0The Role of CTT in the Evolution of Human Consciousness Richard Barrett
1Research on Consciousness Role of CTTResearch on Consciousness
2When did consciousness begin? UNDERLYING THESIS OF MY RESEARCHFundamentally, everything in our physical world is primarily an energy field with a quantum existence. Nothing is fixed, everything exists as a field of opportunity.All energy fields arise from the zero-point energy field.‘Consciousness’ and therefore ‘mind’ are properties of the energy field.All primary entities are conscious (atoms, cells, humans).Corrected quote for accuracy.
3Consciousness defined UNDERLYING THESIS OF MY RESEARCH5. All group structures of primary entities (carbon atom, eukaryotic cell, homo sapiens) operate with a group energy field that reflects the consciousness of the primary entity. All these evolutionary primary entities share one thing in common – a propensity for bonding.6. Consciousness in physical form can be defined as “awareness with a purpose”.7. The purpose of all entities and their group structures is to attain, maintain or enhance internal stability and external equilibrium.8. All entities grow and develop in similar ways.Corrected quote for accuracy.
4UNDERLYING THESIS OF MY RESEARCH Evolution definedUNDERLYING THESIS OF MY RESEARCH9. Evolution has always primarily been about consciousness. In order grow and develop consciousness has taken on different physical forms at different scales of existence demonstrating increased levels of complexity and inclusiveness – resulting in the evolution of different planes of consciousness.10. There are three stages to the evolution of consciousness of primary entities on each plane consciousness:- becoming viable and independent- bonding to form group structures- cooperating to form a higher order entityCorrected quote for accuracy.

7Three Stages of Evolution As conditions of existence become more complex, both internally and externally, primary entities grow and develop in three stages. Each stage requires a shift to a higher level of consciousness which is more inclusive and more complex. The shift to a higher level of consciousness is necessary because it is impossible to solve significant problems of survival at the same levels of consciousness at which they were created.GROUP SUSTAINABILITYViable independent group structures learn how to cooperate with each other for mutual benefit and eventually create a higher order entityGROUP VIABILITYViable independent entities learn how to bond with other viable independent entities to form a cohesivegroup structureComplexityCorrected quote for accuracy.INDIVIDUAL VIABILITYIndividual entities learn how to become viable and independent in theirframework of existence

9The huge opportunity before us We have reached a point in history where we can now make the evolution of consciousness, conscious.We have the ability to measure individual and collective human consciousness by mapping values (Barrett Model) and underlying belief structures (Spiral Dynamics).
10The Big Picture – What is happening in the world The basic issue we are collectively facing is that problems of existence are global, but the mechanisms and structures we have for solving them are primarily national. Most nations are struggling to solve issues of internal stability.We cannot solve the problems we have created in the world with the same level of thinking that we created them.Ultimately, the problems we face can only be resolved by a transformation of consciousness – a radical shift in beliefs and values.
11The Big Picture – What is happening in the world The problems we are facing are in large part due to three causes:the increased scale of human developmentthe increased level of interconnectedness of people, andthe increased interdependency of nations and their economies.
12Issues Humanity is Currently Facing Scale issues: global warming, demand for energy, poverty, environmental and ecological sustainability.Interconnectedness issues: outbreaks of communicable diseases, religious intolerance, gender and ethnic discriminationInterdependency issues: vulnerability of financial markets, food security, demand for water
14The Earth Charter PREAMBLE We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that in the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace. Towards this end, it is imperative that we, the people of the Earth, declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of life, and to future generations.We urgently need a shared vision of basic values to provide an ethical foundation for the emerging world community . Therefore, together in hope we affirm the following interdependent principles for a sustainable way of life as a common standard by which the conduct of all individuals, organizations, businesses, governments, and transnational institutions is to be guided and assessed.
15The Earth Charter RESEPECT AND CARE FOR THE COMMUNITY OF LIFE Respect Earth and life in all its diversityCare for community of life with understanding, compassion and love.Build democratic societies that are just, participatory, sustainable, and peacefulSecure Earth’s Bounty and beauty for present and future generations
16The Earth Charter ECOLOGICAL INTEGRITY Protect and restore the integrity of Earth’s ecological systems, with special concerns for biological diversity and the natural processes that sustain lifePrevent harm as best method of environmental protection and when knowledge is limited, apply precautionary approachAdopt patterns of production, consumption, and reproduction that safeguard Earth’s regenerative capacities, human rights, and community well beingAdvance the study of ecological sustainability and promote the open exchange and wide application of the knowledge acquired
17The Earth Charter SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE Eradicate poverty as an ethical, social and environmental imperativeEnsure that economic activities and institutions at all levels promote human development in an equitable and sustainable mannerAffirm gender equality and equity as prerequisites to sustainable development and ensure universal access to education, health care and economic opportunityUphold the right of all, without discrimination, to a natural and social environment supportive of human dignity, bodily health, and spiritual well-being, with special attention to the rights of indigenous peoples and minorities
18The Earth Charter DEMOCRACY, NONVIOLENCE AND PEACE Strengthen democratic institutions at all levels, and provide transparency and accountability in governance, inclusive participation in decision making, and access to justiceIntegrate into formal education and life-long learning the knowledge, values, and skills needed for a sustainable way of lifeTreat all living things with respect and considerationPromote a culture of tolerance nonviolence and peace
19The Earth CharterRESEPECT AND CARE FOR THE COMMUNITYOF LIFEECOLOGICALINTEGRITYSOCIAL AND ECONOMIC JUSTICEDEMOCRACY, NONVIOLENCE AND PEACELife often involves tensions between important values. This can mean difficult choices. However, we must find ways to harmonize diversity with unity, the exercise of freedom with the common good, and short-term objectives with long-term goals [manage polarities]. Every individual, family, organization, and community has a vital role to play. The arts, sciences, religions, educational institutions, media, business, nongovernmental organizations, and governments are all called to offer creative leadership. The partnership of government, civil society, and business is essential for effective governance.

