  1. 1. DALLAS   LEAN  IN   Leadership   July  25,  2013  
  2. 2. “We  cannot  all  succeed  when   half  of  us  are  held  back.”   Malala  Yousafzai  
  3. 3. Did  you  know?   36%  of  men     vs.     18%  of  women   Aspire  to  C-­‐Suite  posiGons   Based  on  study  of  more  than  4,000  employees  in  2012  McKinsey  study  (LeanIN  book).  
  4. 4.          Dirty  liHle  secret…   Why  are  we  uncomfortable?                                            Ambi&ous            Leader                                                  Expert   Visionary        Self-­‐confident   Willing  to  take  a  risk     Jobs  described  as  “powerful,  challenging,  and   involving  high  levels  of  responsibility”      
  5. 5. What’s  really  happening?   MEN   *  See  themselves  as  leaders  and  deserving   *  Assume  they  will  succeed  –  learn  on  the  go   *  Not  afraid  of  failure  or  not  knowing   *  Always  looking  for  the  next  posiGon   *  Accept  full  credit  for  job  well  done!   WOMEN   *  Constant  criGque  –  holding  for  perfecGon   *  Focus  on  current  posiGon   *  Afraid  of  failure  or  not  knowing     *  Generally  deflect  compliments,  praise   *  Push  credit  to  the  team  and  other  experts    
  6. 6. Imposter  Syndrome   =   phenomenon  of  capable  people   being  plagued  by  self-­‐doubt  
  7. 7. Imposter  Syndrome   “…vacillate  between  extreme  egomania,  and  a   complete  feeling  of:  “I’m  a  fraud!”    Tina  Fey   •  Fact:    Women  tend  to  experience  it  more   intensely  and  be  more  limited  by  it.   •  Root  cause:    Insecurity.   •  Originates  from:    We  consistently  underesGmate   ourselves.      
  8. 8. Imposter  Behavior  –  Do  you  have  it?   Performance  Assessment   •  Women  judge  their  own  performance  as  worse  that  it  is,  while   men  do  the  opposite.   •  If  the  evaluaGon  is  done  in  front  of  others  –  worse  sGll.   Success     •  Men  credit  their  success  to  their  own  innate  qualiGes  and  skills.   •  Women  aHribute  to  external  factors:    worked  really  hard,  got   lucky,  or  had  help  from  others.   Failure     •  Men  point  to  not  preparing  or  just  not  interested  in  the  subject.   •  Women  believe  it  is  inherent  lack  of  ability.    This  internalizaGon   breeds  insecurity  which  hurts  future  performance  –  long  term.

  11. 11.
