Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg is an interesting examination of the current workplace and woman’s role within it. A great read for any working woman or man to expand their understanding of the current working climate. Sandberg identifies a need for more woman to be in leadership roles and she explains the reasons that woman both hold themselves back and are held back. Sandberg draws upon examples from her own working life, specifically her time working with Mark Zuckerberg.
We’ll start the summary by discussing Sandberg’s thoughts on the difference in woman’s place in schooling and the workplace. Next, we’ll move on to discuss Sandberg’s stance on why women hold themselves back and the differences between success and likability. We’ll cover why Sandberg thinks that one’s career can no longer be referred to as ‘climbing the ladder’ and the role of mentors in the workplace. Finally, we’ll cover the subjects of motherhood in the workplace, supportive partners and the concept of ‘leaning in’.
