The Glass Cliff

Our leadership coach Michelle Rupp sent us this one from the BBC:

“Rather than women leaders causing poor company performance, poor company performance may lead to the appointment of women to positions of leadership.”

According to the article, a big threat to women in leadership is the “glass cliff.” In other words, “being promoted into risky, difficult jobs where the chances of failure are higher.”
