From the Atlantic: Why Women Shouldn't Have to Act Like Dudes at Work. An interview with brilliant Barbara Annis, an expert in gender intelligence. Her view --- which I endorse -- is that men are women are not the same, but have equally valuable, although different, contributions to make at work.

Here's a piece by Sheryl Sandberg and Professor Adam Grant on professional women doing 'Office Housework" and how it can hurt their careers. Management's response to male "helpers" is much more positive:

"For staying late and helping, a man was rated 14 percent more favorably than a woman. When both declined, a woman was rated 12 percent lower than a man."

Have you made your New Year's resolutions or do you avoid this annual opportunity for a fresh start because you've failed to keep them in the past? Setting goals for the new year helps focus our attention on what's important to us. The key to meeting your goals is how you formulate them. Here's my explanation of SMART goal setting.

Women #lawyers can't seem to get a break. Major, Lindsay & Africa's 2014 partner compensation report shows women's rainmaking successes have slumped. Worse, even when women bring in business they are paid less than comparable male colleagues.

Feel like I've hit the big time! Both the Girl's Guide to Law School and Above the Law carried an essay I wrote about changing careers. Each of us has many different selves inside and the career we choose out of college may not fit as different aspects of our personality come forward. What a hoot to see my piece on the front page of Above the Law.

Great piece the Harvard Business Review on the fate of women attorneys in Big Law.

"No area of the business world is more illogically gender imbalanced than law firms."

Training in Gender Intelligence would go a long way in correcting this.

Female lawyers have too long been treated as second class citizens in many large law firms. It's wrong - legally, morally and ethically. If these imperatives weren't enough, firms should be motivated to change for financial reasons. They invest in training new lawyers and lose when female lawyers leave because of mistreatment, taking that training to a more friendly environment. Firm management itself needs training, and the topic is gender intelligence.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second-best time is now. What do you want your life to be like in 20 years? No matter our age, we can - and should - plan for our future.

To paraphrase Mary Oliver, "What do you want to do with this precious life?"
