You might have heard about the new book by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, titled, Lean In.
Whenever women encourage each other to step up their game I am on board. And we can support each other to do that.Yes, the cultures of companies need to change – to support equality for both genders. But we all need to take a look at our past conditioning and become aware of the erroneous messages that may be there that we’ve bought into. Once we do, we can take on new beliefs about ourselves that enable us to speak up on important issues and change the conversation when necessary.
Chapter titles from the book include “Success and Likeability,” “Make Your Partner A Real Partner,” “The Myth of Doing It All,” and “Working Together Toward Equality.”
