 January 18th, 2016 Welcome to Equitable Society Leadership brought to you by the Universal Alliance Partners. The Universal Alliance created a vision to share with civil society so that we can trust our leaders to operate within an environment of integrity, accountability and transparency. What are the leadership characteristics that we should seek to build an Equitable Society with a new approach that will bring stability, prosperity and a direct democracy? In this video we will look at the principles for sound governance within any enterprises of society applicable to our elected leaders, our public servants, entrepreneurs and those fulfilling management positions. Peter Drucker, the father of modern management is defining leadership as lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.” The objective of this session is to provide the knowledge and the support for more people to invest in their personal growth and bring out our individual leadership skills to participate in the holistic planning of civil society. When we say “holistic planning” it requires a “holistic vision” meaning that our guidance and priorities for moving forward is inspired by a vision that considers all aspects of life. At this point of our evolution, we need to see the effects of the Global Corporate Governance to build an equitable society and guide our actions at all levels of governance because too many are following leaders that do not have a holistic vision for society. Hi my name is Eric Savoie. I was invited to participate as an auditor to a course from the University of New Brunswick, “Leadership in an Era of Deep Change.” Professor Dhirendra Shukla when asked what motivated them to offer this course responded, “We need a New System.” The New System proposed through the United Nations as demonstrated by our International Perspective – Global Governance Case Study is one of Public Administration for control rather than one of Direct Participatory Democracy. The new system proposed by the Universal Alliance Partners is designed to empower civil society to proceed with a holistic planning of our respective communities. Let us share with you the insights we had from analyzing the lectures from leadership in an era of deep change with the understanding we acquired through our case studies. For a new system to emerge from our times of deep change we need a new perspective on life and what shaped our existing governance exactly. In that regard, the guiding principles proposed by the Universal Alliance are in parallel with the Great Law of Peace. George Washington and Benjamin Franklin admired and were greatly influenced by the political system and concepts of the Five Nations of the Iroquois confederacy, located south of lake Ontario. The Great Law of Peace laid out a government “of the people, by the people and for the people” at the time the Four Founding Fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence and the United States of America Constitution. However the Founding Fathers initiated a governing system that did not offer Direct Democracy such as instilled by the Great Law of Peace, but one that led to a false democracy and a false sense of freedom. Knowing this fundamental knowledge gives us the opportunity to do the right things and empower the people to build the new governance from the bottom up that is beneficial for everyone. Please view the reference links leading to the resolution adopted by the Senate of the United States in 1988 and the wisdom from “The Great Law” video. It is very important to understand the history leading to our existing governance which is recognized by two hundred scholars who revised historical evidence that the oldest democracy isn’t the United States of America, but rather the Five Nations Confederacy of the Iroquois. This information is imperative to establish the foundation for Equitable Society Leadership, because the Universal Alliance Guiding Principles offers a structure for healthy governance in light of the wisdom offered by the Great Law of Peace. Seeking healthy governance, the leadership of society should be fully aware of these fundamental principles prior to put our trust into them, as they are the building blocks of a bottom up democratic approach by the people in order to share and agree to an inspiring vision for the future. In other words if the people cannot agree on moving forward, we will be imposed more control from a global network of public administration that oppresses all people. What can we do to avoid this situation? It is proposed within the Direct Democracy Blueprint – Turning Taxation into Dividends. Another important question to ask yourself regarding the trust you have into the leadership of society; Are we open to new information conflicting with our beliefs, or the beliefs of our peers? This is probably the most important characteristic to recognize prior to put y our trust into a representative, where many are subjected to the effect of cognitive dissonance, which is counterproductive to moving forward. “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that does not fit the core belief.” This means that, if we are not open to new information and facts, how can we participate in the holistic planning of society? The next point is how can we recognize the leaders who exploit their IQ potential for personal gains, or leaders who are self aware of their EQ to contribute to the common good? Like an iceberg, we can say that the Intellectual Quotient is 20% of our intellectual potential; our IQ is an assessment of logical intelligence. This intelligence seeks security, physical, and material satisfaction. To encourage personal growth we architected self-­‐awareness programs because as scientifically proven, our emotions are limiting us to evolve socially which is directly affecting our ability to move forward. Our Emotional Quotient represents 80% of our intelligence potential. Daniel Goleman introduced emotional Intelligence in the 90’s. It is about self-­‐
awareness, self-­‐regulation, self-­‐motivation, social awareness and social skills. This is the groundwork for our social evolution prior to understanding how each and every one of us can contribute to our political and economic evolution. Empathy and service to others, ability to negotiate with complexity, to leverage diversity, political awareness, being a catalyst for change, problem solving and team work. Emotional Intelligence is part of reducing conflict and corruption within all aspects of governance. Please view the reference links for the video where Daniel Goleman Introduces Emotional Intelligence, its really worth it. With this information in mind, we acknowledge our Leadership True North where civil society is driven towards Core Values & Principles, working within an environment of integrity, being inspired and inspiring others to encourage teamwork. To facilitate the productivity and efficiency of our Equitable Society leaders, we need to provide them with a support team to increase their abilities to be a catalyst for change within any enterprise of society. We need to support Equitable Society Leaders to fulfill their full potential and contributions to foster holistic planning of civil society and effectively facilitating the delivery of new and existing products and services to re-­‐vitalize the local economy. Aware of the “Case Studies” we should urgently address our priorities and act upon them. Since we have to create a new system, what type of society would you like to live in? One where the people are focused on physical material needs and a false sense of security while maintaining a mindset of illusion, ignorance & regression or facing reality and discovering the truth to progress? You have a choice to make. You can only pick one, and we are inviting you to build an equitable society through the Universal Alliance. The Universal Alliance shares the holistic vision to support the leaders who care to build a better world and facilitate collaboration within civil society. To set the stage for a new economic model will require a region willing to participate and mobilize efforts. The first topic of conversation proposed by the Universal Alliance is the Direct Democracy Blueprint; Turning Taxation into Dividends. At the heart of building an equitable society we all have the responsibility to align our internal compass to support more individuals striving for our leadership true north, leaders with core values and principles, integrity and the ability to inspire others. The Universal Alliance becomes a foundation for society based on human values. This presentation was prepared for you and your community. The Alliance Partners are at the service of society. The first step is to learn how we can create governance by consent.

Franklin's plan for a Grand Council of United Colonies resembles the Iroquois Grand Council." “There’s no separation of church and state in Iroquois society. Indeed, spirituality lies at the root of government and law.” “Today the League remains one of the best examples of democracy, self-­‐government and libertarian society on Earth.” “It is unfortunate that the Iroquois" central role in the creation of the United States government has apparently been a well-­‐kept secret. For The Great Law provides uniquely valuable instruction in the arts of politics and law, negotiation and diplomacy, disarmament and government.” Native American History for the Social Studies Classroom­‐american-­‐history-­‐for-­‐the-­‐social-­‐
