Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chavez and Facebook Chief Operating Officer and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg are speaking out about ways of supporting leadership potential in girls, including banning the word "bossy," to help send the right message to young girls about leadership. "My parents elected me president of the family when I was 4," Rice said. "I would call meetings where we'd decide things like what color to paint the living room. As I got older, I realized that what my parents were doing was sending messages about leadership potential."
