Margarita SlobodianSocial media, strategic planning, research market

Let's look at examples of true leadership in a crisis? Iceland, Taiwan, Germany, New Zealand, add Finland, Norway and Denmark and it will become obvious that women are very effective when it gets hot in our homes. These leaders demonstrate an alternative leadership style, writes Forbes in his article. What do they teach us? Truth German Chancellor Angela Merkel reacted early to the threat of the epidemic calmly and told her fellow citizens that it was a serious virus and would infect about 70% of the population.Determination One of the leaders who was the first to act quickly was Taiwanese President Tsai Inwen. Back in January, when the first signs of the new disease appeared, it introduced 124 separate measures to prevent the spread of the virus, without resorting to strict quarantine measures, which began to be introduced in other countries. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the quarantine early and made it clear that a state of emergency was being imposed in the country - and explained why. Technologies Iceland, led by Prime Minister Catherine Jacobsdottir, was offering free COVID-19 tests to all citizens. In December, Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin became the youngest prime minister in the world. The millennial leader had to lead the fight against the coronavirus. Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has used an innovative idea to communicate with children through television.She has answered children’s questions from from all over the country, explaining why the feeling of fear in such conditions is normal. Generally, the empathy and concern shown by the women leaders of these countries seems to have emerged in a parallel universe. That universe is very different from what we are used to.
