Legacy Live, iBIS and Legacy Pioneers are 3 companies that work closely together towards the same vision. Each has a different part to play in this vision. They all fall under the umbrella company called Legacy Group International.
Legacy Group Int. is be an umbrella organisation for a collection of services that facilitate the growth of people, communities and ideas such as to gather momentum and have a lasting impact on the world and on generations to come. These services empower leaders to carry their baton and to hand it over successfully when the time is right and do not seek control in any way. Every process and facilitation is infused with solid ‘Kingdom’ principles and values and not with political agenda.
LPC sees the business communities discarding poverty and orphan perspectives to embrace an interconnected entrepreneur culture; we see businesses working together to achieve greater levels of innovation and cross-generational impact. This is a culture shift driven by movement maker leaders who we champion, it’s a movement more than it is a business. Our mission is to, through our 3D Coaching™ approach, empower Business Leaders to actualize their leadership potential: in business (their ‘Dream’), their communities (being Movement Makers), and in their own lives. The coaching process is supported by a digital community networking platform (created by Legacy Live) that is designed to provide maximum value for clients’ time with us and life thereafter.
Legacy Pioneers operates on the individual level to develop leaders of leaders within societies and deal with individual, microsystem and mesosystem issues.
iBIS sees a world where accountants are no longer required in the ways they’re required today, where one product empowers business owners to manage compliance, staff, clients, leads, products, etc. This product will analyse data patterns for expert decision-making advice, a simple product powered by AI and fully integrated with the world around them. This is a world where everything that can be automated is, communications are simplified, and empowerment initiatives are based on real-world data. This is a world where businesses are validated in terms of best financial practices, legality, the people they pay, and the people who pay them.
iBIS provides the majority of the financial backing for larger Legacy Group International projects as well as a system for verification and integrity checking. It also empowers individual leaders to be more effective through technology.
The short-term vision of Legacy Live is to create networks of National entrepreneurs and associations (NGOs, NPOs, Student Associations, and CBOs) organised by community platforms such as to support healthy partnerships, standardisation and accreditation, high-leverage use of resources, client loyalty, legacy management, brand integrity, and fraud prevention. The long-term vision of Legacy Live is one of an interconnected digital world powered by communities empowering collaboration across false divides. This is a safe interconnected digital ecosystem where purpose and efficiency is empowered and each user designs what they hope to encounter in it. Our mission is to be community systems developers. We build a home for your target audience (community and membership websites), get them to live there (marketing), and capacitate you to lead them (creation, integration and automation of systems).
Legacy Live offers the technical foundation to empower Legacy Group International’s vision, specifically in terms of technology related to connecting individuals, and building and leading online communities.
Core values are the fundamental beliefs that guide a company’s actions and decisions. They provide a framework for behaviour and help to shape the company’s culture and identity with the view of replicating them in the broader society. They help to attract and retain employees who share the same values, as well as build trust and credibility with customers and other stakeholders. They help to create a positive work environment, consistency and brand image.
At Legacy our core values are Excellence, Integrity, Connection and Creativity. Let’s briefly unpack these into their most critical components before discussing how each can be applied to leading this business culture:
1) Excellence (an approach driven by love not fear)
2) Integrity (‘Yes’ means yes and ‘no’ means no)
3) Connection (Knowing others, being known, celebrating others, being celebrated)
4) Creativity (Unique, unrestrained expression of unique identity)
The following is the theoretical framework (Called the Unified Legacy Model) that governs how the visions will be achieved: An integrated model that combines elements from the 7 Pillars of Society, Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems, Diffusion of Innovation, Gestalt and Cognitive Dissonance. It is a useful approach for initiating positive change in societal value-based and belief-based cultural norms. In this model, the 7 Pillars of Society are the core values and beliefs that shape the culture of a society, while Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems are used to understand the various levels of influence on an individual’s values and beliefs (microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, macrosystem). The Diffusion of Innovation model is applied to understand how new ideas and practices related to these core values and beliefs might spread and be adopted within a society. Cognitive Dissonance theory is used to understand how individuals might resolve conflicts between their existing values and beliefs and new ideas or practices that are being introduced. This integrated model is used to identify key areas for intervention and key role players in order to initiate positive change in societal cultural norms, and to understand how best to promote the adoption of these changes within the society. For example, it could be used to identify influential individuals or groups who might be able to serve as agents of change, or to understand how to effectively communicate new ideas and practices in a way that resonates with the existing cultural norms of the society.
Cognitive dissonance theory proposes that individuals have a psychological drive to maintain consistency between their thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. When there is a conflict or inconsistency between these elements, it creates a feeling of discomfort or dissonance, which the individual will attempt to resolve in order to restore psychological balance.
In the context of initiating positive change in societal value-based and belief-based cultural norms, Cognitive Dissonance theory could be used to understand how individuals might respond to new ideas or practices that challenge their existing values and beliefs. For example, if an individual holds certain values or beliefs that are incompatible with a new idea or practice being introduced, they may experience dissonance as they try to reconcile these conflicting elements. In order to resolve this dissonance, the individual may choose to reject the new idea or practice, or they may modify their values or beliefs in order to be more consistent with it.
