YEAR IN REVIEW | ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP

It can't be true... I'm already done with my first year of college?? Remember my very first blog I said that "I was beyond nervous to start this new adventure but I felt somewhat ready and excited."? I can remember my first week here at CMU like it was yesterday. Never knowing what to expect but... Continue Reading →

LDR 200 REFLECTION

The bigger and badder LDR 100; LDR 200. This was the second course I've taken with my LAS cohort of the year and yes it has leadership written all over it. The goal of this course was to give us a better understanding of theoretical, philosophical, and conceptual foundations of leadership. OR, for a less... Continue Reading →

SPECIAL EVENTS LEAD TEAM

A part of my protocol for LAS is to be active on a LEAD team and since I'm pretty fond of coordinating events I chose to join the Special Events/Social LEAD Team. I had a lot of excitement for this team because our main purpose/goal was to provide unique and interesting opportunities for LAS cohorts and... Continue Reading →

LAS-in-the-D

Wow! LAS-in-the-D was such a successful trip jam-packed with so many new memories and learning outcomes. Detroit felt and looked so different than I expected (haven't been to the city in almost 2 years) and we, LAS, truly had a blast. Planned for the trip was a visit with the students at Jalen Rose Leadership... Continue Reading →

He examined the way they think, act, and communicate and came to the conclusion that effective leaders start with "why". Sinek's quote, "People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it," explains how great leaders... Continue Reading →

LEADERSHIP = “YES!”

My professor for one of my leadership courses posed this question: "Does leadership come from a 'yes' or a 'no'?" I'm not going to lie, this question tripped me up quite a bit. I wasn't sure what it meant or how to answer it. Of course, my professor instructed that we either side with "yes"... Continue Reading →

DEBATE? debate.

Going into my Introduction to Debate class this semester I was slightly concerned with how well I would do in the class. I had never taken a public speaking class or debate class, and in the past speaking in front of others used to terrify me. Before Introduction to Debate I felt confident enough to...

SPARK LEADERSHIP

Going into Spark Leadership I had no idea what to expect. I didn't know much about the program except for the fact that it was required for my scholarship. I thought it was going to be like every other leadership training where we get split up into groups and go through a series of team... Continue Reading →
