  • May 2 2012: Not a popular nor a politically correct one: If you are a woman, you will have a far better time accomplishing things that require absolutely no delegation or teamwork, especially in very male-heavy environments. Most such disciplines have an on-ramp in the early 20s, and males in that age bracket will ABSOLUTELY NEVER accept leadership from a female in the same age bracket. If you are an ambitiousd woman and have multiple arenas where you can achieve things, aim yourself for the one that requires as little teamwork as possible. Sorry, but it's the truth.
    • May 12 2012: It really is true. I find it interesting that majority of people respond best to a woman. Siri, automated voicemails, all kinds of things that are female voices, because most people respond to that motherly connection. However when it comes to a male dominated field, a team, or collaboration of some kind, the female tends to see the most conflict, receive the least amount of respect, and has to work twice as hard to get half the output. When you add in an age conflict it becomes even more apparent. My mind goes back to how we evolved and what role that has played in our current society. I completely agree with you though. You either need a team that is already have well established and respects you, or no team at all.
