Who is Barack Obama?

I just came across Twitter profile of Barack Obama (if you don’t like him, it doesn’t matter – start reading this post from at least a neutral perspective).

Have you seen it?

Did you notice something?

Do you know how the (former) most powerful man on this planet refers to himself in the first place?

In his eyes, his most important role is not a political one, not related to his country, not related to his power.

He is dad. Not even “father”, but exactly that – a dad! In second place he is a husband. President, and citizen come after family.

We may be ashamed(?) to show our love and commitment for the family. We may consider it unprofessional(?).

But think about it for a moment – does Obama seem “weaker” to you by referring to himself as dad first? Or the contrary? Does he convey the message of power, stability, and reliability?

I clearly se the latter.

What does it teach us?

What does it teach us about leadership?

What does it teach us about parenthood?

What will be different for you from now on?
