Discovery of the Ontogenetic Structure of Leadership

The unicist ontogenetic structure of leadership describes the nature of leadership in order to be able to use the adequate leadership for any situation. Understanding the nature of leadership is basic to find the natural place to develop one’s activities. It also helps to understand how to influence people and how to respond to the influence of others.

The basics of leadership

LeadershipLeadership is based on the need to sustain one’s authority. 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. But this is a sort of paradox.

The energy conservation function is given by the power the individual “does not use”. If the power is used it consumes energy and, in fact, a double amount of energy, because:

  • To impose something there is a need to exert power and consume energy.
  • When power is exerted, authority is being lost, because it means that the authority of the individual has not been accepted. And in this case, an additional amount of energy must be invested to reconstruct the value of the authoritative role.

Participation poses another paradoxical dilemma:

  • When the authority of the leader is extreme, for example a religious leader, the participation is not possible.
  • When the participation is extreme, there is no possibility to accept an authoritative role.

The Unicist Innovations in Management

The introduction of Unicist Object Driven Management simplified the role of managers. The integration of hardware and software to fulfill the objectives of peopleware made businesses more predictable.

The use of objects expanded the boundaries of managers’ activity and allowed dealing with the adaptive aspects of businesses to foster their expansion. The following description will give the basics of the innovation.

The activities of the Unicist Confederation are expanding based on the introduction of the unicist ontology and business objects driven technologies.

The Object Driven Organization of the adaptive aspects of businesses is the technology included in all the “solutions” for business optimization.

The Confederation itself also uses business objects for its growth. These objects ensure the critical mass of the solutions it provides to the market. Business solutions require the use of driving, catalyzing and gravitational business objects.

1) The business objects are the drivers of the activity providing the solutions that generate significant energy savings and optimization of results to their users.

2) The unicist approach, including diagnoses, strategies and architectures of the solutions is the catalyst of the Confederation’s proposals.

3) The emulation of nature in business is the gravitational object that sustains the activities of the Confederation.

This approach segments the market. Basically, it can be said that the object driven approach is necessary for business expansion and convenient for business administration.

Approaching fundamentals to deal with adaptive systems

Fundamentals define the nature of reality. The unicist technology for diagnostics approaches problems based on their nature.

Problems turn complex when results must be achieved, and require a high accuracy of the diagnoses, prognoses and action plans to solve them. Unicist technologies for diagnostics were developed to ensure results.

The unicist approach considers any specific reality, on which influence intends to be exerted, as a unified field. This is the origin of the name unicist.

Diagnosing implies describing the functionality of a reality. And this description includes the internal cause-effect relations, whether they are univocal or bi-univocal.

From that point on, a prognosis of the natural evolution of that reality has to be developed and then an action plan to influence such reality is included in the final diagnosis. Unicist diagnoses include: descriptions, prognoses and action plans.

The natural segments of continuous improvement are:

1) Repair
2) Update
3) Upgrade
4) Renewal

Maximal strategies are driven by innovation. They are put into action by the implementation of big changes that go beyond the existing boundaries of the present operation and are sustained by the external need represented by the client centered management.

Minimum strategies are driven by quality assurance, put into action by the development and implementation of medium changes and sustained by the personalized organization that ensures an effective participative action model.

Using the Unicist Standard to learn from Unilever

Unicist Object Driven Leadership is a back to basics. The concept of leadership is defined by the integration of Authority, Participation and Power. This is self-evident. But the question is: Which are the Fundamentals of Leadership?

In the following lines you will find an answer to the question posed in this blog last week:  http://unicist.net/management/benchmarking-unilever-unicist-object-driven-leadership/

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

Using Unicist Object Driven Leadership 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 basics of leadership

Leadership is based on the need to sustain one’s authority. 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.

Participation poses another paradoxical dilemma:

1) When the authority of the leader is extreme, for example a religious leader, the participation is not possible.

2) When the participation is extreme, there is no possibility to accept an authoritative role.

This solution is contraindicated for absolutist, subjectivist, fundamentalist and anarchic leaders.

Use strategic management to improve your organization

Unicist object driven management is an upgrade in management because it integrates a unicist strategic approach to businesses with the operational solution. Access the technology to design business objects that make strategies work.

The Unicist Strategy Programs at The Unicist Corporate University are analogous to medical residencies.

Dealing with business strategies, diagnoses, scenarios and action plans in business cannot be solved with case studies.

Case studies are autopsies, that are necessary to learn the “language”, but only “live” cases can be the basis for approaching strategies, diagnostics and scenario building. Unicist technologies manage reality based on its nature.

Therefore, only “live patients” and real cases with personal involvement make the learning of unicist object driven technologies possible.

Managing businesses dealing with their fundamentals

Managing fundamentals fosters action; managing technical-analytical knowledge makes control possible. This is the Unicist Standard.

To grow it is necessary to start with the actions and follow with the control. Control is an energy conservation function.

When control prevails over action an organization is in involution.
