From the HuffPo: Sheryl Sandberg’s New Metaphor for Careers

Normally, I would not include a business-oriented post in an education blog, but there are some interesting implications in this article. Sheryl Sandberg changes the career metaphor from a ladder to a jungle gym. Perhaps its time to find similar metaphors for education, society, and life in general as well. The levels of complexity and interconnectedness can be likened to increasingly more involved and layered jungle gyms, of which the corporate career is but one.

Whether to Harvard Business School MBAs or any gathering to celebrate success, Sandberg’s speech offers encouragement and promises of adventure to all. Read on. I found the speech very enjoyable.
