Trillion Dollar Coach: Lessons for Managers by Google's Schmidt, Rosenberg and Eagle
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
Are you a manager or a coach? According to a new book by Google's Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg and Alan Eagle there is little difference.

The Trillion Dollar Coach is a tribute to Bill Campbell. Campbell first coached professional football teams and then coached an immense list of top business leaders of US tech companies. For example, he worked for many years with Steve Jobs and Tim Cook (Apple), Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook), Larry Page and Eric Schmidt (Google), and many other hotshots, before passing away in 2016 at the age of 75.

The essence of Campbell's thinking is that in order to be a top manager in an innovative firm you should act like a team coach. After all, the higher your management position, the more your success depends on making other people (your team) successful. See indeed: Leadership Pipeline.
