DescriptionGoogle leaders Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle discuss the legacy and business wisdom of “Coach” Bill Campbell, the behind-the-scenes mentor to dozens of Silicon Valley’s visionary founders and builders. They will share insights from their new book, Trillion Dollar Coach, an essential guide for creating high-performing teams and companies using the leadership strategies that helped Bill create well over a trillion dollars in market value.
Though Bill Campbell passed away in 2016, his belief that to be a great manager you have to be a great coach lives on through those he mentored. Self-effacing and delightfully profane, Bill was a former football player and coach at Columbia University. He moved west in 1983 to apply the fundamentals of human relationships to business that he learned on the gridiron. Bill put these fundamentals into practice by establishing trust, treating everyone the same, and listening. He taught that “the path to success in a fast-moving, highly competitive, technology-driven business world is to form high-performing teams and give them the resources and freedom to do great things.” His results were spectacular.
