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.

Value adding: the key for learning processes

Learning processes in adults require the existence of a real problem to be solved. When there is no real problem to be solved, the learning process has no substance and the “knowledge” cannot be stored in the long term memory because it is meaningless.

Learning processes are based on the need to increase the value added to the environment so as to gain a better adaptive position for an individual.

But a learning context is required before a learning process begins.

The maximal strategy of a learning process is given by the need of improvement. The existence of a driver and the real need for improvement provides the will the individual “uses” as a catalyst in order to face and solve the problems of his/her learning process.

Achieving the minimum strategy implies paying the prices to ensure learning. The price to be paid is that the individual needs to leave things aside in order to access the comprehension of a new approach.

Learning implies leaving things aside. If the problem can be solved using the preexisting knowledge there is no need for learning because the problem does not exist. Therefore it is implicit in a learning process for unsolved problems that the individual leaves aside the preexisting approach and enters the comprehension of the new approach without cutting it down to what s/he knew.
Adults only do so when they really need to solve a problem. Improvement is the active function and learning the energy conservation function.

Only people who need to improve will be able to learn. People who enter in a learning process without having a real need to improve in order to solve real problems just enter in self-fulfilling activities.

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.”

Learning to deal with Unified Fields in Business

When we talk about the ontogenesis of knowledge acquisition we mean the natural steps that need to be considered when learning or when a learning process for other is being designed.

Knowledge can only be acquired when individuals have made a conscious decision to learn something. Knowledge only exists when it is stored in the long term memory which requires being meaningful and useful.

While adapting to reality implies a high level of energy consumption, building parallel realities provides a feeling of comfort, making the individual feel in power of the situation in the short run.

The unified field needs to be approached following the natural steps to apprehend a specific reality and the possibilities the individual has.

Personal Counscious Evolution is the driver for Success

The Unicist Standard for Personal Conscious Evolution described by Peter Belohlavek defines the ontological structures and the taxonomies that can be influenced to foster the evolution of individuals. The US is integrated by the taxonomies to approach ontointelligence and the fundamentals of the unicist reflection capacity and of conflict management.
