Jacinda Arden has won support from across the world for bringing a fresh style to politics; empathetic leadership. In an era when many nations have turned to leaders who emphasize strength, threats, posturing and even bullying, she has advocated a different way.

Arden explains here how it actually takes courage and strength to be an empathetic leader, and reminds us that since we teach our children to live with kindness, empathy and compassion, we should also encourage our political leaders to model these. Rather than blaming others, she advocates a political leadership that steps up to solve problems above scapegoating people.
