Wow, Paul, what a great and interesting article. I have been liking Merkel’s calm approach for years. You give some other great examples. I have to say, though, that our Dutch PM, a male, this time is actually shining. He is also calm, measured, follows the science, and when the measures were taken, he gave a long interview to what we call the Youth News, a dutch news programme for kids. Simple language, straight forward, acknowedging.
So, we have male examples of this type of leadership as well. And that’s important, I think. To not make this, again, about boys vs girls. But about us all. Anyway, I’m with you in following leaders that lead in a humane way.
