Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

On the Process of Becoming an Authentic Servant-Leader at the Cellular Level through Practicing the Principles of Interpersonal Neurobiology
by Gilbert, Faith Renae Regh, Ph.D., Gonzaga University, 2018, 341; 27735423
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to explore how recursive processing of meaningful language, expressed through resonant relationships, generates the neural architecture that is integral to the process of becoming an authentic servant-leader. Meaningful language does not sit in an isolated silo or echo silently in a vacuum; rather, it is intricately intertwined with the relational occurrences of everyday life. It plays a significant role in the formation and transformation of a person’s mind, brain, thoughts, behaviors, and identity. The principles underlying the power of meaningful language, resonant relationships, and interpersonal neurobiology provide neuroscientific substantiation that changes in physical, mental, and emotional behavior can become indelible actualities in the identity formation of an authentic servant-leader.
