In this video the speaker, a man, explains why so many leaders are incompetent. His answer: It’s because many leaders are not as good as they think they are. In other words, they deceive themselves (and others) about their level of competence. He explains, quite confidently so, that men are more prone to this self-deception than women and therefore, we can improve the quality of leadership by putting more women in leadership positions.
This video is unwittingly funny because he mentions Angela Merkel as the prime example of a competent female leader. There can hardly be any doubt that Angela Merkel was completely incompetent and that the German people stand in the ruins of her failed policies. No matter where you stand on the Ukraine issue, it was a catastrophic mistake to make Germany completely dependend on Russian energy.
The speaker is incompetent because he lets his political leanings interfere with objective analysis.
Mrs. Merkel was incompetent because she stubbornly and consistently resisted all warnings and good counsel not only on the Russia issue but on many other important issues as well.
