Discovering Early Experiences that Correlate to an Empowered and Flourishing Adulthood - American Montessori Society 2019 Conference - Washington, DC - USA

Engrained in the field of Positive Psychology, this research in the area of Transformational Leadership explores experiences that contribute to a life of empowerment and flourishing.  The research was ontological/phenomenological in nature and used narrative inquiry to gather stories from participants.  

This exploration is transformational in nature as it seeks to discover experiences that allowed for transformation to occur, and in the process of listening from the future, stands on flourishing and empowerment, creating a space where whatever is, is perfect.   

This inquiry was a positive one, an appreciative one.  I welcomed my own transformation and the invitation for transformation that I might be able to extend from my journey.  I believe that finding experiences that are correlated to a life of flourishing can bring opportunities for transformation in the world.  I further believe that if some of these experiences can be shared with conscious parents and teachers or any other significant adult in the life of a child, the chances for increasing flourishing in the planet multiply.

The research focused on exploring experiences during childhood that correlate to an adult life of empowerment and flourishing Of particular interest was observing whether unconditional loving is present in those experiences as the common foundational element associated with empowerment and flourishing. Based on this narrowed interest, the research question was defined as: What are some of the experiences during childhood that correlate to an adult life of empowerment and flourishing and is unconditional loving a common element in the majority of them?

There were sub-questions that were explored in parallel with this main research question:

  • If unconditional loving is not the common element in the majority of experiences that correlate to an adult life of empowerment and flourishing, what is?

  • Is there a particular “significant adult” that played a key role during childhood, in the future capacity of living a life of empowerment and flourishing? (teacher, parent, caregiver, family member, mentor, etc.)

  • What are the “ways of being” of that significant adult that were a manifestation of unconditional loving, or that were the basis for a life of empowerment and flourishing.

Performance is a core measure of fulfillment, as well as a reflection of it.  Organizations both for profit corporations and non-profits aim to increase levels of performance and can achieve only so far with current resources, tools and technologies. Increasing levels of performance is also crucial in sports, academic pursuits and personal relationships, any area of our lives in which we aim to be more fulfilled calls for an acceleration in performance. This course presents an invitation to actively explore participants’ own humanity and unveil what has been hidden as “blind spots” that ultimately limit performance.

Only LEADERS can drive performance to superior levels, only people who have actively developed themselves as leaders can break through stagnation and reach unprecedented performance breakthroughs, at a personal and team levels and in all aspects of life: work, family, well-being, social contribution or spiritual fulfillment.

Based on an ontological exploration that happens in an experiential way, and drawing on quantum physics, neuroscience, transformational leadership and cutting edge organizational research, the course guides participants into discovering purpose, declaring commitment, creating radically new futures and unveiling the source of power to generate themselves as leaders and accelerate performance in any area of their lives, be it managing teams, achieving professional results, solving pressing issues or transforming personal relationships – including those with themselves and, as a result, the organizations in which they are part of, will experience accelerated levels of performance
