Soon, Ursula von der Leyen will be able to show what you can. A lot will change not only the style. And easy it is not to be. After all, the glitches will be forgotten in the hearings soon. A month too late today, the EU is expected to agree to Parliament the Start of the new President of the Commission and of their Teams. On 1. December, will replace Ursula von der Leyen and Jean-Claude Juncker officially in office.
On Sunday, Ursula von der Leyen, from the simple office in the Annex building in the 13. Floor of the Berlaymont can move. In the shadow of the mighty headquarters of the EU Commission has prepared Ursula von der Leyen, the last few weeks. It has been parked for a dozen officers. First insights in the mode of operation are therefore possible. At eight, she leaves her closest employees for the short morning meeting to compete. Of the Leyen, jovial in their dealings, may it but be efficient and holds a little bit of talkativeness.
bed in the office
The day is finished at 20 with a standing round. A pizza delivery service brings food. Anyone who has small children, is allowed to go home. Not all want to keep up with the pace of work. Von der Leyen effort to find people for her Cabinet had last apparently. And the pressure is likely to increase over in the Berlaymont rather. The new Boss has on the 13. Floor in addition to the office is a 25 square meter Studio set up.
There, she wants to sleep during the week. This has given rise to talk in the Brussels bubble much. Some attest to the Juncker successor already in bunker mentality. Von der Leyen can tilt from the office straight to bed and sleep. So she has made as a Minister in Berlin, too. The weekend belonged to the family in lower Saxony. But the seven children are now flown all grown up and out.
closing with alcohol

According to Juncker's witty debauchery, including the kiss greetings a rich return of asceticism and almost Calvinistic work ethic. Alcohol does not drink of the Leyen, most times a glass of champagne to the new year. Image and message control will be in the next five years is important.

Today, Ursula von der Leyen will try before the confirmation election, however, to score points with content. You want to present in the first 100 days, among other things, its "Green Deal". Europe should be in 2050 to be the first carbon neutral continent. Also a reboot on the dispute issue of Migration is planned for the first six months.
today they will be performing in front of the EU Parliament sure what you mean by the "geo-political Commission", which it has announced. Europe must learn the language of Power, von der Leyen said recently. The so-called Soft Power, not more rich, if the Europeans wanted in the world.

for 14 years, Ursula von der Leyen served as a Minister in the government of Chancellor Angela Merkel. Now you will Head about 35'000 EU civil servants and will earn a gross salary of 300'000 Euro more than your current Boss.
Ursula von der Leyen is the new number one in Brussels, and at the same time in a complex power triangle wedged. A climate deal must not only find in the Council of Ministers, the chamber of States of the member States, but also in the EU Parliament with a majority.

alpha males in the Team
One challenge will be to keep the alpha animals in the College in the bridle. Ursula von der Leyens first Deputy, Frans Timmermans, a social Democrat from the Netherlands, would like to become himself President of the Commission, and is convinced that he could have done it better. Also between the more neo-liberal competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager and Commissioner for industry, Thierry Breton, a State interventionists from France, are tensions inevitable.
