Why do we get in our own way by playing the victim as we strive to succeed in business? Don’t we have enough to contend with as women business leaders? I do believe our struggles can be a bit overwhelming at times and that elusive life and work balance is hard to achieve but do we have to act like men to be effective? I was left wondering why we save our best behavior for our encounters with men and often crawl through or over other women. I guess I am enough of an idealist to hope that we can take the gifts that we have as women to collaborate to lift other women up.
