Sheryl Sandberg on Life After Leaning In

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg first stepped onto the TED Talks stage in 2010 to deliver a speech about how self-limiting beliefs have led to a lack of women leaders in the corporate world. That talk inspired Sandberg to author a book titled Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

Sandberg, who was a runner-up for the 2013 SUCCESS Achiever of the Year, revisits the discussion of gender equality in the workplace and looks at the global reaction to her bestseller.

“These messages of equality, of how women are told they can’t have what men can have, how we assume that leadership is for men, how we assume that voice is for men, these affect all of us and I think they are very universal,” she says.

Learn how your own self-limiting beliefs can hamper your success.

Slow and Steady—and Generous—Wins the Race

 
In his talk with Darren Hardy, marketing expert Seth Godin offers these words of wisdom for finding success in today’s marketplace: Be generous and grow slowly.
 
Generosity encourages trust in a business, “and if you figure out how to be trusted by a group of people, then you have done something really difficult,” Godin says.
