Inhaltsangabe

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.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

100% praise, no lessons

This book tries to be both a biography, and a eulogy, but unfortunately fails at both. The main problem with it is the amount of sugar-coating of Bill. "Everything he did was great", "he was always supportive", "he LOVED the people", etc. It's all "good" and "great", he never did anything wrong. We all know that no person is that simple. But I guess when you have half of silicon valley CEOs as friends you can rewrite the history!

The funny part is how phrases that "he LOVED the people and put them first" are backed up by stories like when a person who was important to the company and did a good job decided to quit and Bill goes "He betrayed us. F**k him." Yeah, talk about love for people. To me a lot of examples sounded like he cared for the company results, and was nice to people only as long as they played along.

Another funny example was when the author was highlighting Bill's commitment to "the team". So Bill was hobby-coaching a kids' team in his free time. And the commitment example is he was preparing plays the team should execute during board meetings in one of the companies. Seriously? And for the author it's a great thing, showing how he values the kids. And the company he's on the board of? I guess it's not important. And only in the previous chapter author was telling about Bill berating a player on his team for having "other commitments" and that "you have to be 100% focused on one thing"; right before saying Bill himself was doing random stuff in meetings. But no, he's a perfect man.

To be useful, the book needs to tell the truth. To draw lessons, you need to see both sides. Blindly praising Bill doesn't do anyone any good.

Unstructured anecdotes

Despite it's shortness I really struggled to finish this book. It seemed like a collection of rather unstructured opinions and anecdotes about the seemingly flawless Bill Campbell.
But... maybe I'm just disappointed, because I had high expectations in the authors or because I compare it to Ray Dalios Principles.

Solid Book

Not too many surprises. Solid insights (that are rather well known already). The story itself is not too interesting.

kind of a cool story

besides flthe fact that the hole book is split in sections and not named chapters it is again not that cool to handle...
from the insight it seems to be a quite interesting person with some decent approaches.
