Lean IN: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead


Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they'd feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in. The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour - of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the "Fortune" 500 CEOs are women. In "Lean In", Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO and one of "Fortune" magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business - looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale. She draws on her own experiences working in some of the world's most successful businesses, as well as academic research, to find practical answers to the problems facing women in the workplace. Learning to 'lean in' is about tackling the anxieties and preconceptions that stop women reaching the top - taking a place at the table, and making yourself a part of the debate. Hide synopsis

I recommend this book for all women that strive to be excellent! I've never felt so empowered and normal! This book has changed me as a professional, wife and mother. I am so grateful to Sheryl for being so honest and sharing her stories. I laughed, I cried, I learned and I have been encouraged to not be afraid! I will read this book more than once for sure.

Sandberg's writing is smooth and accessible. She begins with a question: What would you do if you were not afraid? Interspersing personal stories and reflections with those of others as well as studies on women in the workplace, she presents a rather bleak assessment of women leadership in the business world. She proceeds to give reasons and directions for women to pursue leadership positions. Her positive, forward-looking and practical steps can be tweaked to apply to any professional position. A great read!
