Sometimes it’s harder for female CEOs to rebound from mistakes than it is for men.

Between 2003 and 2013, 38% of female chief executives were forced out of their companies, versus 27% of male CEOs.

And of 93 male CEOs who resigned under pressure, five returned later as CEOs of a public company, while no women did.

Former Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz once caught a lot of flak for her use of profanity—which is something that male CEOs often take as a point of pride. Bartz’s advice to women in the executive suite is to know that you will be held to a higher standard.
