Marcial Francisco Losada
1939 - 2020
Almost 3 years before his passing, Marcial Losada wrote about his life. From his origins to his hobbies. From his need for silence to his call to serve with love. From his curiosity to his view of death. He is dearly missed by many not only for his extraordinary wit and intelligence but for being a great example of love on Earth.
Marcial Losada's Legacy
Marcial's words were never randomly chosen. They were always intentional, scientific and poetic. His speeches around the world deeply impacted many but those who knew him could say the same after a simple conversation with him.
Marcial only left memories of love, laughter and devotion to all friends and family who had the privilege to be close to and learn from him. His family misses him dearly and incessantly. However, his smile, positive energy and love will never be forgotten.
Marcial never understood why people had to suffer in the workplace and in their relationships. He devoted his entire life studying Math, Physics and Psychology to discover the true link between love, learning and flourishing. Meta Learning is a gift to mankind.
Dr. Losada was a brilliant investigator into group process using the best observational methods and most sophisticated data analyses. His breakthrough laboratory revealed the secrets of group coalitions and power politics in action as he provided instant replay to demonstrate these processes in action. No one has ever come close to Dr. Losada’s brilliant insights. He was also a superb Renaissance man, very learned and wise. To further praise Dr. Losada, he was a very good man, caring, humble, and very gracious. I’m very sad that he is gone. The world has lost a great human being.
