“A closely guarded Silicon Valley secret,” renowned business coach Bill Campbell was not an IT guru. He was the coach of a football team and then got into the business world. Over the years, Bill became such an influential executive that Steve Jobs listened to his advice. And the tops from Google say they couldn’t have done it without him.
Campbell’s advice has helped make Google, Apple, Amazon, and Twitter trillions of dollars. He has taught Sergei Brin, Larry Page, Eric Schmidt, US Vice President Al Gore and dozens of other famous people.
The business coach’s protégé – Google executives Jonathan Rosenberg, Eric Schmidt, and Alan Eagle – have compiled Campbell’s guiding principles for mentoring. They shared them in Trillion Dollar Coach to help executives, as Bill did himself:
- create and retain teams of outstanding employees,
- find the right solutions in ambiguous situations,
- develop super-demanded products,
- build trust and loyalty in the team,
- to be a real leader no matter what.
The Trillion Dollar Coach exemplifies the legendary coach’s key tricks with the stories of 80 accomplished executives who have been successful through mentoring Bill Campbell. This best-selling Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and USA Today book will help every executive and entrepreneur go from being a mere manager to being a true leader of mega-effective teams.
“For this book, we interviewed 80 great executives, all of whom believe Bill was key to their success. He guided us as well, personally and as a team, largely overshadowed as Google went from being a daring start-up to one of the most important companies in the world. ”
