I’ll admit… I am often late to crazes. It’s not that I don’t notice that something is taking off—be it Fitbits, smartphones or social media—it’s just that I suppose I like to come around to an idea on my own time, and not just because someone tells me I should be tapping into the latest fad.
I remember when I first heard of Sheryl Sandberg’s book “Lean In” two years ago. It sounded like something I would love. After all, as a woman in management, I understood that Sheryl was addressing managers like me and encouraging me to use my leadership position to help other women achieve their own ambitions. But again, I am slow to crazes.
