3 Tips for Career Success for Women
This talk from Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, made a big impression on me when my good friend, Wendy Smedley, shared it with me, because it addresses challenges women face in having career success that are as much internal beliefs as external realities. It’s about 15 minutes long, but I encourage you to give it a watch and see what resonates with you as a working woman, whether in the home or out.
The quote from Ms. Sandberg that struck me the most is, “I think a world that was run where half of our countries, and half of our companies were run by women would be a better world.” I agree, because what we as women bring to the workplace is amazing and should not be underestimated, even by ourselves. She says, “No one gets to the corner office by sitting on the side… And no one gets the promotion if they don’t think they deserve their success.” We need to believe in our talents and accomplishments to make them a reality.
What in Ms. Sandberg’s talk stuck out to you? What advice would you add to hers for women to have career success? I look forward to your tips.
