Apple CEO has been named the World's Greatest Leader by FORTUNE. The magazine just published its second annual list of the world's fifty greatest leaders including everyone from Pope Francis to Taylor Swift.

We cast a wide net in assembling our list, which includes leaders without any formal designation, like Wong, as well as elected government officials, CEOs, chiefs of NGOs, clergy, coaches, athletes, artists, and more—all judged on their leadership within their professional domains, industries, or fields of service or governance. To make this roster, it was not enough to be brilliant, admirable, or even supremely powerful (see Moisés Naím’s essay on Vladimir Putin). We set out to find singular leaders with vision who moved others to act as well, and who brought their followers with them on a shared quest. We looked for effectiveness and commitment and for the courage to pioneer. All had to be active in leadership roles, though a long history of leading is something that many on our list share. And only a few are repeats from last year; in each case, he or she had to requalify with new achievements in the past 12 months. We sought nominations for this year’s group from those on last year’s list and from a wide range of leadership experts, then added names turned up by Fortune reporters. We vetted our nominees with appropriate experts and made our judgments.

So why did FORTUNE choose Apple CEO Tim Cook as the world's greatest leader?

"Cook has led Apple so strongly, including in some surprising directions, that he has earned the No. 1 spot on Fortune’s list of the World’s Greatest Leaders. Apple’s stock has hit all-time highs, in Apple Pay and the Apple Watch the company has shown its continued appetite for innovation, and it is gradually becoming more open and outspoken, including on a variety of non-corporate social issues. By announcing that he is gay, Cook also has done something few would have predicted: become a global role model."

Great leader? I still can't watch this video because my iphone doesn't support flash.... WTF. And yes Hitler was a great leader, he managed to convince an entire continent to get his way. Just like apple has convinced the entire world that they are better and right, there is no difference. And you cannot refute that. If you do your gay like Tim!

Admit he is a great leader. You can't watch this video because you refuse to watch it since it's being streamed by html5 like on my Mac for example and I don't even have flash. Ffs man, quit hiding the facts! And yeah right, Hitler was so-called great leader for destruction he tried to bring. He forced everyone to obey him just to get out of trouble except those he hated just like WTF has mind poisoned the defenslless fanboys and making themselves like their education. That enough to tell their resemblance. Enough desperate attempt for excuses. Keep it up, you're as neglected as forest gump.

Nelson Mandela was a way better leader. He's only a great leader because Jobs died, but yea props because he's trying eventhough it's mostly Steve Jobs style.
