A MUST READ – High-performing women pay a steep price for success

The Tallest Poppy: High-performing women pay a steep price for success

A MUST read for everyone. The results are unfortunate and don’t even capture the full magnitude of the impact of work on women who are trying to be their best selves. Add a 50% divorce rate, single parenthood, being advised to lean in, health challenges,…I think we all get the point. The #MeToomovement started in response to gender discrimination but what’s worse is that we are sometimes doing this to ourselves – women do not always support and back women – why? Challenging times for us. I will admit I find it frustrating. Imagine if we were all kind and inspired each other. You know that feeling when someone says “you look nice”, “great job”, … perhaps if we gave that to each other regularly imagine how much happier, more buoyant, productive and inspired we would all be. The possibilities are endless. Think about it as you head into your day.
