  4. 4. Be Real and Be Whole “Motivation comes from working on things we care about. But it also comes from working with people we care about. And in order to care about someone, you have to know them. You have to know what they love and hate, what they feel, not just what they think. If you want to win hearts and minds, you have to lead with your heart as well as your mind. I don't believe we have a professional self from Mondays through Fridays and a real self for the rest of the time. That kind of division probably never worked, but in today's world, with real and authentic voice, it makes even less sense.” “I've cried at work. I've told people I've cried at work. And it's been reported in the press that 'Sheryl Sandberg cried on Mark Zuckerberg's shoulder', which is not exactly what happened. I talk about my hopes and fears and ask people about theirs. I try to be myself - honest about my strengths and weaknesses - and I encourage others to do the same. It is all professional and it is all personal, all at the very same time.”
  5. 5. Lessons Learned  Be more open to taking career risks  Skip the people pleasing  Visualize your career as a jungle gym, not a ladder  Allow yourself to fantasize about your career  Start a Lean-In circle
