Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
In 2010, Facebook CEO, Sheryl Sandberg, ranked on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, delivered a trail-blazing TEDTalk in which she encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and actively pursue their career goals.
In Lean In she expands on this talk and explores the lives and choices of working women. She recounts her own struggles to make the right choices for herself, her career, and her family and provides practical advice on how women can build a satisfying career, describing specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment.
