Behave like a man if you want to succeed – All4Women Work and …

Photo ©: © Elnur – Fotolia.comIn her new book, Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg, the CEO of Facebook encourages women in the workplace to behave like men if they want to succeed…..While there are more women in leadership and management positions than ever before, the workplace remains a male-dominated terrain.

This is certainly true. In the South African context, we are still grappling with women inequity issues far greater than those faced in other similarly globally competitive countries.SA also has highest rape, domestic violence and women abuse statsMaroun comments, “Beyond salary gaps and lack of female representation in leadership in the private sector, we have some of the highest rape, domestic violence and women abuse statistics in the world.

All are initially hard for us to understand Continue reading

If I have to do a PowerPoint presentation, I will make sure that I prepare the slides and have a good understanding of the topic,” said Tio.The danger of not having information at one’s fingertips could trigger a panic attack during public speaking, he added.“Problems arise when you are suddenly at a loss for words in the middle of a speech.
