Non-linear Leadership

Leadership is NOT the black and white formula most say it is. Andy Deaza has creatively conquered leadership in a non-linear way throughout his life, and career. The formula he teaches embraces a wide spectrum of styles and options that allows anyone with the desire and interest to lead to developing their own path toward the influence they seek. Today’s leader doesn’t fit any one mold, nor do they remain stagnant in their techniques. Flexible, adaptive styles are necessary to lead in today’s dynamic and diverse college communities.

Coming out of this program, participants will be better equipped to embrace non-linear leadership, community building, and collaboration. Andy aims to empower students to creatively approach finding their footing in the world, no matter their professional pursuits. With the openness of a growth mindset, and resilience anyone can creatively conquer leadership.
