Male Success Norms Bad for Men Too

There's been a lot of talk about the importance of "executive presence" recently and a fair amount of criticism about the prominence it's been given in leadership circles. The fact that 96 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are male, and only 4.4 percent are people of color, are two more data points that support what we already know intuitively as well as what we heard: 'senior leadership is white, male, "Anadrol 50" and preferably tall' and the C suite is 'definitely more comfortable with sameness.' Thus, it is assumed (and not just by white men) that future leaders must look, act, and come across like this white male model."

For those of us in particularly "macho" cultures Wall Street, high stakes corporate litigation and tech startups the qualities associated with success are not simply "male" but dangerously skewed to those supposed male leadership markers that are harmful to the leaders' and their followers' mental health.

Over at TechCrunch, Alexia Tsotsis recently wrote a heart breaking article on the suicide of an e commerce CEO Jody Sherman of Ecomom, who once publicly aspired to be "as big as Zappos."

Like many others, Tsotsis took the occasion of Sherman's death to explore the "cult of startup excess, exacerbated by the spin" of tech journals like her own.

"As popular culture continues to glamorize startups," she wrote, "the harsh reality that 90 percent of them fail is consistently ignored."

An Ecomom investor candidly told Tsotsis that Turinabol Ciccone he and his peers "write off the losers quickly and amp the winners [so] we share a lot of the blame for creating the fiction around startups." His description of the way investors and founders relate was sharply reminiscent of the culture of trial lawyers as it existed when we women first entered their domain back in the mid 70s.

"I never asked [Econmom founder] Jody for an honest answer, not really we did the startup lineup and we all knew what pattern to run. I'd ask 'How's it going dick bag?' and he'd say 'Killing it.' We'd rush straight in with some talk about good things, jink with a little not so great stuff and circle back to the center with 'It's all good!' And then 'Awesome man, lets get more drinks.' Of course we'd get a little deeper than that, but truthfully we'd never get to the painfully 'truthful' part. When you're not a board member, you don't want to hurt founders and dig too hard and they don't want to bare their vulnerabilities."

If you've worked on Wall Street, in the AmLaw200 or Silicon Valley, talk like this is so common that you become pretty emotionally "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" detached from it. Unfortunately, you also become pretty detached Testoviron 250 O Sustanon 250 from your own inner spiritual and emotional resources as well as from the resources of a supportive community of colleagues.

Being Friendster, Not Facebook

When another high "4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone Ireland" flying Testosterone Enanthate Jaki Silicon Valley denizen, Aaron Swartz, committed suicide, psychoanalyst John Grohol, took a closer look at a startup culture that is a "high pressure work environment, where a small group of people (usually young, white males) work 18 or 20 hour days to produce a product or service they believe will be The Next Big Thing."

While that might be all well and good for a fast paced movie version of Mark Zuckerberg's life, it's not so great when your tech baby is Friendster, not Facebook.
