About Us

The Dyson model of leadership integrates the research of Preskill and Brookfield (2009) with the assertion that learning is a way of leading. Our programming emphasizes the importance of continued learning, collaborating, and listening to the people around you. When leaders are learners, they create structures, strategies, and opportunities for individual and communal growth. Individuals in our program come to realize that learning is sometimes a means to an end and other times learning is the important end in itself. At Dyson, we believe leadership can be practiced by anyone and from any position. Leadership is not a function of hierarchical position or dominated by a single person in a position of authority. Instead, leadership involves the ability to foster relations and to create a collective learning environment that results in goals being met and positive change. Learning as a way of leadership is facilitative rather than directive, and this calls for leaders to create environments that are inclusive, participatory, service-oriented, and conducive to growth and well-being. To develop student leaders at Dyson, we focus on Seemiller’s eight categories of competencies: Learning and reasoning Self-Awareness and development Interpersonal interaction Group dynamics Communication Civic responsibility Strategic planning Personal behavior The skills we focus on developing are noted below from the World Economic Forum, and transcend the Dyson ethos: Our Business is a Better World.
