The Power of Taking a Stand

The  FOUR YEARS.GO. initiative is a commitment to build the collective will for the transformation of how we live on this planet.

The most  powerful first step an individual can make is to take a stand for this transformation.

When we have taken a stand, the world shifts. When we have taken a stand new possibilities and opportunities show up, that weren’t evident before. We see the world with new eyes.

Taking a stand is always for something, never against or in opposition to. Positions create opposition and resistance. Taking a stand creates an opening, and an opening creates room for other people to be involved.

Taking a stand is something we do despite the circumstances. It is something we do from our hearts, from our passion. Against the odds. When we take a stand, we commit to something coming into being that would not happen without taking a stand.

Taking a stand allows for the impossible to become possible, and for the possible to become real. Without someone taking a stand, nothing important happens. It is an essential step in creating our new world.

From our stand, we take action; and from having taken a stand our actions have a power and effectiveness that they never would have without taking a stand. Our stands are nothing if we never take action, of course. And without a stand our actions lack power.


Multiplying Your Impact

Invite your friends, loved ones and colleagues to take a stand with you for a thriving, just and sustainable world to be the guiding principle of our time. And invite them to take the actions that are consistent with that commitment. When you invite others, it multiplies the difference you make. When everybody does this, our power grows exponentially, and the numbers grow very fast.

200 million people standing for creating a powerful, just and sustainable world by 2014 will be an awesome manifestation of collective will. The actions we  take collectively inside of our stands can deliver on the promise of our time. This is the promise of the FOUR YEARS.GO initiative.

Take your stand now, and invite your friends to do the same.

Praemia Group reorients to focus exclusively on Four Years.Go. leaders

Organization: Praemia Group

Recent environmental breakdowns coupled with economic upheaval have fueled a re-awakening desire among business leaders to be more environmentally and socially responsible. A desire to make a difference beyond shareholder gain and to tackle the fundamental challenges facing people and our planet. An ever-increasing army of conscious business leaders is declaring their commitment to lead their organizations towards positively impacting the world. Now is the time to stand with these leaders to accelerate the transformation of business for the good of all living things.
–Vince DiBianca, Co-Founder and Senior Partner
The Praemia Group® LLC

Praemia Group co-founder Vince DiBianca reports that his trip to Ecuador with Lynne Twist and the Pachamama Alliance was the final linchpin in his growing readiness to commit himself and the Praemia Group to the FourYears.Go. goal and timeline. “Business is the locomotive of society and its transformation is essential to our future,” DiBianca explains.

“For 35 years, my colleagues and I have been empowering leaders of some of the largest and most powerful organizations on earth to deliver on their mission,” he adds. “These people have helped produce empowering innovations in technology, health care, energy, education and communications. Unfortunately, some of these contributions to the human endeavor have been achieved at great cost to our level of profound happiness and well-being, the stability of our families, the health of our communities, the equities in society, and the sustainability of the planet itself. Focusing on short-term shareholder gain too often displaces an organization’s deeper purpose to serve its other critical stakeholders over the long term.”

Praemia consultants now coach and support business leaders to enable them to produce unprecedented results for their companies in ways that will directly affect the well being of people, the environment, society and the global economy in the next four years. Praemia® works exclusively with leaders who have committed themselves and their organizations to shaping our collective future towards a just, thriving and sustainable world within the next 4 years. They assert that the next four years will shape humanity’s future for the next 1,000. Transforming the culture of business will be critical to shaping this possibility.

According to DiBianca, the major disease in business is resignation and its antidote is possibility. “People often do not see how they can make a difference or have given up trying.” The Praemia Group subscribes to a set of principles that help business leaders come to terms with the reality of the challenges they face and the possibility of transformation. One of these principles is that  it is prudent, if not essential, to work and live as though the FourYears.Go. message is on point.

As DiBianca puts it, “The transformation of business is being demanded by the rest of the world.” More leaders are stepping forward. FourYears.Go. is providing an ideal context and an urgency that inspires business leaders to be in action.
