About the Webinar: This DAI “Meeting Of The Minds” Webinar is a repeat of the session we held on 29/30 April. It is a live event, not the recording of the first session, and both presenters will delve more deeply into the topic, and there will be time for Q&A.

These are challenging times and call for innovative methods. Two nursing homes decided to draw upon and apply the teaching and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. Montessori believed the most important task of a teacher was not to teach but to observe the students and create an environment that encouraged students to teach themselves and each other what they needed to know when they needed to know it. She achieved amazing results! Similarly, amazing results are achieved when her approach is applied to persons living with Dementia, such as a dramatic reduction in drug use to control unpleasant or aggressive behaviours, reduction in staff & resident injuries, and an increase in level of activity of residents.

How powerful it would be if these same principles were applied at the same time to front line staff and those who supervise them. Effectively, this would create a new architecture for workplace culture, making it possible for employees to be the best versions of themselves as often as possible. We will review two case studies from organizations on their successful journey to breathe Montessori Inspired Principles into their organizations. It’s a Human Thing®
