Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they'd feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in.

The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour – of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women.

In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg – Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business – looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale. She draws on her own experiences working in some of the world's most successful businesses, as well as academic research, to find practical answers to the problems facing women in the workplace.

Learning to 'lean in' is about tackling the anxieties and preconceptions that stop women reaching the top – taking a place at the table, and making yourself a part of the debate.

Review:

"If you loved Sheryl Sandberg's incredible TEDTalk on why we have too few women leaders, or simply believe as I do that we need equality in the boardroom, then this book is for you. As Facebook's COO, Sheryl Sandberg has first-hand experience of why having more women in leadership roles is good for business as well as society. Lean In is essential reading for anyone interested in righting the injustice of this inequality" Sir Richard Branson, Chairman, the Virgin Group "Sheryl provides practical suggestions for managing and overcoming the challenges that arise on the "jungle gym" of career advancement. I nodded my head in agreement and laughed out loud as I read these pages. Lean In is a superb, witty, candid, and meaningful read for women (and men) of all generations" Condoleezza Rice, Former U.S. Secretary of State "Sheryl Sandberg brilliantly explains how she believes women must put themselves forward if the gender gap is ever to be closed - I agree, but I would add women should not only lean in, but also stand up and cheer." Martha Lane Fox "Eleanor Roosevelt once said, 'No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.' With stories from her own life and data carefully researched, Sheryl Sandberg reminds women that they have to believe in themselves and reach for opportunities. More women than men may need that advice, but I'd bet that both genders would profit from this very well-done book" Marjorie Scardino, Former CEO, Pearson PLC "For the past five years, I've sat at a desk next to Sheryl and I've learned something from her almost every day. She has a remarkable intelligence that can cut through complex processes and find solutions to the hardest problems. Lean In combines Sheryl's ability to synthesize information with her understanding of how to get the best out of people. The book is smart and honest and funny. Her words will help all readers-especially men-to become better and more effective leaders" Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO, Facebook

Book Description Ebury Publishing, 2013. Softcover. Condition: New. Lean In: Women, Work And The Will To Lead is a book that was written as a result of a TED conference in 2010, which revolved around the discussion that there are very few women in leadership positions. Even though it has been thirty years since women made up half the number of college graduates in the US, males still hold the majority of leadership positions. This translates that women arenâ t being heard in major decisions that affect the lives of individuals in these modern times. Sandberg tells women that they would never receive the same recognition as men, unless they are willing to make certain changes in order to prevent stagnation. She further throws light on the current state of women in the corporate arena of America, explaining that there are only 21 women CEOs in Fortune 500 companies in the US, and 22 out of 197 women hold the position of heads-of-state. Globally, women hold only 20 percent of parliamentary positions. She tells women to sit at the table, have faith in themselves, and shoot for the top. Sandberg also explains that the rate of divorce would decrease greatly if women pulled in half the household income. Apart from income, she also states that men and women should share equal responsibilities at household work. This book has almost 30 pages of footnotes as a result of Sandbergâ s proof for her claims. Sandberg also opens up to the readers by penning down her insecurities in college, and the time she cried in the presence of her boss. She also recounts the time when she had to negotiate her pay with Facebook. Lean In: Women, Work And The Will To Lead is a must-have for women who desire to overcome their pre-conceived ideas and anxieties to achieve the success they always wanted. Printed Pages: 256.
