Were You Once a Bossy Little Girl? Quote of the Week From Sheryl Sandburg

I still haven't made it through (ahem, started!) Sandberg's book, Lean In, but it's already inspiring me! As a former "bossy" little girl, this quote resonates deeply. Please spread the message!


Were YOU a bossy little girl? 
What messages were you given from the grown-ups in your life?

  1. well I think it's not the same.. believe me, I've known bossy girls who were just that.. bossy.. and mean.. I've suffered them quite a lot!

    obviously (and thankfully) not all girls are like that,.. some of them can be "bossy" in a helpful way and I think that's more of a leadership skill. and they know it and they don't need to be mean to feel strong. :)

    1. That makes perfect sense! I think that if I had a young daughter I'd be careful to encourage the "leadership skills" but also describe bullying as something critically important...

  2. I would adapt the quote a bit to say leadership POTENTIAL instead of skills.

    1. I love that, and agree! Oh well, Sheryl Sandberg's direct quote is still pretty awesome!

  3. Saw her on 60 Minutes and then again on The Daily Show-really loved her message! Like most things, it may be easier said than done however the idea is great. Being a former "bossy" girl, I feel I've been trained to tame that side of me at times and definitely defer to others wants and needs in most situations. I wish had rather learned to focus my "bossiness" into leadership skills and become confident in my ideas. I have Lean In on my To Read list-thanks for sharing!

  4. Not only was I told I was bossy, I was told I talk too much and that my long hair used to get in other children's way. Seriously??

    I do agree with Pequenia though - some kids are just mean and bully others. There's a difference.

  5. I think bossy and unkind are two TOTALLY different things. One can be bossy and very kind at the same time. As the youngest of 4 older siblings I had to be bossy to be heard, but I was never mean or rude to anyone. Just assertive and blunt. It all ocmes downto tone.

    Thank you for this quote. And yes, my bossiness was seen as a "flaw" and I was taught to tame it as well. Now being 33 I'm told old perscribe to how society tells me I should behave. I am a wonderful leader because I learned to use my bossiness effectively.

  6. I wish there was more recognition on types and uses of assertiveness. I've known (and disliked) many overbearingly bossy people, but if they had listening skills they'd be much more effective leaders. I've shied away from being called bossy because it made me think I was like these people, even though I was not a bully. I wish my "bossy" streak had been better channeled into confidence and skill...and yes, Lean In is on my reading list.
