Montessori Learners and the Work Place

Print Friendly

Here’s a Forbes article that highlights all of the critical life skills that Montessori students learn from the very beginning.  Life skills that translate into making them successful leaders and innovators as adults in the work force.  In a longitudinal study of what makes a strong leader, a key characteristic is being an unconventional thinker. “A question they [strong leaders] constantly ask themselves and others is, ‘why should something be like that?’ Every problem is viewed as solvable – as an opportunity – rather than an insurmountable barrier. Stellar leaders feel at home with ambiguity. They’re creative, imaginative and insatiably curious. They aren’t afraid to take risks or challenge the status quo.”
