Ecosysytem of the President

I really do not want my pictures in your offices, for the President is not an Icon, an Idol or a Potrait.
Hang your kids photos instead and look at them each time you are making a decision ---- Zelenskiy, Ukraine's New President

‘Wood Wide Web’—the underground network of microbes that connects trees presents an intresting analogy for humanity.

Trees, from the mighty redwoods to slender dogwoods, would be nothing without their microbial sustainance. Millions of species of fungi and bacteria swap nutrients between soil and the roots of trees, forming a vast, interconnected web of organisms throughout the woods.

Presidency should be a reflection of Citizenship , just like the microbs in the Wood Wide Web, leadership is nothing without the teaming support of millions of followership
Citizens/People of any Nation should have 12 broad benchmark components.

Environment and quality of life,
State of talent and the human condition,
Talent development,
Economy Components,
Global connectedness,
Economic robustness,
Entrepreneurial ecosystem,
Innovation capacity,
Institutions Components: (freedom of speech, trust, expression and access to content)
Safety and security,
Public services.

Lets Review 3 countries in the Emerging 5:

Comparing India to the two countries that are closest in socio-economic terms, Nigeria and the Philippines, India outperforms Nigeria on all but two components, Freedom and Inclusivity, and does better than the Philippines on Talent Development, Public Services, and Innovation.

Particularly notable is India’s weaker performance on inclusivity across the board. Among the many gaps, consider the low participation of women in the workforce. For India, women constitute 24.5% of the workforce, whereas Nigeria has the highest ratio of female to male labor force participation — 84% as many women in the labor force as there are men, compared to the EM5 average of 63%.  The Philippines has a 40% female labor force and laws mandating equal pay for men
and women.

Every citizen in the pyramid matters; uneven performance against its peers and global benchmarks will only serve to impact growth and global significance.
