It’s always good to know how to get ahead and that’s the topic of this week’s Wednesday wanna-read. My pick is Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg.
Sandberg, who is high up in Facebook, writes about how to be a woman in the workplace and continue to push for equality.
Being a woman in the workplace, I’ve felt some pushback from time to time. Not necessarily from those inside my office, but there are those outside who feel that I’m doing a job that is meant for a man. And hearing that, we tend to start to believe it on some subconscious level.
The thing about a glass ceiling is that it is clear, so you may not even realize it is there and keeping you boxed in. And that is what Sandberg is trying to get women to realize.
I’m excited to read this book and maybe get a few tips about how to better empower myself in the workplace. Granted, I don’t work in some huge corporate office, but I hope a few tips could be modified to be more appropriate for me.
