Leadership is Trust.

Nemacolin was recently honored to host a luncheon with the Greater Washington Board of Trade with guest speaker Meg Whitman. Meg proved that running a multi billion-dollar corporation is possible on the power of trust. She also found another role for technology beyond saving costs and creating efficiencies. Has your business done this?

We were fortunate to host Meg for a powerful lunch to begin her nationwide tour for her new book. In "The Power of Many," Meg who was the President and CEO of eBay, speaks to these two powerful attributes. She also identifies ten core values that steered her and can steer you to success without ethical compromise. During her decade at the helm of eBay, Meg transformed the tiny start-up into a nearly $8 billion global powerhouse. She revolutionized the way goods are bought and sold online.

The lunch was powerful and candid. She showed us that trust, authenticity and courage are not naive nor are they a luxury. They are essential tools we need in our business. Meg showed us that achievement can and should be teamed with optimism, trust and honesty. Her book offers the insights and motivation we need to propel ourselves to "the next level, or scale," as Meg said, "in business and in life." As I was driving home, I knew that we do a really good job at her key points, but where can we improve?

It made us delve closely into the trust our guests have when they visit Nemacolin. We have one opportunity to make their visit memorable. How can we engender more trust from our guests? It’s a question we will be working very hard to move to ‘the next scale’ on moving forward.

Meg Whitman was the CEO of eBay from 1998 to 2008, growing the company into an unparalleled engine of global e-commerce. Her thirty-year career includes helping many companies, including Stride Rite, Bain & Company, Procter & Gamble, Disney and Hasbro. In 2009, she announced her candidacy for Governor of California.
