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

Amazon.com Rating:

Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women's voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women's progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential.

Sandberg digs deeper into the issues facing women leaders, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias surrounding the lives and choices of working women. She provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career, urging women to set boundaries and to abandon the myth of "having it all." Written with both humor and wisdom, Sandberg's book is an inspiring call to action and a blueprint for individual growth. Lean In is destined to change the conversation from what women can't do to what they can.

Description

Amazon.com Review

"Anyone who's watched Sheryl Sandberg's popular TED Talk, 'Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders,' is familiar with — and possibly haunted by — the idea of 'having it all.' 'Perhaps the greatest trap ever set for women was the coining of this phrase,' writes Sandberg in Lean In, which expands on her talk's big idea: that increasing the number of women at the top of their fields will benefit everyone. Sandberg... asks men to be real partners, sharing in the family work that typically leads to a woman's decision to stay home; she asks women who expect to start a family soon not to check out of work mentally....Lean In is likely to spur the conversations that must happen for institutional changes to take place at work." — Alexandra Foster
