Speech about the characteristics of a good leader by Christine Lagarde honours Angela Merkel. It is one strong leader giving a tribute to another strong leader and worth a read. Angela Merkel's leadership will be felt for many years in the future.

Lagarde will be president of the European Central Bank in November.

"4. Conclusion

Angela Merkel is facing up to these questions with an abiding sense of duty, with great humility, and a profound optimism.

As she once put it: “ Let us not ask what is wrong or what has always been. Let us first ask what is possible and look for something that has never been done before.” [viii]

Over the past thirty years, Angela Merkel has embodied this spirit of courage and leadership. By striking the right note, by writing her own well-tempered music, she has shown us that we, too, can step into a wide-open future.

Nobody can see through the veil of time, but I sincerely believe that the music of Angela Merkel’s life will not only resonate with this generation, with these graduates, or even with Germany only, but with generations of people from all over the world."
