520 |a Is it possible to run a multibillion-dollar corporation on the power of trust? Must you set aside your authentic self as you climb the corporate ladder? Is there another role for technology beyond saving costs and creating efficiencies? Here, Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay, speaks to these questions and more, identifying ten core values that steered her--and can steer any leader--to success without ethical compromise. Values such as trust, authenticity, courage, and validation are not naive, Meg shows us, and they are definitely not a luxury. Rather, they are essential tools for success that go hand in hand with traditional business practices--like holding oneself accountable or growing a company efficiently. She believes they are the foundation of strong management in the twenty-first century.--From publisher description.
