3.16.13 … Do women derail their own careers? YES!

“They ‘lean back’ during meetings—sitting in the corner and not at the table. They question their capacity to lead more often than men do, and push less often for promotions or pay rises. Internal research by Hewlett-Packard found that women only apply for jobs for which they feel they are a 100% match; men do so even when they meet no more than 60% of the requirements,” we write in a review of “Lean In”, a new book by Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer. This is, she argues, how women derail their own careers. Do you agree?
