Something happened to Sheryl Sandberg that she says impacted her life.
She was called a "bossy girl," and she's now on a rampage, a bossy one at that, to eradicate the world of the word bossy.
But I think Sandberg may be missing one tiny thing. Being called bossy did indeed impact her life but I suspect it was for the better, not worse.
She became a bossy and successful woman. And you know what, I'm bossy too.
So what? I'd be proud if all young girls, including my daughter, would scream from the hilltops: "I'm bossy"
Here's the definition of bossy:
bossy 1 |ˈbôsē, ˈbäs-|
adjective ( bossier , bossiest ) informal
fond of giving people orders; domineering: she was headlong, bossy, scared of nobody, and full of vinegar.
We need a campaign full of vinegar that actually makes a difference. And we need to be scared of nobody and domineering to get stuff done.
So let's start a bossy campaign to get higher wages for women; to get women into the nation's corner offices and political offices; to get paid family and sick leave; and to change the 1950s work model that just doesn't work for women or men today.
Forget Lean In circles. Bossy circles will change the world!