Understanding how individuals might respond to dissonance in this way can be useful for those trying to initiate positive change in societal cultural norms, as it can inform strategies for promoting the adoption of new ideas and practices. For example, if an individual is more likely to modify their values or beliefs in order to reduce dissonance, then it might be helpful to present new ideas or practices in a way that helps them see how these elements are consistent with their existing values and beliefs. On the other hand, if an individual is more likely to reject new ideas or practices that create dissonance, then it might be necessary to address and address their concerns or objections in order to overcome resistance to change.
In the context of initiating positive change in societal value-based and belief-based cultural norms, the diffusion of innovation model could be used to understand how new ideas and practices related to these values and beliefs might spread and be adopted within a society.
According to the diffusion of innovation model, the adoption of new ideas and practices by individuals and groups follows a predictable pattern over time. This pattern is characterized by a bell-shaped curve, with the early adopters of a new idea or practice being followed by a larger group of early majority adopters, then a late majority, and finally a group of laggards.
In this unified model, the diffusion of innovation model could be used to identify key influential individuals or groups who might be able to serve as agents of change and help promote the adoption of new ideas and practices related to societal values and beliefs. For example, early adopters of a new idea or practice may be more open to change and more influential in their social networks, and targeting these individuals with marketing or outreach efforts may be more effective in promoting the adoption of the new idea or practice.
The diffusion of innovation model could also be used to understand how new ideas and practices might be communicated or marketed in a way that is most likely to be effective in promoting their adoption. For example, understanding the characteristics of early adopters and the factors that influence their adoption decisions can help inform the development of marketing messages or strategies that are more likely to be successful in promoting the adoption of new ideas and practices.
According to the diffusion of innovation model, early adopters of new ideas and practices tend to have certain characteristics that make them more open to change and more likely to be the first to adopt new innovations. These characteristics include:
In terms of industries, early adopters may be more prevalent in industries that are characterized by rapid technological change or innovation, such as the tech industry, media, or marketing. However, early adopters can be found in any industry, as they tend to be open to change and willing to try new things.
In the context of initiating positive change in societal value-based and belief-based cultural norms, Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems model could be used to understand the various levels of influence on an individual’s values and beliefs.
According to this model, an individual’s development is shaped by the interactions between their biology and their environment, which includes multiple levels of influence, including:
In this unified model, the ecological systems model could be used to understand how these different levels of influence interact to shape an individual’s values and beliefs, and how these values and beliefs might change over time as the individual’s environment changes. This could inform strategies for initiating positive change in societal cultural norms, by identifying key points of intervention at different levels of influence and targeting efforts to promote change at these points. For example, if the goal is to promote more sustainable values and behaviors within a community, efforts might focus on engaging with individuals and organizations at the microsystem and mesosystem levels in order to facilitate change at the individual and group level, while also working to influence broader policy and cultural changes at the exosystem and macrosystem levels.
The 7 Pillars of Society Model referred to in the Unified Legacy Model is as follows:
It should be clear that each of these pillars play a pivotal role in developing a world that everyone can thrive in. They represent the values and principles that are important for the health and well-being of society. It is important for individuals, organizations, and governments to strive to embody and promote these values in order to build a strong and thriving society.
If a society’s beliefs and values were shaped by the 7 Pillars of Society model, it might look like the following:
Overall, a society shaped by these values and beliefs would likely be marked by a strong sense of community, fairness, and compassion, and would prioritize the well-being and flourishing of all its members.
If the education and media industries were shaped by the 7 Pillars of Society model, they might look like the following:
An additional lens through which this Unified Legacy Model should be viewed is through the lens of Gestalt theory. Gestalt theory is a psychological approach that emphasizes the importance of understanding the whole experience or system, rather than just its individual parts. In the context of initiating positive change in societal value-based and belief-based cultural norms, incorporating gestalt theory into this model might involve considering the interconnectedness and interdependence of the different pillars of society and the ecological systems that shape them.
For example, rather than viewing the 7 pillars of society as separate and distinct entities, gestalt theory would encourage us to consider how they interact and influence one another. This might involve considering the ways in which changes in one pillar (e.g., the economy) might impact the other pillars (e.g., the family, education, etc.), and how efforts to initiate change in one area might be more or less effective depending on the broader context in which they are occurring.
Gestalt theory might also encourage us to consider the ways in which individuals and groups within a society might be influenced by the patterns and structures of their environment, and how these patterns and structures might be changed in order to facilitate positive change. For example, rather than focusing solely on individual behavior change, this approach might encourage us to consider how to reorganize the social, economic, and political structures that shape individuals’ experiences in order to promote more sustainable and equitable outcomes.
Overall, integrating gestalt theory into this model could help to provide a more holistic and nuanced understanding of the factors that shape societal cultural norms and the most effective strategies for initiating positive change.
