Sheryl Sandberg, COO Facebook on why there are fewer women at the top

by Kasia Gospos on November 19, 2012

In this video, Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer at Facebook and a mother of two children, shares her views on why there fewer female leaders and how we women, can change this.

The good news is that we have the power to revolutionise this.It’s all about the attitude and how we think about ourselves. The thing that shocked me when I first joined the beauty industry was that there were hardly any women in CEO positions.

Sheryl Sandberg’s speech is something I will be referring to many times as it reminds me of something we all know and have heard before or at least suspected, but subconsciously too often act differently. This message has to be heard repeatedly until it becomes part of our behaviors and attitudes.

Yes, I am guilty too of thinking thoughts that are self-sabotaging. I often think what I have done is not good enough, it could have been done better. I don’t deserve all the credit, I am not yet ready to ask for the promotion or I should work harder. Are you guilty of this negative self talk too? If you have 15 minutes, watch this video and let me know if you agree with Sheryl Sandberg.

Leave your thoughts below on Sheryl Sandberg’s speech.
