However, as time went by, it became clear to me that the term ‘aggressive’ has a negative connotation, especially in the U.S.. When I interviewed women for “Nevertheless She Persisted,” it was both eye-opening and a relief to hear them share their experiences of being dogged by this same descriptor. Pam Kostka, a serial entrepreneur who is now CEO of a stealth-mode mobile startup, was given the title “dragon lady,” but she did not change her management approach.
