What’s this about a female advantage?

Have you heard of Sally Helgesen? Neither had I till recently.

Sally Helgesen is an author, speaker, and consultant in the business world. But more importantly, she is an interesting and intelligent badass. I decided to use her book, The Female Advantage as an inspirational starting point for a class project on leaders in our field of business.pexels-photo

However, I didn’t choose Ms. Helgesen right away. First, I had to do some research on her and learned that she is an intelligent woman on a mission to help women recognize and act on their greatest strengths. By following her mission, she becomes such an impact on those she touches. It must be a different feeling to be able to touch people in such a profound way.

Probably the key thing that drew me to Sally is how far reaching this said impact is. She has worked with various universities and associations around the world, even consulting with the UN on projects overseas. Just with this little information about her work, it just shows me how interesting she is and just what makes her a badass to me. Just this little bit of info has me on the edge of my seat, waiting to learn more about her. My first stop to look is in her book, where I’ll find out what it was like in her field before the internet.

I highly recommend everyone check Sally Helgesen out. You can find her on Twitter and on her blog. I’d love to hear what you think of her and her work.

 

Do you have any recommendations for other impactful people I should keep an eye on? Tell me down below.
