Unicist Logical Approach


Personal Strategies: from heroic to conquering actions

Personal strategies begin with heroic actions to find a place in the world but achieve their maturity when conquering actions become possible to expand the boundaries of one’s activities.

Strategic ActionStrategic actions seek to influence the environment actively. The action principle is given by the maximal strategy that is based on the opportunities offered by the environment. The minimum strategy, depending solely on the influencer’s action, is its energy conservation principle.

There are four ontological segments to develop strategic actions: Heroic Strategy, Defensive Strategy, Dominant Strategy and Conquering Strategy.

Level 1 – Heroic Strategy

The heroic strategy is performed by those who develop strategies based on individual heroic actions.

They are basically subjectivists who consider that individual efforts and smartness can prevail over systematically planned actions.

Heroic strategies are based on the personal costs individuals or members of a group are willing to pay.

Such individuals confront problems as personal challenges.

Level 2 – Defensive Strategy

The Defensive Strategy is performed by those who master the situations in which competitors attack.

These individuals are extremely smart when it is necessary to create alternatives to weaken others’ arguments.

They are usually very good analysts and utopists. Their ideas prevail over action.

They use their opponent’s forces to attack the implicit weaknesses of their strengths.

Level 3 – Dominant Strategy

The dominant strategy is performed naturally by those who are secure strategists and feel the need of taking the opportunities of the environment.

They are extremely good at diagnosing, and are able to picture the unified field of a business strategy without considering their personal interest.

They are strict ethical managers.

They are never satisfied. They always feel hunger for new expansive actions.

Level 4 – Conquering Strategy

This strategy is developed by those whose personal driver is conquering new positions.

They are natural doers with a strong intuition to perceive reality and its needs.

Conquerors are smart organizers. They usually lead their conquering campaigns personally.

Innovations and the creation of new paradigms are their natural tools to conquer new fields.

Speed based strategies and an endless energy reservoir are their raw material to adapt to the environment.

Conclusion

Action-reflection-action is the natural process to upgrade the level of a strategy. It requires learning through the actions in the environment, making the necessary mistakes, but avoiding their repetition. Good luck…

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 logical approach to solve complex problems

The solution of complex business problems requires approaching their dynamic. To approach the dynamic of a complex problem it is needed to use a double dialectical logic that allows emulating it and solving it using the unicist logical approach.

The unicist logical approach is based on the definition of what is possible to be achieved based on the knowledge of its nature and the systemic knowledge to define its quantitative characteristics to make it happen.

The unicist approach uses plans A, B, C and D
to make things happen

Plan A
The use of plan A is based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic map of what has to be achieved and the use of the operational actions to achieve it.

Plan B
The use of plan B, in case of failure of plan A, is based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic map of the solution and the use of entropy inhibitors.

Plan C
The use of plan C, in case of failure of plan B, is based on the knowledge of the ontogenetic map of the solution, the use of the necessary entropy inhibitors and the use of a process catalyst.

Plan D
Plan D is the plan to abort the process in case of failure of plans A, B and C. It includes the opening of a new plan A in a homologous field.

Using Plans A, B, C and D makes project management professional, reliable, transparent and knowledge driven.

The Use of Gravitational Objects to Make Things Happen

Social gravitational objects are adaptive processes that have been organized as autonomous entities to provide an authoritative context to sustain specific actions.

Gravitational ObjectsThey define the role of the wide context that influences actions or objects and do not belong to the system they are influencing.

Examples of social gravitational objects are: religious commandments, constitutions of countries, cultures, institutions, works of artists, scientific works, etc.

On the one hand, gravitational objects need to foster freedom in order to be bearable. This implies that they need to open possibilities of actions for those who are being influenced. Gravitational objects that intend to force predefined behaviors are unbearable and generate opposition.

On the other hand, these gravitational objects have to provide a security framework for the actions that are being influenced. This framework provides a conceptual action guide to take advantage of the possibilities that are being fostered.

In order to work, structural actions need to be based on gravitational objects. Conjunctural actions can be done without them but leave no trace in the environment. Their consequences vanish as soon as the actions were finished.
