Someone rightly said, ‘Leadership isn’t about the title or position, it is about the action and example”. The Prime Minister of Dutch, Mark Rutte has lived to this quality of leadership. Mark Rutte is one of the very popular and respected leaders of the world and is known for his humility.
Recently, he has been making a lot of news because of the viral video of him. The video is about the recent incident when the Prime Minister accidentally spilled the coffee. However, what caught everyone’s attention was what he did after that.
Nederland veilig en stabiel houden en zorgen dat er genoeg banen zijn zodat mensen vooruit kunnen. Dat vind ik de belangrijkste taken van de politiek. Daarom zijn ons lidmaatschap van de EU in een instabiele wereld en de strijd tegen klimaatverandering de komende tijd heel grote onderwerpen. Ik ben in de afgelopen jaren anders over die onderwerpen gaan denken.
PM Mark Rutte, didn’t wait for the cleaning staff after he spill the coffee, he himself started cleaning the floor using a mob.
Yes, you read that right. He himself started cleaning the floor and as soon as the cleaning staff saw him cleaning the floor, they started applauding for the gesture of PM. His actions have gained him respect and appreciation from people around the world.
Ik heb er zin in. Vandaag gaan we vol energie verder met de onderhandelingen voor een nieuw kabinet. Het was goed om de afgelopen weken even afstand te nemen. Iedereen was moe na een lange campagne die direct overging in de lange formatie. Nu we allemaal zijn uitgerust, kunnen we weer hard aan het werk. Zorgvuldigheid is nu belangrijk. Want er moeten grote vraagstukken worden opgelost. En we zitten met vier heel verschillende partijen aan tafel, die soms heel verschillend over die vraagstukken denken. Ik hoop dat we de komende tijd grote stappen kunnen zetten op weg naar een nieuw kabinet. Nederland verdient een kabinet dat snel aan de slag gaat.
While a few people were mocking him for his act, many people are considering him as an inspiration. Many people were also comparing the mentality of Indian politicians to him. His actions have given a glimpse of the mentality that other political leaders project.
Here, have a look at the viral video here:
