Jacinda Ardern: A New Kind of Leader [9780750996068]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

New Zealand's prime minister has been hailed as a leader for a new generation, tired of inaction in the face of issues such as climate change and far-right terrorism. She is only the second world leader to give birth while in office. Her grace and compassion following the Christchurch mosque shooting captured the world's attention. Oprah Winfrey invited us to 'channel our inner Jacindas' as praise for Ardern flooded headlines and social media.

The ruler of this remote country even made the cover of Time and in recent months has been widely applauded for her response to the global pandemic. In this revealing biography, journalist Madeleine Chapman discovers the woman behind the headlines.

Always politically engaged and passionate, Ardern is uncompromising and astute. She has encountered her fair share of sexism, but rather than let that harden her, she advocates 'rising above' disparagers. In her first press conference, she announced an election campaign of 'relentless positivity'.

The tactic was a resounding success: donations poured in and Labour rebounded in the polls.

But has Ardern lived up to her promise? What political concessions has she had to make? And beyond the hype, what does her new style of leadership look like in practice?


AUTHOR: Madeleine Chapman is the co-author of Steven Adams' bestselling autobiography Steven Adams: My Life, My Fight (Penguin Random House NZ) and a staff writer at The Spinoff. She was named the 2018 Young Business Journalist of the Year.
