Abstract

The term "American Dream" evokes ideas such as improved personal lifestyles and freedoms to achieve our human potential. In the dominant United States culture, great emphasis is placed on the freedom to make personal decisions, an assumption of individual responsibility, and the belief that people prove their worth through achievement at work. Success and achievement both on a personal level and, as it relates to business matters, includes wealth maximization achieved through transformative and emotionally intelligent leadership. A recent study of a Native American perspective regarding leadership revealed several points that do not fit with this concept of the American Dream. In this study, group identity was contrasted to the US concept of individual identity; success was identified using different variables; adverse reactions to individual business ownership were noted, and problems with temporal components were unveiled. This paper captures and elaborates on those topics and other points of view based on a Native American tribal perspective.
