The purpose of writing Adverse Childhood Experiences and Transformational Leadership at The Bowery Mission was to develop an understanding of the relationship of between childhood trauma and leadership styles at that institution.
Chapter 1 begins by describing the Bowery Mission and its environs. It develops the association between the transformational leadership and the community then asks the question ‘what exactly is the tangible relationship?’ Then there is the introduction of the MLQ and CTQ.
Chapter 2 provides literature and foundation for researching childhood maltreatment and leadership. It develops how childhood maltreatment causes numerous physical, psychological and spiritual effects later in life. Subsequently there is documentation on the literature relating adverse childhood experiences to transformational leadership as well as a section on transformational leadership at non-profits like The Bowery Mission.
Chapter 3 sets forth the qualitative and quantitative research methodology utilized in approaching the question of statistical relationships between childhood adverse experiences and transformational leadership amongst the leaders at the Bowery Mission. It discusses how and where the interviews were performed and demographics that help round out each individual’s background.
Chapter 4 presents an analysis of data. Leaders are first analyzed individually and then as a group. Statistical data is presented depicting correlations between maltreatment and leadership style. There were no statistical correlations found between transformational behaviors and childhood maltreatments. A number of participants indicated that their poor experiences made them particularly suited to lead similarly hurting individuals.
Chapter 5 assesses the data. It concludes that transformation takes place despite the lack of statistical correlation. Further research might include a retest in six months with a larger participant group.
