Always Do Your Best

Meg Whitman, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
In conversation with: Tina Seelig, Stanford University

Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Meg Whitman explains how having some humility at her first job after earning an MBA from Harvard Business School helped her shine in front of supervisors. She recalls being given an assignment that, initially, she felt was beneath her and should’ve gone to someone else. But by committing to do the best job possible, Whitman says she came to understand a timeless lesson about business.
