Is self-promotion a women's problem?

The avalanche of emails responding to my Shifting Careers column on self-promotion continues. When I wrote that column, I didn't think self-promotion was a women's issue and I know that many men -- and many folks who were just raised to think being humble is good manners -- also have a problem with it. But a lot of the experts and commentators believe that women have a harder time with it than men.

Lisa Cullen,'s workplace blogger (the unidentified friend who called me a "master of self-promotion"), blogged about my column. For her, it all came down to the estrogen factor. Read what she has to say here.
