Everyone is talking about Serena Williams at the US Open this past weekend. C-suite exec and business coach Cassandra Shepard has an interesting take as it relates to women in business.
After Serena Williams was penalized a game for arguing with the chair umpire, Serena stated that men have said far worse things than she did without being penalized a full game. People are wondering if Serena were a man standing on the court would there even be an issue? Is there a double standard in sports, business, and in everyday interactions regarding how men and women communicate during unpleasant confrontations?
