DNA of Leadership: Breakthrough in the Research of Behavior

The discovery of the unicist ontological structure describes what can be defined as the genome (DNA) of leadership. The knowledge of its structure and the different categories of leaders allow defining the functionality of the leadership style of an individual and how s/he complements and supplements with others.

Leadership is based on the need to sustain one’s authority. But the participation of others is a condition of leadership. A leader is such because s/he is followed. Therefore, in terms of the unicist logic, participation is the active function of leadership and the energy conservation function is given by the power a leader has to impose her/his authority.

Shared objectives are the driver of leadership. Shared objectives precede the leader’s activity. Exceptions are new groups with no objectives. In this case, a creative leader is needed. Shared objectives are synthesized in the vision of a company or of a group.

Both the creative and the constructive leadership types are functional to develop maximal strategies. Maximal strategies requires democratic, authoritative and exemplarity driven leadership.

Both the authoritarian and the charismatic leadership types are functional to develop minimum strategies. Minimum strategies require a dualistic approach which includes authoritarian, charismatic and laissez faire leadership.

Authoritative paternalistic leadership is the catalyst for minimum strategies. When the catalyst is missing it works as an inhibitor of minimum strategies driving towards failure or inaction.

Marathoner or 100-meter sprinter in Business?

In Sports as well as in Business, competition challenges our capacity of reaction. That’s why focusing on choosing the right competitions for which we are best prepared is basic for our competitive advantage.

If you are a “long-distance runner” in business, this means profiting from your endurance capacity and complementing to solve your urgent conjunctural problems. On the other extreme, if you are “explosive” in your reactions, seizing your talent means taking advantage of your speed and strength in taking opportunities and complementing so that your actions are consistent in the long run. Seizing one’s talent implies identifying and training the strength and complementing one’s weakness. Then, as it’s been said by a famous athlete: “The more I train, the luckier I get”.

The way your muscles are contracted at the time of making an effort, using predominantly slow or fast fiber muscles, defines your predisposition to long-distance races (endurance) or short-distance races (speed). Even though everybody has both types of muscle fibers, recognizing the natural talent that is predominant is the key to seize that talent.

Which types of fibers do you predominantly use: slow twitch or fast twitch fibers?

Slow or Fast twitch fibers?

This distinction seems to influence how muscles respond to training and physical activity. Each fiber type is unique in its ability to contract in a certain way. A marathon runner uses predominantly slow switch fibers, while a 100-meter sprinter puts his fast twitch fibers to test in his competition.

Slow twitch fibers are more efficient at using oxygen to generate more fuel for continuous, extended muscle contraction over a long period of time. They fire more slowly than fast twitch fibers and can go for a long time before they fatigue.

Fast twitch fibers, on the other hand, are much better at generating short bursts of strength or speed than slow twitch fibers. But they fatigue more quickly. They generally produce the same amount of force per contraction as slow muscles, but they are able to fire more rapidly. That’s why having more fast twitch fibers can be an asset to a sprinter since he needs to quickly generate a lot of force.

Maximal and Minimum Strategies: Power and Endurance

Those who use predominantly fast muscle fibers in an activity tend to be good at managing maximal strategies. They are fast at reacting to the environment and therefore generally good at seizing opportunities. Through their explosive reactions they seek to break new “records” or establish new breakthroughs.

When they do not succeed in complementing with structural actions that guarantee their minimal strategy, then the results of their efforts are merely incidental.
Under equilibrium conditions, they take threats as opportunities.

On the other hand, those that predominantly use slow muscle fibers tend to be good at managing minimum strategies, since they have a high level of endurance (resistance to fatigue) that makes them tolerate prolonged efforts.

When they are constant, they are “doers” whose deeds work with the precision of a “swiss watch”. They are predictable and use the less energy they can to achieve their objectives. They are good for building projects whose aim is to last over time.

When they are not complemented or do not seek to cross new barriers, their good management of the minimum strategy is turned against them and takes them to be stagnated.

Taking advantage of what one has is the first step for developing a competitive advantage. Knowing the natural predisposition for a discipline is, in business and in sports, crucial at the time of assessing results. It becomes evident that those that profit from what they have are the ones that can reach a higher goal. Then we come back to the beginning: “The more I train, the luckier I get.”

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute is a pioneer in complexity science research. More than 4,000 ontological researches were developed since 1976 until July 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution, including the development of ontology based and business object driven solutions for businesses.


35th Anniversary of The Unicist Research Institute

June 1976 was the beginning of the research of evolution in the field of complexity science. It was focused on approaching the nature of reality which required an ontological approach to the basic research and an object driven approach in the field of application.

The research drove to the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, the unicist ontology, the unicist logic, the complexity science research methodology and the human ontointelligence.

