In 2016 during her study Theology at the Evangelische Broeder Gemeente Suriname (Moravian Congregation), her interest increased in missiology. As guideline she used the practical theology principles articulated by Richard Osmer:

  1. What is going on? (the descriptive-empirical task)
  2. Why is this going on? (the interpretative task)
  3. What ought to be going on? (the normative task)
  4. How might we respond? (the pragmatic task)

Felicia E.L. Tilborg re-evaluated these principles, and excluded the 2nd formulation when fulfilling her purpose as Urban Missionary. She described that the "why" should be the solution to the challenge "Why will you respond?" This awareness lead to completion of the 1-2-3 theory decribed in Felicia Tilborg's Practicum.

Executing the 3-step theory for personal and professional development according to Felicia Tilborg's Practicum with examples:

Personal development process based on the 1-2-3 theory

1. Passion

  • Be passionate during each step and progression that leads you towards achievement of the goal (even if you don't see instant results)

2. Action

  • Daily focus on 1 particular task you'd like for your coachee to accomplish, and seek the supportive environment and tools.
  • Execute in small portions daily, and maintain the persistance of the task.

3. Satisfaction

  • The passion and the action are the main ingredients to self and/or surroundings satisfaction.

Coaching methode according to Felicia Tilborg's Practicum

1. Love & care

  • Build up an appropriate relationship with your coachee.

2. Believe in coachee's potential

  • Create an environment and offer tools leading to exploitation of coachee's fullest potential. 

3. Cherish every moment & embrace each accomplishment

  • Use open ending questions conversations and show mutual respect. Your coachee will often be more responsive to learn any given task if you show interest in their way of thinking. Avoid questions such as: "What do you want to become when you grow up?" ask instead: "What do you want to become and why?" Find supportive tools to achieve that goal in the present moment. If the coachee changes it's objective, ask the same question and continue to work towards that goal.

1. Love & care
2. Believe in their potential
3. Cherish each moment & embrace each accomplishment

Felicia Tilborg's Practicum underlines that disturbance in any of these 3 element, may result into imballancement during the process. The e-motion (energy in motion) may reflect negative impulses as a result thereof, which eventually decrease the coachee's self-esteem and potential to achieve self-actualization as described in the Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

Abraham Harold Maslow

Abraham Harold Maslow, an American psychologist who was best known for creating a theory in which the fullfillment of the human needs are prioritized and the psychological health process to self-actualization are formulated. In his theory Maslow's hierarchy of needs, the human needs are ordered and should be mostly satisfied before someone would give their attention to the next highest need. The hierarchy of human needs model suggests that human needs will only be fulfilled one level at a time. According to Maslow's theory, when a human being ascends the levels of the hierarchy, one may eventually achieve self-actualization.

Felicia E.L. Tilborg's observation working with people from different ages and various backgrounds, is that self-actualization could be obtained and noticeable each 12 months after birth. Felicia Tilborg's Practicum uses an age appropriate growth and development assesments as tool to administrate each progress reached. The peak abilities observed, she describes as the individual's self-actualization experience at that particular moment in life. Annual growth and development assesments can detect any advancements, but also disabilities, disorders, starting at a child's preliminary stage. These observations can result in a more accurate action plan to execute, in best interest of each human being's growth and development process. Felicia E.L. Tilborg's results are compiled experiences from individuals whom have shown significant results by use of Felicia Tilborg's Practicum|- 1-2-3 theory Portfolios

Felicia Tilborg's Inspiration

Beyond the needs of fulfillment, moments of extra ordinary experiences were envisioned by Maslow. Individuals with these qualities known as ‘Peak Experiences’, encounter wholeness, self-sufficient in an holistic way. These experiences occur mostly by people whom reached the self-actualizing stage in life.

Later writings of Maslow’s theory have shown a more inclusive model in addition to the intense peak experiences, derived from the Indian scientist and yoga practitioner U.A. Asrani and named the Plateau Experience. The shift from Peak to Plateau experience Maslow relates to the natural aging process. This shift in life values is a personal experience, reflects what is actually important in one’s life and what is not.

Furthermore ‘The Great Didactic,’ is 'The Whole Art of Teaching all Things to all Man,' written by Czech philosopher, pedagogue and theologian John Amos Comenius. In The Great Didactic Comenius recommended learning from nature outside its school contexts. Comenius argues that learning should extend beyond the classroom, which takes place in everyday life. Contact with objects in the environment made accumulating information more accessible and relevant to children's interests and life needs.

As an educator of the 21st century, Felicia Tilborg uses a transdiciplinary approach. This provides assistance in development towards self-actualization, which is the fundament of Felicia Tilborg's 3-step theory. It shapes each individual at their own pace and, reaches self-fulfillment according to their age and maturity level. Felicia Tilborg’s Practicum is a practical life-long-learning strategy that creates age appropriate environments consisting parents, family, friends, educators and (academic) life coaches. The (academic) life coaches make it their duty to offer daily meeting services to assist their assigned attendee to successfully grow from childhood to adulthood. The skills used are contextual, mastery based and student-centered. Although there are diverse learning principles, Felicia Tilborg’s Practicum research has shown that in addition to each individual's daily environment, (Academic) Life Coaches are beneficial to achieve a successful life-long learning experience.
