New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern masters contemporary managing skills.
Whether it's her ability to see the others and care for them, understanding her role as head of state or using her words to accurately express and facilitate her goals.
We can find recognition, empathy, setting of norms and showing the way, creating a unity, motivating people, attending to their needs and safety and so addressing their wellbeing in different levels and areas of life.
Here are a few examples of how she does it
Recognition– that she cannot do this alone, it is in the hands of the people (in a democracy). I know it's not easy staying at home.
Empowerment – you made a decision, you are strong and you have made a huge meaningful choice, you are saving lives.
Bringing the team together – all New Zealanders have done this, together we could protect one another
Recognition – I see all groups of our community (children and parents). I recognize your needs and you are all equally important. I will speak to you as equals and as rational capable people (explaining the hardships)
Feeling Safe – I am taking care of your needs.
Empowerment – I trust you are strong enough to handle disappointment.
What has happened in Christchurch is an extraordinary act of unprecedented violence. It has no place in New Zealand. Many of those affected will be members of our migrant communities – New Zealand is their home – they are us.

Setting Norms –this is not ordinary, we will not allow this, they are us
Bringing the team together – our communities, they are us
Seeing ahead and leading – I know what may happen now and I want to prevent it
Feeling Safe – I see the danger and the hurt and I will do my best to keep you safe
To those who felt the quake – GNS have confirmed their assessment that it was M6.2 and 25km SW of Taumarunui. Widely felt across central NZ. Grabbing updates from officials but in the meantime, do check on those around you!

Recognition – I know you are afraid and want information
Feeling Safe– I am gathering more information, we are on it
Empowerment, bringing the team together, setting norms – you have a job to do, take care of others, you are not helpless, you can make a difference, we all need to take care of each other.
