Barrack Obama presented his new team, but forgot to adjust the podium
1st of December 2008 Hillary Clinton was nominated the new Secretary of State in Obama’s government launching in January 2009. Obama proudly presented his new team on a press conference.
However, Obama’s person in charge of practicalities must have forgotten the fact that women tend to be slightly shorter than men. While the male newcomers looked brilliant on the podium, the women appeared awkward.
The morale: You do not want someone provided lots of power and influence looking less bright than they are.
How does this apply to your organisation?
