Sheryl Sandberg, Give 'Lean In' a Rest

Sheryl Sandberg, Give 'Lean In' a Rest | Successful women | Scoop.it
As long as women are the ones having the babies and are more likely to be the ones managing the household as well, they will be the ones dealing with the balancing act between career ambitions and family needs/obligations....
AnYes van Rhijn's insight:

A lot of interesting things said. I personally am not that bitter and do not agree however with the bottom line. It is up to us to be clear about the meaning of the words success and fulfillment. With the right level of awareness we can raise our level of consciousness and therefore make the right choices for us. We won't change a system over night but as long as our mindset is the right one and we do ourselves what we preach to others, we are heading in the right directions.

malek's curator insight, October 3, 8:53 AM

A major fuction  women can do better is fostering leadership in others. This will unleash the “renegade” in women because by fostering the leadership in others around them and delegating more, their time is freed up to think more strategically, to plan the vision, to communicate the vision and be a team leader. A lot of women, because they are good at what they do, keep responsibility tight in their claw.
