Throughout my professional life, women in the corporate world were not really helpful with each other and I became as aggressive as them when I started to climb the ladder of success. I even persuaded myself that I did not have time to cultivate relationships with junior women.
I was not aware of reproducing the "Queen Bee Syndrome", when women behave in ways more typical of men to display toughness and fit in.
