Google CEO Eric Schmidt: Everybody needs a coach
In this interview with Fortune, Google CEO Eric Schmidt had this to say about coaching and everybody's need for a coach:
"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."
