Sculley, who had been head of Pepsi, was courted by Jobs to come to Apple and change the world. Sculley speaks respectfully and admirably of Jobs and his power and strength as a leader and someone who was trying to change the world and put a dent in the Universe.  Sculley is portrayed in the Danny Boyle film Steve Jobs by Jeff Daniels. The screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin.  Sculley fired Jobs after a boardroom showdown over the Macintosh.  Jobs, of course, later returned to Apple and transformed it into one of the most valuable companies in business history.
