Quote

 

"In business, being liked can be just as critical to success as being respected. 'Difficult' people are unlikely to be invited to join projects, teams or boards. So, for women leaders, being disliked for being assertive can carry real career costs, not just social ones."
Melissa J. Williams, Wall Street Journal, May 30, 2016
