Leadership : Erna Solberg

Women leaders make a difference.

"Norway’s Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, had the innovative idea of using television to talk directly to her country’s children. She was building on the short, 3-minute press conference that Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen had held a couple of days earlier. Solberg held a dedicated press conference where no adults were allowed. She responded to kids’ questions from across the country, taking time to explain why it was OK to feel scared. The originality and obviousness of the idea takes one’s breath away. How many other simple, humane innovations would more female leadership unleash?"

During this pandemic, like in strange times, it becomes more obvious than ever what kind of leaders we are surrounded by. What are the most outstanding traits that have the leaders who are in the first line of action in these times?. We dare to say that empathy is one of them and Erna Solberg has it.

Erna Solberg (Norwegian: born 24 February 1961) is a Norwegian politician serving as Prime Minister of Norway since 2013 and Leader of the Conservative Party since May 2004.

Inspired by Margaret Thatcher's "Iron Lady" nickname, Solberg has been given the nickname "Iron Erna"

Early life and education

Solberg had some struggles at school and at the age of 16 was diagnosed as suffering from #dyslexia . She was, nevertheless, an active and talkative contributor in the classroom. In her final year as a high-school student in 1979, she was elected to the board of theSchool Student Union of Norway, and in the same year led the national charity event Operasjon Dagsverk, in which students collected money forJamaica.

In 1986, she graduated with her cand .mag. degree in sociology, political science, statistics and economics from the University of Bergen. In her final year, she also led the Students' League of the Conservative Party in Bergen

Solberg became the head of government after winning the general election on 9 September 2013 and was appointed Prime Minister on 16 October 2013. Solberg is Norway's second female Prime Minister after Gro Harlem Brundtland.
