Facebook’s C.O.O. and former Google executive, Sheryl Sandberg recently released a book, ’Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead’, about women and the workplace. Sandberg discussed her own story and the book in an NPR interview with Diane Rehm.
Sandberg and Rehm joke about Sandberg as a bossy older sister, but also take the time to discuss the seriousness in calling women bossy.
Sandberg notes in the interview, “If we want women to lead, we have got to stop calling them bossy.”
The full discussion is available online.
But don’t just take Sandberg’s word for it, The Guardian asked other female professionals about their workplace experiences and what they think of Sandberg’s advice.
