BusinessInsider points us to an interesting and little-known story involving Steve Jobs and Donna Dubinsky. Though Dubinsky may not have the same level of name recognition as Jobs, she played an instrumental role at Apple back in the '80s and later helped spearhead the PDA revolution as both the CEO of Palm and one of the co-founders of Handspring.
In an interesting anecdote from the recently released book, Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World, Adam Grant relays how Dubinsky back in the mid-'80s put her job on the line when she went head to head with Jobs over Apple's plans to completely revamp its distribution strategy. While one might reflexively assume that disagreeing with Jobs was a surefire way to get belittled, the truth is that Jobs welcomed disagreement and original thought. In fact, many people close to Jobs have said that Jobs would often disagree with people in an underhanded effort to get them to convince him of an idea.
