I find the personal stories relatable and humorous at times. It does make me become more aware of the things I am doing right and wrong at work and career development. This journey felt as if she is personally mentoring me. :)
It is really related to individual who living and working in Silicon Valley. It is daily life that you don't even think about. It's inspiring and women will move up in the jungle gym with gusto eventually !
As a man, I found this book to be very insightful. I would highly recommend this book to any of my mail colleagues seeking to learn more about the difficulties women have to encounter in the workplace.
As a woman raised in a family with parents who were equal partners (mom and dad executives in their careers and equal caregivers at home), and having a marriage of equal partnership myself, this book brought awareness of how many others haven't been fortunate enough to have had this experience and therefore have the challenge of overcoming their own beliefs as to how life and success can be.
I recommend this book to those of us who were privileged to have an equal partnership example for awareness, and to those who didn't for inspiration.
this helped me open my eyes and acknowledge how many opportunities I turned away with the fear of not being liked by others, because women should not be mean or in charge. It seemed that others(usually men) had more faith in me than I.
I learned to lead while I in the Canadian Military. Since leaving the military I have only come across a few books for the leader really trying to have an impact. Lean In is one of them. A real "tell it like it is" book.
An awesome read.
The format of this book is perfect. It offers not only personal stories of motherhood and working moms, but statistical data to support claims.
This book is powerful! in the course of one week, it broadened my horizons and increased my belief do greatly, that I am making major change in my life. it gave me permission to be strong.
