Women's representation in leadership roles has been stalled at 15 percent in Fortune 500 companies for at least 15 years. It's a puzzling state of affairs, and potential explanations abound. Professor Robin Ely challenges three common beliefs.

We need to quit making excuses for the lack of representation of women in top positions.

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

"I will make dreams come true.

No, I cannot make you fly or find true love. But I can help with the goals that we set for ourselves every New Year's Day - that this is the year I will become fitter, feel more energized, and live a healthier life.

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a personal trainer is that moment when it clicks for a client. Whether it is the first time they run three miles without stopping or squat 95 pounds without breaking a sweat, there is a singular moment when it becomes apparent that all this hard work is paying off. That they are, without a doubt, heading on the right path. "I don't have the time," "I don't want to do this," "what's the point," turns into "what's next," "this feels great," and "I love it."

In this always-on, frantic culture we live in, there is not enough emphasis on taking better care of ourselves. We go straight from high-achievement to hypertension, obesity, and depression without ever stopping and thinking about why. We should be healthier, we need to be healthier, and with the right support, we will be healthier.

My own dream is that one day obesity levels in the world will finally start dropping. I cannot wait to help make this happen." —Xiao Wang (MBA 2014)

Each year we ask MBA students a question taken from the last lines of a poem by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Mary Oliver. Read more: http://hbs.me/23RBguC

Managers can be extraordinarily effective in managing even the most difficult innovations if they work to understand and harness the principles of disruptive innovation.

Superbowl 50 means business! HBS professors have been doing research on brain injuries, coaching, marketing, and leadership of the NFL. See the game day roundup: http://hbs.me/1Q3B0EX

Impostors are highly talented people who believe their success is a mistake—that they don't deserve the honors. But how do you find and hire them? The lastest from HBS Working Knowledge: http://hbs.me/1VZKn6K

Any time you're going to launch something, meaning a product launch, an initiative launch, a culture change launch, you want to be thinking very carefully about it. You want to be hearing the quiet voices. You want to be thinking about it from all angles. Leadership lessons learned from the space shuttle Columbia's final mission: http://hbs.me/1S3lM2F

There are a few problems with the hire-stars approach, however. First, there are only so many stars to go around since everyone is fighting over the same candidates. Second, even if you do manage to hire stars, their unique skill sets may not be easily portable.
