There's a lot of reflections around at the moment about New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. And rightly so in my view. She exemplifies for me what a Heart-Leader sounds like.
Next month my book on Heart-Leadership will be published. It's been a labour of love that began in 2017. I've been researching, writing and workshopping content in earnest for the past six months. Along the way I've been on the look out for role models amongst well known people as well as my clients.
I've observed Australian cricket coach Justin Langer as a Heart-Leader. Human rights activist, Television presenter and former Socceroos captain Craig Foster is one too. Richmond Football Club (not mine yet is my brothers club) President Peggy O'Neal is definitely a Heart-Leader.
Jacinda Ardern is a prime example of a Heart-Leader
I particularly like numbers 3, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
I love this piece about Jacinda on getting your message across by my friend and colleague Michael Dodd.
This podcast by Eleanor Ainge Roy perhaps gets to the heart of the matter that a key to Jacinda's success is kindness, one of the eight heart qualities I explore in Heart-Leadership.
