Issue 163 - 03 | How Women Rise: Helping Women Change the Behaviors that Get in Their WayBy Sally Helgesen & Marshall Goldsmith
Published April 18, 2018 11:00 a.m.
Familiar habits and responses may feel intrinsic, like part of who you are. But they are not you; they are you on autopilot. Bringing them to conscious awareness is the first step on the path to effective behavioral change.
Why focus on behaviors instead on of the cultural and structural factors that hold women back? Isn’t that just a way of blaming women?
Not at all. We are acutely aware that cultural and structural restraints still keep many women stuck, despite decades of admittedly uneven progress. But our focus in this book is on what lies within women’s control, what women themselves can change.”
