The Unicist Talent Development System is a knowledge system based on the fact that the concepts people have, drive their adaptive actions. These concepts define the structure of the talents of an individual and allow considering such talents to define the roles in an organization and to empower them to foster their evolution towards superior levels of functionality. The Unicist Talent Development System includes an assessment system and the possibility of empowering talents using the Unicist Reflection Driven Education approach.
Business talents deal with the concepts individuals have to manage businesses and establish business relationships. This talent is driven by the negotiation capacity of individuals that is the framework for their business strategies. It is sustained by the relationship management capacity and its functionality depends on the performance management capacity. The time management establishes the basics to assume responsibilities in an organization in order to be synchronic with the needs of the business and its members.
The institutional talents define the concepts individuals have to make the institutional interests prevail over their personal interests. It requires understanding and sharing the values of an organization and the concept of the business and having the strategic intelligence that is needed to assume the responsibility of the roles established in order to better adapt to the environment. Institutional talents define the focus of the energy of an individual and drive her/his career in an organization.
Leadership talents define the positioning of an individual in an organization and define the evolution of the human capital of institutions. This talent depends on the concept of leadership that is functional to the business and type of activity and the personal roles that can be assumed. It includes the characteristics of the teamwork that needs to be developed and the development of the talents of collaborators. Leadership talents define the framework that empowers the effectiveness of organizations.
Personal development talents deal with the concepts individuals have to integrate a business and become part of the organization. It implies having a growth attitude that integrates institutional growth and personal growth. The development depends on the efficacy of individuals and is sustained by the personal strategy the participants have. It is based on a continuous improvement action that allows having a positive role in a business. Personal development defines the success of an individual’s career.
The potential of an individual is given by her/his capacity to emulate in mind those aspects where the individual intends to influence the environment. High potentials in business are those who are able to emulate business processes in mind. Human actions are driven by the concepts individuals have. Therefore, any action a person intends to do, requires having the concepts of what will be done. This requires emulating in mind the functionality of the “external adaptive environment”, the functionality of the actions that are intended to be done and the integration of both aspects.
Human intelligence works with the triadic structure of the intelligence that underlies nature. The adaption process of humans is sustained by the ontointelligence that drives the intentions of individuals, the reactive intelligence that drives the reactions of individuals to the stimuli of the environment and the active intelligence that drives the functionality of the actions necessary to adapt. Languages allow structuring the conscious reasoning process of individuals. The functionality of language, depending on the type of thought, sustains the human adaptation processes.
The Unicist Root Cause Management System is an application of the Unicist Business Strategy that allows managing adaptive environments and systems by emulating the intelligence of nature. It is a strategic approach to problem solving. This approach deals with the concepts and fundamentals that underlie business functions and processes to develop maximal strategies to develop growth and minimum strategies to ensure the functionality of the processes. This approach allows transforming business problems into structural solutions.
Destructive and non-destructive tests drive the reflection processes to find root causes. The research of root causes requires knowing why things happen. While the traditional 5 Whys applied in the field of hard technologies is based on univocal cause-effect relationships and is dysfunctional in adaptive environments, the Unicist 5 Why Method searches for analogical, empirical, logical, causal and conceptual answers to this question in adaptive environments. The unicist approach allows defining the foundations of business processes, which makes them reasonable, understandable and predictable. This method is complemented with the “Q” method that allows managing conflictive objectives.
The Unicist Corporate University works as a teaching hospital in business and is developed through "Business Residencies" and Micro-clinics. This is similar to "Teaching Hospitals" where physicians develop a specialty. The "Teaching Hospitals" in Business provide the learning processes for managers, leaders and high potential individuals who already have the necessary technical-analytical knowledge to deal with businesses. These residencies are solution building units that foster the learning of the participants through the applications that are sustained by counseling processes.

The Unicist Research Institute (TURI) is, since 1976, a private global decentralized research center specialized in complexity sciences that is focused on the research of the evolution of natural and artificial adaptive systems. It has an academic arm, the Unicist Corporate University, and a business arm, the Unicist Confederation.
It was the pioneer in complexity science research and became a global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. The unicist pragmatism, the structuralism based on unicist ontologies and the functionalism driven by concepts were developed at TURI to research the field of complex adaptive systems. More than 5,000 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 in the field of basic sciences, life sciences and individual, institutional and social evolution.
The main countries that originated these researches were: US, DE, UK, FR, JP, SE, CA, CH, IN, BR, AR, CAT, RU, CN, AU. TURI's Future Research Laboratory has completed the research of 70 countries' archetypes.
