Sheryl Sandberg on Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders

On International Women’s Day I wanted to share this insightful TED Talk by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg (one of the West Coast’s most prominent Obama supporters). Here she describes the challenges of being a female executive and what women can do to rise to the top without being neither feared or intimidated. Key points:

  • Men attribute their success to themselves (“I’m awesome!”) while women attribute it to external factors (luck, hard work, got help from peers, etc).
  • Success and likeability are positively correlated for men and negatively correlated for women.
  • We have to make it as important a job for both genders to work in the home and raise children. Truly egalitarian couples have more sex and half the divorce rate.

Garry Marshall’s Holiday Season-Bait, New Year’s Eve, Drops the Ball

It’s this thing called ‘chemistry.’

The Hollywood bastardization of Love, Actually continues in this charmless flick. Serendipity has not seemed this forced, human connection not this fabricated - like in a room full of press agents pushing for an extra fifteen seconds of that featured cameo — since the Valentine’s Day massacre of 2010.

Even though Ashton Kutcher played the unlovable slacker, Katherine Heigl was the self-righteous ball-buster, Sarah Jessica Parker the frantic fashionista, Josh Duhamel the playboy with a heart of gold, Sofia Vergara the sexed-up señorita, Zac Efron the cheeky stud, Lea Michele the overeager chanteuse, and Bon Jovi the pathetic lite-rock singer, the only person who was actually supposed to play themselves in New Year’s Eve was Ryan Seacrest.

Someone should tell Garry Marshall that just because he can get three Oscar winners (Halle Berry, Hilary Swank, Robert DeNiro) in a hospital room scene does not mean he’s making a semi-decent film. And the only thing worse than having to watch Lea Michele and Bon Jovi sing on film is having to watch them sing twice.
