In an article written by Forbes, different countries like Germany, Taiwan, New Zealand, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Denmark were cited as epitome of a true leadership in amidst of crisis. 

This is for how they effectively lessen the threat and save their people from the pandemic. Thanks to their leaders for wielding their power in line of humanity.

These countries are fortunate enough to run by mighty women leaders who got the best coronavirus responses. Just like Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany who reminds us to stood up and address the problem with nothing but the truth. 

And of course, no one beats the decisiveness of Tsai Ing-wen’s in Taiwan and Jacinda Ardern in New Zealand  who have the first and fastest move to block the spread of the virus. No wonder why Taiwan only have six COVID-19 fatalities while New Zealand only counts four.

It is also astonishing how Iceland's Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir  and Finland's Sanna Marin spearheaded the problem with the use of technology. Iceland offered free coronavirus testing to all its citizens while Finland used its social media influencers to spread fact-based information on managing the pandemic. 

Norway’s Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, on the other hand, dealt the problem with love as she talked to her country's children explaining why is it okay to be scared.

The story of these women is a proof that one can effectively lead without  terrifying his or her members with the power he or she beholds. Women are naturally empathetic which make them understanding of what drives people. 

They listen and reasonably think of an action with beneficence.  Women as leaders do not only recognize their responsibility but also embrace their members with  compassion which men should actually learn from.
