This review is from: Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead (Hardcover)
Chief Operating Officer of Facebook and well-known as a powerful, influential business leader, Sheryl Sandberg delivers a remarkable presentation on women's progress in achieving leadership. 'Lean In' explains why women's voices are still not heard equally in today's world as the author offers solutions to achieve full potential in reaching goals, and gives reasons why women have not advanced in many careers. Sheryl Sandberg encourages women to voice their opinion, take challenges, and not be afraid to take risks as they reach for their goals. In addition, she offers advice and tips on how to combine professional achievement with personal satisfaction. As I read through the incredible pages that are filled with motivation, strength and determination, I realized that if I was ever able to choose my own mentor, it would indeed be Sheryl Sandberg. This compelling account of leadership roles and how to achieve greatness is supportive for both women, and men. The author helps us understand how to get the best out of people, why leadership is good for business and society, and how to meet our challenges. Sheryl not only guides us in how to open up some of life's difficult doors, but shows us how to use our talent once that golden key is in our hands. 'Lean In' shows us the right road to follow in leadership and success not only for today's world, but for generations to come. I was not only inspired, but impressed on the intriguing personal stories of her experience on life's lessons, and solutions to complicated issues. Most important, the author encourages women and men to define their goals not only for the workplace, but also the community, and in the home, Sheryl shows how much we can do if we let go of fear, and how far we can go to create a world of equality. In conclusion, true partnership, being supportive and compassionate, has a strong bearing on everything we do. Furthermore, 'Lean In' encourages women to dream big as Sheryl Sandberg shows you how to reach for the stars, with optimism and self-confidence. This unique guide on overcoming the challenges is informative, honest, witty, and refreshing. Highly recommended!
