"I consider myself a high performer"
"The work I do makes a difference in people's lives"
According to a survey I conducted last week (of more than 5,000 leaders) only 22% of people say they’re very satisfied with their current position. The other 78% are divided between advancing a little or advancing far beyond their current position.
For years, men and women have been setting goals the same way. And the failure rates for both have been staggering (for example, the overwhelming majority of New Year’s Resolutions get abandoned within 90 days).
It’s not a question of equality between men and women(our goals can be the same), but rather differences in how we approach and carry out our goals.
