Sheryl Sandberg: “Bossy Girls” Get Ahead In Business
8:30 am, January 31st | by Amy Tennery
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg addressed an audience at Davos last week, where she noted the hurdles that women executives face — at WEF and everyday. She also argued that women in power need to get over being ‘likable’: “Little girls are called bossy. Anyone at Davos who as a girl was called bossy? If you got to Davos you were that. I was. Success and likeability are positively correlated for men and negatively correlated for women.”
Sandberg was quoted in a larger piece in Businessweek on the role of women at the World Economic Forum.