This provided the basic knowledge to develop more than 3,500 applicative researches in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution that were finished until September 2010. The research work is still ongoing.

We would like to share with you this celebration giving you access to the book on:

Unicist Ethics: The Ethics of Doers

We consider it will allow you to expand your boundaries in work and businesses.

You can access the book at: http://www.unicist.org/deb_doers.php

This anniversary is a very special one, because it follows a turning point in our global expansion that took place during the last year.

Unicist Learning: Why adults inhibit their own learning?

Childhood lives within a complex world. From birth on, children enter a world where reality exceeds their reasoning capacity and they need to learn in order to survive and grow.

The way they do so is very simple:
a) They act
b) They somehow elaborate their actions
c) They act again based on their elaborations

This is the natural taxonomy to manage complex problems. Children follow these steps intuitively. Taxonomies are naturally respected by children. If you put skis on small children they just begin with “snow plowing” and not “slaloming”.

What happens with this intuitive way in grown up adults?

Educated adults do not enter a new complex problem based on experiencing it first. Societies, parents and the educational system taught them to approach reality beginning with a rational thinking process. This is functional to everyday operational activities, but is dysfunctional to learning how to manage unknown complex problems.
A complex problem must be approached with an “action – reflection – action” process, which is absolutely counterintuitive for ordinary adults.

Access a Unicist Clip:

Why is “action-reflection-action” counterintuitive?

In the adaptation process humans have to face four natural fears that inhibit intuition:

1) The fear of ridicule: A persistent, abnormal, and unwarranted fear of being ridiculed or ridicule. It is the fear that hinders the beginning of any different or new activity.
2) The fear of failure: Fear of failure is the fear of self-criticism or the fear of being criticized by others. It is the fear of failure that hurts far more than the failure itself. Actually, it is the fear of not being sure what will happen.
3) The fear or rejection: It is an outcome of low self-esteem. It makes you feel that everyone in this world is superior to you and they can reject and avoid you for some reason or other.
4) The fear of success: The fear of success is a very unique issue that arises when you are genuinely creating change and moving forward. One of the core fears that arise from change is that success will lead to loneliness.

These fears define the natural taxonomy of fear managing in human adaptive behavior.
Complex problem solving requires an action-reflection-action process. This implies the involvement in the problem as a participant. Without this involvement there is no possibility to apprehend the ontological structure of the complex problem.

Discovery of the unicist ontology of the Oedipus complex

This R&D e-book by Peter Belohlavek is a presentation of the obscure part of personal behavior and a solution for it.

The obscure part of individuals is very difficult to apprehend because one needs to be able to get in touch with one’s obscure part. It may provoke reaction, denial or rationalization. But it is extremely useful in the long run. Evolution implies: today better than yesterday.

Complexes are a “cancer” in the human mind. As a cancer, complexes destroy their host while they die with it. Individuals degrade when they are dominated by complexes. This can be objectively measured in the adaptation process of individuals.

Complexes remit when the individual has the courage, the will and the energy to assume a full responsibility for her/his life.

This discovery has significant consequences for individuals, institutions and cultures. It enters the most taboo aspects of human behavior.

It explains why a bright 3-year old kid becomes a 40 year-old mediocre and a 60-year old senile person. It also explains the opposite, when a person achieves wisdom.

As there is a homologous complex in the collective unconscious, it provides the groundings of why the gap between developed and developing countries is growing.

Unicist Talent Development is based on Logical Reasoning

Unicist talent development is based on expanding the capacity to develop integrative thinking. This implies dealing with the Unicist Logic.

An integrative approach fosters conscious behaviors and stimulates the evolution of individuals based on their capacities.

The Unicist Logic makes this integrative thinking reasonable, understandable and provable.

Maurice Blondel announced a century ago that some day a logical structure would be developed capable of integrating the preexisting logical models. That is the case of the Unicist Logic.

Unicist Standard Language for personal talent development

Individuals evolve based on their nature.The Unicist Standard provides the structure of the nature of individuals in order to influence the conscious evolution of individuals.

The Unicist Standard Language is basic to understand and deal with the ontology of personal evolution.

“Dealing with Human Adaptive Systems necessarily is driven by complexity. Adaptive systems are complex in themselves but dealing with human adaptive systems adds a new complex component which is the ambiguity implicit in human behavior.

The existence of conscious and non-conscious aspects of human behavior produces naturally the existence of an ambiguous environment.

The purpose of adaptive system management is to influence human adaptive systems using the object driven technologies included in the Unicist Standard.

The development of the Unicist Standard Language was necessary to provide a context in order to understand, communicate and influence the management of human adaptive systems.”
