Ambitious Women: Why Don't We Like Them?

Debora Spar, President of Barnard College, has written a new book, Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection, that argues in every stage of life women are trying to reach impossible standards. Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, in her best selling book, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, shares the same viewpoint. One of the key issues both authors address is why ambitious women seem less likeable; femininity and ambition are not compatible. I think it is important to note both attended Harvard Business School where they both experienced the challenges women confront at work.
Spar offered some insights and guidelines:

  • Pick your battles wisely."I try to be easy to get along with. I am not aggressive or confrontational by nature."
  • When something is important, I'll fight for it and I'll fight hard, but I don't do it often.
  • If you are going to fight, then do your homework. If you're going to make a point, know every bit of data, every statistic, have your arguments formulated.

Sandberg talks about "seek and speak your truth" and the importance of having a "seat at the table."

Two must reads for women today.
