Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg on creating more 'Women Leaders'


Wow!! This has to be one of the best talks I've ever seen about why there are so few women leaders . Sanberg touched on some powerful points. Though split in three parts, together is packs quite a punch. She talks about the positive correlation between "likeability and success", and drives it home with a great study about the intersection of gender and business.

Also, she gives an eye-opening account of an exchange she had with a young woman, which reveals something that society is consistently overlooking. Though she considered it to be embarrassing, I thought it was very courageous for her to admit. Trust me, this is one of the best 14 minutes you'll spend watching a video.

Fantastic speech on a necessary topic.

  1. POWERFUL. What an amazing topic to share on your blog. Sandberg's talk was inspiring and was by far one of the best talks I have watched in quite a while. It's amazing how often these topics go untouched and it is so fantastic as 2011 approaches to bring these important issues to surface!
