    Former Apple Board Member Talks Steve Jobs' Impact on Disney

    Edgar S. Woolard Jr., who was on Apple's board of directors when it purchased NeXT Software and allowed Steve Jobs to succeed Gil Amelio as CEO, doesn't believe Mr. Jobs will "come in with a heavy hand" at Disney, which purchased Pixar last week.

    The former DuPont CEO, who was one of two Apple board members who survived a 1997 shakeup, told BusinessWeek's Peter Burrows: "I think he will try very hard to identify opportunities, and I think he will listen carefully to what Iger and the Disney management team has in mind, and will add suggestions." He also noted the "good relationship" between the new Disney chief and Mr. Jobs, adding: "If Steve has a good relationship with you, there's nobody better in the world to work with. He trusts you, and he listens, and he bounces his ideas off you. But if he doesn't trust you, it doesn't work."

    As for his own relationship with the Apple CEO, Mr. Woolard said: "He didn't agree with everything I said, but I never found him to be stubborn or unwilling to consider ideas." He also cited "five special characteristics" he found in Mr. Jobs: incredible creativity and vision; perfectionism; the ability to "attract outstanding people to work with him;" willingness to "interact with you and modify his ideas;" and the ability to "just make money."
