Calling women to leadership – Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Facebook, gave a TED Talk about why are so few women in leadership roles. Her book, Lean In started from that 15 minute talk.

Sandberg’s point is that excuses and justifications will not get women anywhere. In her book she provides practical advice to urge women to take their place in the working world while taking ownership of a leadership concept. Women have to take a seat at the table, even if they feel uncomfortable at first, says Sandberg.

They have to lean in and have the will to lead. She says women have to break with internalised attitudes that hold them back. Throughout the book, Sandberg carefully weighs the double binds, internal and external, that keep women from reaching their goals, their potential at the workplace.

Sandberg’s book is a combination of hard data, academic research, her own stories, observations and life lessons with a hint of humour. Lean In is more than a book, it’s a sort of feminist manifesto as she calls it; part of a movement to build a more equal world.

The book is available at amazon.co.uk and amazon.com.
