Reflection on Value Adding vs. Zero Sum strategies

This is Peter Belohlavek’s input to reflection on approaching reality with value adding or zero sum strategies organized by the Unicist Goodwill Network. It will give you a new vision on the nature of human adaptive behavior.

This is part of the cycle “Opening the Pandora Box of Social Evils”. Social chronic problems need to be cured and not only palliated. Paradoxically, opening the “box” of these problems allows curing them while closing it only palliates them and increases their destructive power.

Tweetinar: The Ontogenetic Map (DNA) of Leadership on 9.27.11

The unicist ontogenetic map of leadership allows understanding the type of leadership necessary to manage a specific activity in an existing environment.

On September 27 at 4:00 pm New York time there will be a Unicist Tweetinar on The Ontogenetic Map of Leadership (DNA) led by Diana Belohlavek.

Influential leaders are doers in their field. They may be artists, football players, businessmen / women, politicians or whatsoever. Their common characteristic is that leaders need to make things happen.

The Unicist Ontology of Leadership describes the ontogenetic map that defines the natural way an individual is able to exert leadership maximizing results and minimizing conflicts.

The Unicist Standard for leadership is based on establishing procedures to foster a leadership style that is functional to the goals that need to be achieved. Essentially, leadership implies the integration of authority, participation and power. This is self evident.

The questions that will be answered during the Unicist Tweetinar are:

  1. What is the benefit of managing the ontogenetic map of leadership?
  2. Why does the knowledge of the DNA of leadership help to build the authority of the leader?
  3. How can organizational consensus be managed?
  4. Does participation expand the power of leadership?
  5. What is a democratic leadership in hierarchical organizations?
  6. When is it necessary to exert a non-democratic leadership?
  7. What is the implication of reverted leadership?

We recommend watching the video on this subject in order to find your responses to these questions:

Complexity Science: Tweetinar on Unicist Diagnostics

Etymologically, diagnosis means discerning, distinguishing. The everyday use of the word also implies seeking for the causes of a problem.

From a conceptual point of view, diagnoses are made to forecast and to exert influence on a reality. The level of the groundings upon which diagnoses are based defines its level of accuracy.

Diagnoses necessarily include intuitive aspects when approaching new situations. The difference between diagnoses does not lie in the intuitive approach, but in the processing of the information that intuition offers.

We have identified five levels of diagnoses:

1)      Intuitive-analogical
2)      Descriptive
3)      Static
4)      Causal
5)      Functional

Intuitive-analogical diagnosis

The intuitive diagnosis approaches reality from the subjective perceptions of an individual. It does not use groundings to validate intuition, just intuitive analogies.

Descriptive diagnosis

The outcome of this diagnosis is a description of the visible physical aspects of a reality. This diagnosis can help to solve simple problems.

The static diagnosis

This diagnosis is based on the analysis of a reality. It is called static because in order to analyze something, we need to consider it as a fixed situation in time and circumstances. This diagnosis helps solving simple problems in areas which involve formal or rational components.

The causal diagnosis

The causal diagnosis is a systemic approach to reality. It is a systemic diagnosis that analyzes the functional

ity of a given reality. It sustains the solution of complex problems with low ambiguity levels.

The functional diagnosis

This diagnosis is based on the understanding of the functional concepts that underlay a given reality. The functional diagnosis is necessary for the solution of highly complex problems with ambiguous components.

The secure diagnosis

A diagnosis is “secure” when it includes all levels of analysis. Secure knowledge has been achieved when this condition has been fulfilled. Secure knowledge requires a high investment of energy. Therefore people often prefer to use reliable but not secure diagnoses, and control the evolution of a given reality in order to validate the accuracy of such diagnoses.

The questions that will be answered during the Unicist Tweetinar are:

  1. What are business diagnoses for?
  2. What are intuitive diagnoses for?
  3. What are functional diagnostics based on?
  4. What is mathematical validation of diagnoses for?
  5. What are conceptual validation model for?
  6. What is the 5 why methodology for?
  7. Which are the 5 why that need to be answered?

Wisdom is a pathway with many masters

Wisdom can be defined as the capacity of an individual to integrate idealism and realism with value adding actions.

The characteristic of individuals who achieved wisdom is that they had multiple masters that had an authoritative role in their lives. These roles are still in force and they still admire them.

Admiration and functional envy are the concepts that allow achieving wisdom. Individuals who admire others’ achievements and deeds have the opportunity to achieve wisdom, but only if they pursue the objective of adding value in an environment. Functional envy drives individuals to achieve goals.

Individuals with conflictive relations with authority can never achieve wisdom. They might be extremely erudite, extremely hard workers but they will never be able to integrate idealism and realism with a value adding attitude in their environment.

The apparent paradox of wisdom is the need of multiple masters. It is said that disciples are those learners who overcome their masters. But wisdom, defined as the space where an individual has been able to integrate idealism and realism with value adding actions, cannot be overcome.

Competing with a master in a field where s/he is wise is a demonstration of the prevalence of the need to gain over the need to add value. Multiple masters make wisdom accessible.

Erudition is not analogous to wisdom; it might be different or a fallacious “version” of wisdom. Wisdom implies action while erudition does not.

Achieving wisdom cannot be a goal for a wise person; wisdom is the consequence of the action of an individual but does not cause it. It is unwise to try to achieve wisdom.

That is why wisdom is a pathway with multiple masters. Masters are ordinary or extraordinary people who have achieved wisdom in some field. Look for them while you continue adding value.

To achieve it you need to abandon your modesty and expand your humbleness.  Wise people do not need to be right, just functional.

Unicist Tweetinar on Unicist Object driven Strategy

The human approach to strategy is defined as the conscious planning of human beings to influence the environment when such environment is uncertain, risky, complex or conflictive.

Influencing implies that the actions of a developed strategy will occur in the future.

The unicist strategic approach implies the building of a natural complementation with the “client” and a competitive strategy with “competitors”.

Strategy building implies a conscious behavior; therefore it implies intuitive but also emotional and rational conducts. Respecting taxonomies diminishes the risk of fallacies and paradoxical results. Pilot testing is necessary to secure the validity of a strategy.

The questions that will be answered during the Unicist Tweetinar are:

  1. What is the Unicist Strategy for?
  2. Why is it called Unicist Object driven Strategy?
  3. Why is it said that “Battles are won or lost before they are fought?
  4. Is the Unicist Strategic approach an action driver or an energy conservation function?
  5. What do you define as a maximal strategy, and what are they for?
  6. How do you define a minimum strategy and what is necessary to develop them?
  7. What is the catalyst of the minimum strategy and how does it work?

Metaphor: Unicist Corporate Universities

“The cost of a glass is in its solid;
its value is in its hollow.
Its cost has no value.
Its value has no cost.
But both of them are within the glass.”

“The cost of education is given by teaching;
its value is given by learning.
Teaching has no value.
Learning has no cost.
But both of them are within education.”

“The one who ignores is blind.
The one who ignores, but thinks he doesn’t,
is not only blind but deaf.
God and fools know everything,
But fools need to be right.”