24What is missing from an integral perspective? EARTH CHARTERTalks about need for a shared vision of basic values to provide an ethical foundation for the emerging world community, but has no recommendations on how these will be manifested. Main focus is on community values and community behaviors.XXWilber’s four quadrantsUN MILLENNIUM GOALSUniquely focused on outcomes based on community behaviors.XXX
25The evolution of consciousness – the missing perspective Leadership – the evolution of personal consciousnessTo implement the principles of Earth Charter and the UN Millennium goals will require a new breed of political, business and NGO leaders – individuals who embrace full spectrum consciousness. Leadership development is the key issue – three stages: personal mastery, internal cohesion, external cohesion.1234The evolution of national and business consciousnessTo make the concept of humanity palpable, nations and businesses must work together along with civil society (NGOs)to create a sustainable future for humanity. The evolution of business and national consciousness are key issues.Wilber’s four quadrantsWhen leaders change their beliefs and values, their behaviors change. This influences the culture (beliefs and values) of the group, which in turn changes the behaviors of the group.
26The evolution of consciousness – the missing perspective Role of CTT
27How do we move forward?Goal: Create viable independent individuals everywhereIn order for the concept of humanity to become palpable, we need to achieve a critical mass of self-actualized individuals in every nation.In order for this to happen individuals need to transcend their personal, and their cultural programming.To do this we need to focus on the evolution of national consciousness and creating viable independent nations.
28How do we move forward?Goal: Create viable independent nationsNations cannot become viable and independent until they achieve internal stability and external equilibrium. Most conflicts are currently internal.Q. How do we create viable independent nations?By developing a strong cadre of self-actualized leaders focused on common good – focus on leadership developmentBy supporting leaders in bringing a critical mass of the population to self-actualization – focus on values
29How do we move forward?Q. How do we bring a critical mass of population to self- actualization?A. By supporting leaders in addressing deficiency issues:Problems of survival (level 1)– issues of poverty, corruption and health.Problems of discrimination and internal conflict (level 2) – issues of religious and ethnic diversity.Problems of education, institutional and legal frameworks, and enforcement laws (level 3).Problems of empowerment and equality (level 4).
30How do we move forward?How do we address issues of poverty?A. By creating an legal, financial and cultural environment * where business can flourish.By working with business leaders and their organizational cultures to develop successful small, medium and large-scale businesses.* In ‘Trust: The social virtues and the creation of prosperity’, Francis Fukuyama states unequivocally states that trust is the foundation of social capital, and shows how nations with high levels of social capital are more successful than nations with low levels of social capital.
31The Role of CTT 1. Working at the national level Carrying out a national values assessments to identify evolutionary imperatives – Example: Latvia, Bhutan.Carrying out a combined national and business values assessment – Examples: Denmark and Iceland2. Working at the individual business levelCarrying out culture, team and values assessments to develop successful small, medium and large businesses3. Working at the individual leader levelCarrying out individual and leadership values assessments to promote personal growth
32The Role of CTT 1. Working at the government level Carrying out culture and team values assessments for federal, state and local government departments, organizations and utilities2. Working with federal, state and municipal leadersCarrying out individual and leadership values assessments3. Working with local communities and NGOsCarrying out culture values assessments
33The Role of CTT Working with education departments Carrying out culture and team values assessments for federal, state and local government education departmentsWorking with individual schoolsCarrying out culture and team values assessments for schools3. Working with education leadersCarrying out individual and leadership values assessments
34What CTT does Gets to the core of what matters - VALUES ALIGNMENT Starts - TRANSFORMATIONAL CONVERSATIONSIdentifies - BARRIERS TO EVOLUTIONProvides guidance on - DIRECTION OF EVOLUTIONSupports leaders in their - PERSONAL GROWTHSupports groups in their - LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
35The way forwardContinue to focus on expansion and development of CTT in business, government and municipal agencies, and NGOs.Continue to develop models and tools for leadership development in business and the governance of all types of organisations.Continue to experiment and develop CTT models and tools for use in communities and nations.

55Emotional Intelligence is part of Personal Mastery Self-awareness — the ability to read one's emotions and recognize their impact while using gut feelings to guide decisions.Self-management — involves controlling one's emotions and impulses and adapting to changing circumstances.Social awareness — the ability to sense, understand, and react to other's emotions while comprehending social networks.Relationship management - the ability to inspire, influence, and develop others while managing conflict.
56Social Intelligence is a part of Internal Cohesion Social intelligence … “is less about mastering situations – or even mastering social skill sets – than about developing a genuine interest in, and talent for fostering positive feelings in the people whose cooperation and support you need – a set of interpersonal competencies …that inspire others to be effective.”Social intelligence and the biology of leadership.Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis, HBR September 2008
