A straightforward and candid explanation of why people need coaches from Google CEO, Eric Schmidt.
I particularly enjoy how he elucidates on the power of having the extra set of eyes with which to examine your life. Such an added perspective not only adds a fresh take on your actions and motivations, I believe it also serves to remind us that we are social creatures. The decisions we make impact more than just us, and regularly checking in with someone else to discuss your behaviours can shed light on how the choices you make affect a larger audience than just you. In my opinion, this is one of the most profound benefits of coaching.
