Sooner or later, every individual or organization gets stuck. It`s just part of the human condition.

With the controversies sparked by Sheryl Sandberg`s "Lean In" and Marissa Mayer of Yahoo`s back-to-the-office mandate; as well as new data quantifying the financial significance of having more women in the C-suite and on corporate boards, the time has come for women to step into their power.
