Description

The team behind How Google Works returns with management lessons from legendary coach and business executive Bill Campbell, whose mentoring of some of our most successful modern entrepreneurs has helped create well over a trillion dollars in market value.

Bill Campbell played an instrumental role in the growth of several prominent companies, such as Google, Apple, and Intuit, fostering deep relationships with Silicon Valley visionaries, including Steve Jobs, Larry Page, and Eric Schmidt. In addition, this business genius mentored dozens of other important leaders on both coasts, from entrepreneurs to venture capitalists to educators to football players, leaving behind a legacy of growing companies, successful people, respect, friendship, and love after his death in 2016.

Leaders at Google for more than a decade, Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle experienced firsthand how the man fondly known as Coach Bill built trusting relationships, fostered personal growth — even in those at the pinnacle of their careers — inspired courage, and identified and resolved simmering tensions that inevitably arise in fast-moving environments. To honor their mentor and inspire and teach future generations, they have codified his wisdom in this essential guide.

Based on interviews with more than 80 people who knew and loved Bill Campbell, Trillion Dollar Coach explains the Coach’s principles and illustrates them with stories from the many great people and companies with which he worked. The result is a blueprint for forward-thinking business leaders and managers that will help them create higher performing and faster moving cultures, teams, and companies.

    The book was too short:). Didn’t want it to end. Overall an enjoyable read with a lot of leadership lessons
  • (4/5)
    Worth your time, but there are more concise BC resources available.
  • (5/5)
    A book about an amazing human being from whom there is so much to learn!
  • (4/5)
    Great principles to remember when working with tour team, stakeholders, and anyone really. A good balance of how to be a good coach and why being a bit more open and caring can go a long way in making connections and building trust.
  • (5/5)
    It's a very inspiring book. Although this guy has obviously lived an oxtraordinary life and it's hard to copy his behavior it's certainly a nice horizon to aim for
  • (5/5)
    Beautiful insights. Hell of a character. And easy to read.
  • (2/5)
    Interesting book but not much to it. It was great to know more about bill but that was all.
  • (5/5)
    This is probably the best managing/ coaching/ passing books I’ve ever read. I’m reading this Again on paperback with a highlighter!
  • (1/5)
    It doesn't seem realistic. "People now clap using the BCC - Bill Campbell Clap". Attributes to Bill almost all good that ever happened on the tech industry.
    If there was another chapter would be probably how Bill helped God develop the universe.
    This book is mostly about praises and has very little useful information.

    What a human being! Wow. Highly recommend. Well written and authentic.

    To be honest, I consider that this book is one of the best ones that I have ever read in my entire life.
  • (5/5)
    I feel like many people this book was too short but so good! Playing football for most my life this book did a great job of explaining how Bill utilized the concept of team building and showing compassion from football and applying that to the tech industry. Highly recommend reading this book!

  • (5/5)
    amazing material, completely stunning applicable to any organization and team
  • (5/5)
    This is one of the most boring books I have listened to but I am so glad I did not put it down. In fact, I could not do that because it contains life long exceptional experiences that if you think about it critically, are the foundations of business growth as we know it today in America. Bill will forever be remembered and has left a huge print on the sands of time.
  • (3/5)
    Not practical, basically praising for bill the entire book without really what he did
  • (5/5)
    Excellent book and great stories. It provides some great human aspects of some of the greatest tech CEOs and some amazing management lessons
  • (5/5)
    Great work, very impress, so much amazing content to absorbe and put into practice
  • (5/5)
    I had no idea who Bill Campbell was before reading this book. It's testament to the brilliance of this book that at the end of it, I thought to myself "wow, I wish I were Bill's friend. He sounds like an absolutely stellar, phenomenal human being."

    The book provides a good summary about what to consider as a leader and the value of having a coach. I recommend this book for new managers, it offers some perspective.

    This book is a trillion dollar let down - the book doesn't measure up to the man, the legend, the coach. I'd have loved to channel Bill Campbell's colorful language in this review, but out of respect to him and the author's pedigree and hard work, I refrain. There are some great anecdotes, examples, and situations in this book but the codification of the principles, if any, are really poor. I had very high expectations from this book and came away disappointed.
