Unicist Behavioral Tools


Teamwork: Beware of Smart Alecks

Smart Alecks cannot add value. Maximal Strategies demand adding value to the environment to go beyond the existing boundaries of a business.

Smart Alecks are advantage takers that have an amoral behavior in order to profit from the environment. This kind of behavior is the natural response of stagnant survivors when managing businesses.

Stagnant survivors are naturally “smarties” in order to live from the environment.

They are driven by anti-intelligence and anti-intuition having no ethical rules in their behavior. They need to degrade the environment in order to justify their appropriation. When they have a high IQ, they become extremely dangerous because their critics are very smart, fallacious and well disguised.

The awareness of their actions is “zero” because they are basically driven by greed that drives them into fallacious behaviors.

One cannot deal with smart alecks because they assume no commitment with what they apparently agreed, and they always find the necessary justification for their non-fulfillment.

Their amoral behavior is sustained by accomplices in order to have the power to impose their rules. They manipulate others based on the generation of urgent needs that hinder the existence of alternative actions.

Logical Management Tools: Unicist Systemic Problem Solving

The goal of the unicist method to solve systemic problems is to establish a methodological framework to solve problems in which the complexity has been solved or does not exist.

ProfessionalismThe objective is to establish simple analytical steps that allow developing reliable conclusions of a problem where grounded cause-effect relationships are established.

This analytical method drives towards a “simplification” of the specific reality that is being researched. The deeper the analysis, the less reliable the applicability of particular solutions to the generic object.

A systemic problem solving methodology defines a pathway that begins with the definition of the possible goal and the description of reality that allows finding its functionality in order to use it to find a possible solution.

This requires minimizing the disintegration of reality into parts and simultaneously minimizing the unavoidable subjectivism that is generated by the uncertainty implicit in the problem solving process.

The Unicist Methodology is centrally focused on the analysis of facts and not on the opinions of the facts. Thus, it avoids a “double” interpretation of information, the generation of cross examinations and the consequent conflicts they produce.

The factual analysis as the core methodological aspect implies the existence of an integrative approach to reality, the consideration of adjacent facts and the need to find causative explanations that allow understanding the objective and subjective roots of the problems.

The concept of the USM

The Unicist Systemic Methodology is focused on the evaluation of facts independently from the explanations that are given on their causes.

As this methodology considers reality as a systemic problem, its concept is to find the cause-effect relationship of its variables. The objective of the analysis is to find the causes that generate the problem.

That is why the verbal information that is been collected is considered as an input for the analysis. The verbal information has a double functionality:

It describes the existing beliefs on reality, being their valid or fallacious.

It is a fact in itself, because of its relationship with the functional facts.

The USM begins by describing the facts or results that are being evaluated. To do so, it divides the unified field that is being scrutinized into the different facts that integrate it.

Metaphor: Snow White’s Stepmother Syndrome

Parallel realities are fed by the use of mirrors that reflect the projection individuals want to see.

These mirrors are sustained by a framework of fallacious myths and denials that provide the reflection effect that is sought for.

Fallacious myths provide the sensation of superiority that is self-fulfilling for people who suffer the Stepmother Syndrome. On the other hand, denials allow eliminating any information that endangers the perception of superiority.

These mirrors in fact do not exist. They are built by the projections of Snow White’s Stepmother adopting multiple shapes, in order to avoid being discovered, to provide a perception of “beauty”.

The paradox is that beautiful people might suffer this syndrome transforming their beauty into unbearable ugliness.

People suffering this syndrome have an endless need to be recognized for what they are not.

The cure of the syndrome is extremely simple: Use your neighbors’ eyes as a mirror. The syndrome simply vanishes.

Extreme individualism: a side effect of zero sum economy

Extreme individualists are individuals who seek for maximizing their benefits, have the necessary justifications to do so and need to exert power to achieve their purpose. They behave as “stagnant survivors” whose actions are a consequence of a personal attitude or the influence of the standards of an environment.

“The attitude of individuals is defined by the concept they have of what they are doing, the true intentions of their attitudes is defined by their ethics.
Extreme individualism in politics, economy and business is the consequence of zero sum environments and simultaneously generates them.
It produces a vicious circle that is paid with growth and the wellbeing of future generations.”

Excerpt from the book “Zero Sum vs. Value Adding Economy –
Opening the Pandora Box of Social Evils” by Peter Belohlavek

Extreme individualism is sustained by the human complexes triggered by fallacious perceptions and decisions. That is why extreme individualists cannot listen to what is different to their beliefs and needs. The open boundaries implicit in the adaptive aspects of businesses, represent a threat to their power exertion and the objective of maximizing their benefits.

Extreme individualism drives towards an over-adaptive behavior which implies that individuals, in order to avoid the responsibility of facing an adaptive process, deal with reality by submitting, opposing or dominating it. This is the essential behavior of extreme individualists.

They are harsh competitors who cannot deal with cooperation and consider that all those who cooperate are weak and should be disregarded. They need to destroy any technology that allows dealing with the adaptive aspects of businesses.

They are outsiders everywhere. That is why they can only deal with simple problems that allow an external observation to be solved. Their approach to them is subjective, intuitive and empiric.

They do not work with people; they use them for specific purposes. They manage naturally an authoritarian and/or manipulative approach to make this possible.

Stagnant survivors are idols for survivors who consider their capacity of appropriating value as a goal to be achieved to abandon the surviving role. That is why they are surrounded by them.

You do not have to worry about identifying them. They will identify you.

