Former US President, Barack Obama has said that women make better leaders than men.
He made this statement while speaking in Singapore on saying, that even though we women aren’t perfect, we are “indisputably better” than men.
Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you’re better than us [men].
I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything… living standards and outcomes.
However, women in leadership positions wasn’t the only thing he talked about. When he was asked if he would consider going back into political leadership, he said:
If you look at the world and look at the problems it’s usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way.
It is important for political leaders to try and remind themselves that you are there to do a job, but you are not there for life, you are not there in order to prop up your own sense of self importance or your own power.
