Lean In – Chapter 6 by Sheryl Sandberg

Consumed => “Lean In – Chapter 6 (Seek and Speak The Truth)” by Sheryl Sandberg.

=> Key takeaway #1 (page 84)…

“Requesting advice can also help build relationships. At Facebook I knew that the most important determinant of my success would be my relationship with Mark. When I joined, I asked Mark for a commitment that he would give me feedback every week so that anything that bothered him would be aired and discusses quickly. Mark not only said yes but immediately added that he wanted it to be reciprocal. For the first few years we stuck to this routine and voiced concerns big and small every Friday afternoon. As the years went by, sharing honest reactions became part of our ongoing relationship. Now we do so in real time rather than waiting for the end of the week. I wouldn’t suggest that all relationships need this much feedback—there is such a thing as asking for too much—but for us, it has been critically important.”

=> Key takeaway #2 (page 88)…

“Sharing emotions builds deeper relationships. Motivation comes from working on things we care about. It also comes from working with people we care about. To really care about others, we have to understand them—what they like and dislike, what they feel as well as think. Emotion drives both men and women and influences every decision we make. Recognize the role emotions play and being willing to discuss them makes us better manages, partners and peers.”
