It would change the world in a positive way if all men and all women began to practice some of the ideas that are shared by Sheryl Sandberg.
So many great tips that I would definitely listen again - with a notebook this time - so I could jot all of the tips down!
Obviously my favorite character was Sheryl Sandberg as this book was choc full of anecdotes from her professional career.
I wouldn't listen to this in one sitting just because there are SO MANY great tips to try and absorb.
Entering my 8th year of my career, I was feeling apathetic toward my job. This book invigorated me and recharged my confidence levels. I put her advice into practice immediately and have been LEANING IN!
I have three daughters therefore I thought this book would be helpful in guiding their futures it is not just for women. Her words on marriage and how much personal relationships being in the business world are invaluable.
Felt like she could've said the same thing in half the time.
I'm a mom of 2 and work full time. I struggle with guilt every day bc I would rather be with my kids and work part time. I don't agree with the lean in idea for women to "be more equal to men"... I think that we shouldn't try to be equal, we should just work to be our best. Stop comparing us to men. Sorry you had those experiences, but not everyone does... Maybe it's just what you drew into your life.
Also didn't like the narrators voice. She sounded too young for me. Was looking for a more mature voice.
Say something about yourself!
This is an excellent listen for not only female professionals but any leader in corporate America. I felt like Sandberg was speaking directly to me! Very motivating and well-researched. Elisa Donovan is a good choice for narrator.
