Win as a Charismatic Leader Has Inspired Other's

Looks for others who are aligned with her thinking

Socialized Charismatic “…. I think part of it is just sharing some of the knowledge I have and talking to them about the cases and what it means to the people that are incarcerated…..One of the things that I try to do is introduce them to someone who has been wrongly convicted and allow them to transport themselves from their lives and into the shoes of others…. I really try to make them understand that this type of thing could truly happen to anyone. I also stay in touch through email and office visits as much as I can.” The Vision Component Q: What are your long term goals for AIDWYC and how are you going about achieving them?

A: My biggest goal for AIDWYC would be for them to go out of business! Entrepreneurial Style Demonstrated ability to think outside the box

Fights for the Underdog

Uses Enthusiasm and Charisma to Persade

Works Tenaciously

Dislikes Formal rules and Regulations Considerate Behaviour Leader is friendly and approachable

Keeps the group aware of new developments

Proven to improve worker motivation and job satisfaction The answer lies within the leader themselves Weak Points Thank You!

Presented by:
Ian Perry and Nick Murchie Biggest Fears "I am fearful that one day AIDWYC will make a mistake...
that we will look over someone who is innocent, or believe someone
who is guilty...." Tenacity is good, compassion is good

Tenacity + Compassion = Carelessness Creating Frustrations Dislikes the formal rules of wronful conviction appeals

Necessary process

Unnecessary Frustrations Too Compassionate? Limited Resources = Limited Abilities

Could possibly discard someone who is in fact useful to the
organization AKA
Beggar's can't be chooser's Assessment of Leadership Ability Excellent leader who has an intrinsic ability to lead
Recommendation as a boss: conduct a SWOT analysis
Feedback if we were her boss: become more self critical Intersections of Race, Gender and Equality Win will take anyone as a volunteer as long as the passion is there

Applicants often come from low income backgrounds who can't afford their own legal services
