    Leader One-on-Ones - Trillion Dollar Coach Series - Chapter 2 Part 3

    Today we continue our series on The Trillion Dollar Coach with Part 3 of Chapter 2 which is all about one-on-ones.
    Bill Campbell brought his own unique flair to coaching his team and rooted it in solid leadership foundations that we will discuss today.
    We discuss a few thoughts and ideas around how to improve your own 1:1 effectiveness which center mostly around consistency and preparation. No single one-on-one will be life-changing, but the frequency of these relationship investments will compound over time. You will also get a 10x return on the time you invest preparing for the one-on-one which will lead to faster growth of your team.

    Peer Relationships and The Trip Report - Trillion Dollar Coach Series - Chapter 2 Part 2

    Today we continue our series on the Trillion Dollar Coach by talking about one of our favorite relationship building tools, the Trip Report.
    The Trip Report is exactly what it sounds like. A brief, informal, overview of a recent vacation you took aimed at sharing with your colleagues to build trust and help them get to know you better. When you have a team that is willing to share Trip Reports, you can foster a higher degree of empathy and collaboration over time.
