You’ve heard of Leaning In but how about Leaning Back? Over the past few years, a lot of women have undertaken Sheryl Sandberg’s advice to assert themselves more, to speak louder and to sit at the table. But some women are questioning this and are thinking about the bigger picture of what success means to them and how exactly they want to go about it. Enter: Leaning Back!
Leaning Back is about looking at the bigger picture. It’s about listening to yourself and doing what’s right for you. We discuss the pros and cons of Leaning In, what’s worked and what’s hindered us, and we explore the cultural and gender dimensions of success and the workplace.
