Women, Work and the Will to Lead – A Book You Must Read.

Sheryl Sandberg – Lean In – Women, Work and the Will to Lead

Book - Lean InSheryl Sandberg, COO of FaceBook, talks openly in her book ‘Lean In’ about the challenges women face in the workplace. The practical and obvious ones, such as combining a career with raising a family and finding the right mentors and sponsors; the internal obstacles, such as fear, self-doubt, lack of confidence and our internalising of negative messages; and other barriers that frequently exist, such as negative stereotyping and unconscious bias.

Sheryl provides excellent practical advice – sit at the table, make your partner a real partner, seek and speak your truth – combined with real life stories and good humour.

Lean In is an excellent read for women (and men) who want to progress in their careers.

The book originated from a TED Talk given by Sheryl in 2010 that started this conversation on how women can succeed in the workforce. Here’s the TED Talk:
