Personal-role objects building in adaptive environments

Personal roles work as objects in adaptive environments because they allow integrating groups knowing the functionality of each member which permits building synergy and establishing driving, inhibiting and entropy inhibiting functions.

Personal-Role Object

The acknowledgement of these roles also allows adding external functions to the group to provide catalyzing and gravitational functions to accelerate actions and ensure their consistency.

Only people who accept that their value is in the role they play in a work process are able to design object driven organizations.

People who just develop their work by executing tasks can use objects as part of their work process but cannot lead these processes.

A personal-role object is a composite object, integrated by multiple objects that sustain the role. It has to be considered that objects are adaptive systems that have a concept, an adding value active function and a quality assuring energy conservation function.

These multiple objects are integrated in four functions:

  1. Objects to provide transparency
  2. Objects to provide the necessary “dressing”
  3. Objects to demonstrate the deeds
  4. Objects to demonstrate the utility

A personal role identifies the functional identity that an individual has and that the environment expects s/he will fulfill.

The personal role becomes an object when an individual truly assumed the full responsibility of what is expected in an adaptive environment.

The personal-role of individuals considered as an object is what makes them part of an adaptive environment.

Over-adaptive environments do not accept the existence of roles.  They transform the functionality of an individual’s role into subjectivism and duties that are managed by the manipulation of illusions, fears and guilt.

Individuals have multiple roles depending on the environment in which they act. From this point of view an individual who is alone and has no contact with the external environment, has no personal role. The integration with the environment is what makes the personal roles exist as objects.

Every object has a level of energy that defines its critical mass. This energy is defined by the functional aesthetics of the role’s added value, the personal influence an individual has and the credibility of the value proposal.

Energy Saving in Business Management

Work implies producing a displacement of something in the real world. Every displacement generates a friction that needs to be managed.

When two people are doing something in a working environment and one of them produces work and the other is inactive, the friction produced is extremely destructive.

It produces a paradoxical situation because:

1) There is an extreme conflict if the friction is not eliminated.
2) If the parts are “lubricated”, there will be no friction but the person who is inactive will continue doing nothing.
3) The inactive person needs to judge what the other part is doing because that judgment sustains her/his self-esteem.
4) Finally, the one who does the work ends up being judged by the one who cannot do it and the conflict escalates to the maximal level.

Apparent movement is worse than inaction

Inaction appears often hidden behind apparent actions that are done without having assumed the responsibility for producing results. These apparent actions are based on fallacious decisions that produce negative results because they generate costs without adding value.

In this case they do not produce friction; they directly produce an “explosion” of the situation or an “implosion” of the actions.

If this conflict is not faced the natural trend towards minimum energy consumption (*) and inaction will prevail, eliminating both apparent actions and real actions.

To deal with this problem the nature of doers has to be understood in order to avoid their quitting. Access a free e-book on the Nature of Doers http://unicist.org/deb_doers.php

(*) In a closed system, with constant external parameters and entropy, the internal energy will decrease and approach a minimum value at equilibrium.

Unicist Family Business Strategies – The Unicist Standard

Business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are highly conditioned by the family archetype of each culture and the solution given to the roles that this fulfills. In the cultures where the affective predominates over the economic and social role, families that have businesses are highly inefficient and are always at risk as they don’t stabilize as institutions (independently of their members).

In cultures where the roles are balanced, business-driven family companies and family-driven companies are distinct fundamentally for their capacity and speed of growth. Business-driven family companies grow more rapidly.

In cultures where the predominant roles in the family are social insertion and the economic role, families with companies have a powerful influence in the environment. Although structurally they have less capacity to grow, they compensate this with the influence exerted in the environment. In markets with imperfect competition they build very powerful empires.

When we are dealing with business-driven family companies we can state that they are more effective than family-driven companies in the active roles, which are hunting, where one goes out to seek the animal in the market, and agriculture where intensive activities are developed.

An efficiently organized business-driven family company is more effective in passive hunting where it works from the basis of the influence of the family brand, and passive agriculture where extensive is what counts.

Therefore each business-driven family company must know what market niche to occupy where it can best achieve results.

We want to highlight that in marginal markets with highly imperfect competition, these concepts have no effects in reality, which is managed by non-company relationships, where the family-driven company has the weight of the family in that society.

Unicist Object Driven Leadership

The Unicist Standard is based on integrating the personal action of leaders with objects based on the institutionalization of their role.

Unicist Object Driven Leadership is a back to basics in leadership. The concept of leadership is defined by the integration of authority, participation and power. This is self-evident.

Objects sustain the power of leaders avoiding to exert such power. In this sense, objects work as:

1)      Drivers to make things happen

2)      Catalysts to accelerate action

3)      Inhibitors, working as a non-exerted dissuasion power

4)      Gravitational forces of leaders’ authority

You will be accessing a new world, which is at the same time a back to basics. It implies producing more results and being a natural leader in all those fields where you can integrate your personal action with the use of institutionalizing objects.

The unicist ontology of Innovation Blindness: The Talent killer

The development of unicist technologies and their implementation processes required the research of innovation blindness to develop strategies to avoid it.

Change blindness is a well known and experimented subject. The research was developed by different educational institutions: http://viscog.beckman.uiuc.edu/change/people.shtml

Innovation blindness is an unconscious response of individuals who do not perceive the proposed change, when the conditions to make use of it are not given.

The avoidance of energy consumption to introduce a new task in an individual’s brain is the functionality of innovation blindness.

Causes of innovation blindness

There are social and individual causes.

Social causes

1) When there are utopias implicit in the innovations that are out of reach for a group or society.
2) When the innovation does not respects the myths of a culture.
3) When the innovation disrespects the taboos of a culture.
4) When the innovation modifies the ethics of a culture.

Individual causes

1) When it modifies an individual’s habits.
2) When it modifies the ethics of an individual.
3) When the “functional recreation” by a user requires a level of knowledge the individual doesn’t have.
4) When the ego or the “business” of an individual is affected.
5) When an increase of responsibility of the user is required and s/he has no need to assume it.
6) When an increase of internal freedom of the individual is required.
7) When it stimulates guild or fear of the user.
