“Trillion Dollar Coach – The Leadership Playbook of Silicon Valley’s Bill Campbell” by Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle
This book is an ode to Bill Campbell and the legacy that he left to so many Silicon Valley leaders. It is written like a playbook (appropriate given Bill Campbell’s college football background) and the authors attempt to codify Campbell’s leadership and coaching practices. I didn’t find the book super practical, but I did find the stories inspiring. I loved that Campbell seems to have left the legacy of human connection, trust and love as important business values. These aren’t values that I would think to associate with Silicon Valley so if that was his gift, then I am a fan.
I think that this is a great read for people who get inspiration from people’s personal stories. Bill Campbell had an impressive career and he was a great leadership role model.
