Jane Goodall's Legacy
Jane as a Leader
Jane is a paternalistic and democratic leader as she leads by example in the way she conducts herself every day. In her field strong words and decisive actions only go so far, an even-mannered temperment and ability to listen to others is what makes her so successful. She transformed her field and now advocates for animals everywhere and she did so without ever picking up a gun or screaming into a microphone. Her impact has been felt, and will be continued due to her courageous and outside the box thinking and overwhelming patience and kindess.
