You’ve heard the phrase ‘nice girls don’t get the corner office’ and from what we pick from Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead, it seems to be true.

Boss babes as they are referred to are usually thought of to be aggressive, inconsiderate and selfish among other traits that are highly associated with men. On your way to the top, Sandberg advises that you might have to share some of your niceness and adopt these characteristics to truly thrive.

She shares more insights in her book on how women can truly get themselves in the door and also enjoy some work-life balance. We spent time with Sandberg and did a full review of her book for you on our YAZA Africa LinkedIn page.

If you are interested in getting into the C-suite, this is a must-read.
