Curse and cry:
Jobs was a profane man who would publicly castigate your ideas one day and claim credit for them the next, and would resort to crying if no other method worked in getting his way.
Also, make sure the British design guy who imparts that high-end Braun-influenced appearance gets all the raises he asks for.
One of the less toxic things Jobs did at NeXT, which I presume he controlled more than he controlled Apple, was to give most employees about the same salary. When the Apple executives ask what would Steve do, maybe the answer is that he would lower their salaries to that of the engineers (except for, as I said, the design guru who makes stuff that's just a little premium in functionality look mucho premium).
