Why Attend?

Montessori education aids the optimum development of human beings from birth to maturity. This course is designed for Montessori leaders who seek personal fulfillment and competency in their lives and work through their own optimum adult development as transformational leaders. Leading schools and educational communities that educate for human potential is a profession requiring its own comprehensive toolbox. Each course offers a hands-on, experiential and applied approach to the skills and concepts of a transformational leadership methodology within a “whole school” Montessori context. It offers participants an understanding of how to lead in the midst of change and complexity in an ever-evolving world. Modules include the inner work of the leader in developing self-differentiation, courage, clarity, compassion and presence in the Montessori workplace. Now, more than ever, Montessori schools need conscious, inspired, and wholehearted leaders who are equipped to advocate for a sustainably healthy community for children, families, and staff. At the heart of any Montessori leader’s work is love of the child and the capacity to activate a community in service to each stage of life.
