Leadership through the years
Who Is She?
What She Did
What was Emily Murphy involved in that made her a leader?
What actions did Murphy take to be seen as a leader?
THREE LEADERSHIP TRAITS EMILY MURPHY USED
Courage is not the absence of fear-- its inspiring others to move behind it
Murphy used this trait because, all the taunting, ridiculing, and even threats would obviously scare anyone, but she stayed tough through its all which led people to believe women are strong and if "just a women" could do it, anyone could. This inspired many to follow her because of her strength, making them feel safe.
Appearances matter-- and remember to smile
I feel as though Murphy uses this trait, by looking at her pictures, she looks like a normal woman living at that time, she was never incredibly beautiful, or incredibly rich. She was just a normal women who got to her place solely due to the amount of effort she put in. She was a leader that rose from the normal people, and that factor helped people to trust her. The followers knew she came from the same place as then and was fighting for the same values they wanted, because she had actually been in that position.
Nothing is black or white
At that time, the black and white was that men were superior to women, or men were people, women were not. This was just how things worked, yes people were upset about it, but nobody dared to change the system they knew for so long, until Emily Murphy and the Famous Five at least. Murphy thought to change the system and stop thinking in just one way, but to instead expand her way of thinking and change the world forever.
