In this week’s episode, Google’s former CEO Eric Schmidt, VP Jonathan Rosenberg and Director of Executive Communications Alan Eagle present a blueprint for farsighted leadership.
They are among the most influential CEOs on the planet – icons of the digital age. But what else do Jeff Bezos, Sheryl Sandberg, Sundar Pichai, Marissa Meyer and Steve Jobs have in common?
They all learned to lead from the legendary coach and business executive, Bill Campbell. His mentoring of some of the most successful modern entrepreneurs has helped to create well over a trillion dollars in market value, and played an instrumental role in the growth of many of Silicon Valley’s most powerful companies.
Google’s senior leaders Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle experienced first-hand 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.
They joined Matthew Stadlen on the How To Academy Podcast to tell us more about Bill’s ideas and methods, and honour his legacy.
