Why CEOs Need Coaches - Eric Schmidt, former Google CEO

Eric Schmidt, former chairman of Google and Alphabet, discusses why he thinks the right coach can be a company’s most valuable asset.

“Every famous athlete, every famous performer has somebody who’s a coach.  Somebody who can watch what they’re doing and say, “Is that what you really meant? Did you really do that?”  They can give them perspective. The one thing people are never good at is seeing themselves as others see them.  A coach really, really helps”.
