What you need to know:

  • Merkel’s choice to let her feminine side dominate was a breath of fresh air.
  • Empathy, compassion and humility are the traits that made Merkel stand out. 

One of my favourite pictures of outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel captures her staring at former US President Donald Trump, hands on the table in front of her. Trump is seated with arms crossed listening to what seems like a stern conversation with Merkel.