The perception of the Unified Field of Adaptive Systems

Businesses are a paradigmatic Human Complex Adaptive System that needs to be managed as a Unified Field. This is the field of complexity sciences.

Perceiving the unified field requires observing the active function, perceiving the energy conservation function, intuiting the implicit purpose and finally validating through destructive and non destructive pilot tests.

Every reality, considered as an adaptive system from a functional point of view, has a unique essential structure.

 

The unicist approach deals with reality considered as a unified field. This unified field is defined by the extrinsic and intrinsic concepts that have been discovered.

These unicist concepts are the unicist ontology that defines and regulates the nature of the entity that is being dealt with. This unified field is defined by a credibility zone when we deal with extrinsic concepts and by a functionality zone when dealing with intrinsic concepts.

The credibility or functionality zone behaves like a “micro-cosmos”.

Every being can be described by the three principles and functions that define it. It has a purpose, an action principle and an energy conservation principle. These three elements are integrated in its oneness considering a specific functionality in the environment.

Unicist Confederation: the Research Spin-off growth model

This growth stage that began in June implies the expansion of the activity of the Unicist Confederation based on “Research & Developments Spin-offs”.

This model requires the building of specialized business units within existing organizations who invest in the business to deal with some of the technologies or business objects developed at The Unicist Research Institute.

This spin-off model is focused on the use of technologies and objects that solve problems of the adaptive aspects of businesses.

Basically, the fields of specialization are defined by the Unicist Business Objects developed. It includes, in some cases, the development of Business Diagnoses and Strategies in the markets in which the ontological knowledge is available.

Unicist Ontological and Object Driven Business Organization

The Unicist Object Driven Organization described by Peter Belohlavek is a breakthrough that emulates the organization of nature. It integrates business objects into the business processes to increase their effectiveness. The organization by objects allows on one hand the saving of energy and, on the other hand, it provides the necessary structure to be able to integrate efficacy with efficiency increasing notoriously the results obtained.

Possibilities for the growth of small businesses

All businesses have, depending on their positioning, natural fallacious myths they believe in. These fallacious myths cover weaknesses companies have but are unable to deal with.

That is why chronic diseases of institutions have to be considered as characteristics because they are protected by the fallacious myths they have developed. The universal fallacious myths of small companies are the “justifications”. All what they do is justified because they are what they are.

“Small is beautiful” has been a motto used to justify the incapacity for growth. The size has nothing to do with the revenue. What defines if it is a small company is its critical mass. There can be a leader in a niche market that, having low revenue measured in absolute terms, is not small. Small implies assuming no responsibility in a market.

Small is a business attitude. The justification to avoid growth can be found in the following fable:

A hound dog found a bone and held it tightly in his mouth. He growled and scowled at anyone who attempted to take it away. Off into the woods he went to bury his prize.
When he came to a stream, he trotted over the footbridge and happened to glance into the water. He saw his own reflection. Thinking it was another dog with a bigger bone, he growled and scowled at it. The reflection growled and scowled back.
“I’ll get THAT bone too,” thought the greedy dog, and he snapped his sharp teeth at the image in the water.
Alas, his own big bone fell with a splash, out of sight, the moment he opened his mouth to bite!

But why did the dog made the wrong decision?
Because instead of looking for bones in the market he was viewing his own illusion in the mirror.

Small companies’ growth implies a big change which means leaving things behind, investing to build a critical mass, and then collecting the growth.

Victoria’s Secret and Mc Donald’s are stories that demonstrate that businesses might be intrinsically expansive but the attitude of the owners is what defines if there is a possibility for growth when they are small.

Small businesses disappear naturally in crises or with their founders. They grow when they begin to fight for the bones that are “unavailable” in the market. The man in the mirror kills businesses.

Learning the use of unicist ontology based business objects

The use of Unicist Business Objects, e.g. a Market Lab, doesn’t require managing ontological approaches but understanding them.

Unicist Business Objects are part of the intellectual capital of companies.

Access Diana Belohlavek’s  book on Intellectual Capital at:
http://www.goodwillnetwork.net/deb_ic.shtml

An individual needs to be able to manage the business processes in order to integrate business objects. This requires having the concept of the process, having the operational know how and understanding the process which means having the know why.

Business Objects do not substitute the individual’s responsibility for results; they provide a structured solution that makes her/his activity easier and more profitable. In other fields this is self-evident: an autopilot doesn’t replace a human activity, it sustains the work of a pilot.

This is not the case of robots, for example in a welding line, where human activity is substituted by robots. Unicist Business Objects are like autopilots and not like robots.

The learning of the use of business objects requires having grasped their concept, accessing their “know why” and finally managing their “know how” to be able to replace them in the case their range of operation is exceeded.

The use of business catalysts in commercial processes

Unicist commercial catalysts influence the use of inner freedom. The installation of catalysts in commercial processes only works if the catalysts have a superior ethical approach that allows buyers exerting a higher level of decision freedom.

Mental processes are catalyzed by questions. But there is no catalysis if the questions posed generate answers. Catalysis is only produced when questions are responded with other questions.

This implies that the catalysts of mental process are the questions that are asked by the individual her/himself and not the one posed by others.

Only individuals who have inner freedom are able to ask themselves questions without feeling pushed. The proactive questions individuals have are the demonstration of inner freedom in action.

Affirmations, posed as fuzzy facts allow generating questions in the mind of the recipient of a communication. That is why fuzzy affirmations, with a superior ethical content, are the natural catalysts of commercial processes.

Only individuals focused on the true customer’s needs are able to use commercial catalysts.
