While women have made significant strides in education, having long accounted for about half of all college graduates in the country, they are still largely underrepresented in business and government leadership roles.
In her recently published book, “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead,” Sheryl Sandberg explains why female leadership has not progressed and expands on solutions to help women better assert themselves and reach their goals.
Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook, blends personal anecdotes with insightful data and research to discuss the realities working women face in balancing their happiness with the needs of their families and demands of their professions. Throughout her book, she walks readers through specific negotiation techniques, mentorship tips, strategies to set boundaries and approaches to developing a fulfilling career. All funnel from one central question: How are we going to take down the barriers, both internal and external, that prevent more women from getting to the top?
“Lean In” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $13.72.
