I recently watched an interesting speech that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg delivered for TED Talks. Sandberg provides the following advice for those women who are interested in having children and staying in the workforce: (1) sit at the table; (2) make your partner a real partner; and (3) don’t leave before you leave.
This would be a great speech to watch with your team, take notes, and then discuss.
You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
He who knows not and knows not that he knows not, but thinks that he knows, is a fool – leave him alone. He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child – teach him. He who knows, but knows not he knows, is asleep – wake him. He who knows, and knows that he knows, and uses what he knows, is a leader – follow him. — Willie Jolley (paraphrasing a German proverb)
