A Masterclass in Leadership with Eric Schmidt

By on May 7, 2019

Google’s former CEO Eric Schmidt, VP Jonathan Rosenberg and Director of Executive Communications Alan Eagle present a blueprint for farsighted leadership.

The trio of Google senior leaders behind the new book Trillion Dollar Coach join the How to: Academy to present 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.

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. To honour their mentor and inspire and teach future generations, they have codified his wisdom in this essential guide.

This talk will explain the Coach’s principles and illustrate them with stories from the many great people and companies with which he worked. You’ll walk away with a blueprint for forward-thinking business leaders and managers that will help them create higher performing and faster moving cultures, teams, and companies.


Bill’s passion for innovation and teamwork was a gift to Apple and the world. Trillion Dollar Coach has captured his tireless spirit so future generations can learn from one of our industry’s greatest leaders.
— TIM COOK, CEO, Apple

Bill shared his wisdom generously, expecting nothing back but the joy he got from teaching others. I was privileged to have him as my coach for several years. Many times since then, when asked for advice by others, I think of Bill and try to live up to the example he set.

Whenever I have a tough decision to make, I think about Bill Campbell. What would Bill do? I owe him so much. He had a gift for helping people to realize their full potential and getting organizations to work well together. Trillion Dollar Coach does a great job of capturing what made Bill special to me and many others.

Whenever I saw Bill, he gave me great perspective about what really matters. At the end of the day, it’s the people in your life. Bill had such strong principles around community and how to bring people together. We used those principles—detailed in Trillion Dollar Coach—to form the foundation of Google’s leadership training, so all of our leaders can continue to learn from Bill.
