Bill Gates, TED Talks, April 2013

Everyone needs a coach. It doesn’t matter whether you are a basketball player, a tennis player, a gymnast, or a bridge player. We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.

Eric Schmidt, Fortune, 22 Dec 2009
The thing is I’ve received so many kinds of advice, I don’t know where to start. One that comes to mind is to have a coach. Our board member in 2002, John Door said: “You need a coach.”

He said, “No, no, no. You need a coach. Everybody needs a coach!”
Bill Campbell became my coach and has served very well. Every famous athlete. Every famous performer has somebody who has a coach. Somebody who can watch what they’re doing and say, “Is that what you really meant? Did you really do that?”
