What Women (and Men) Can Learn From Hillary

We can learn a lot by watching politicians stumble (to wit, Eliot Spitzer.) But we can also learn positive lessons for our own careers from public figures. Hillary Clinton is a politician who offers us both (i.e. guidance on how women in particular can advance and examples of how men and women can damage their careers.) A female partner at Andrews Kurth in Dallas weighs in.

Personally, I admire Hillary’s tenacity, her debating skills and her focus on issues that matter a lot to me. But I squirm when I see her trying to embellish her resume with factually inaccurate material (e.g. the latest controversy over her trip to Bosnia.) She has plenty to be proud of in her career. I’m not sure why she feels the need to go beyond the facts.
