“Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked onÂ Fortuneâ€™s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one ofÂ Timeâ€™s 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which became a phenomenon and has been viewed more than two million times, encouraged women to â€œsit at the table,â€ seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.
InÂ Lean In,Â Sandberg digs deeper into these issues, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias surrounding the lives and choices of working women. She recounts her own decisions, mistakes, and daily struggles to make the right choices for herself, her career, and her family. She provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career, urging women to set boundaries and to abandon the myth of â€œhaving it all.â€Â She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women in the workplace and at home.”
