Transformative learning creates a shift in who we are being
In this interview,Joe DiMaggio introduces "transformative learning", and shares the view that there's a particular way of knowing that alters how we experience life. In contrast to the more familiar "informative learning", learning that is transformative is based on direct personal discovery rather than remembering what you've learned and working hard to apply it. As a result, you naturally find yourself being more effective and happier.
Having a "say" in how life occurs for you is a key element of "transformative learning"
There's a strong relationship between speaking in a particular way and our ability to be happy and effective. Language is more than representing or describing the world. It has the power to create our reality through a particular way of speaking called a "speech act." We have the power to be happy by saying ("declaring") that "I'm happy" and to live our lives from this place.
