As human beings we have a well-organized system of ideas which helps us to understand what is going on in the world around us and inside (self-talk). It is a specific perceptual lens—a navigation system—that works for us in terms of how we communicate and feel comfortable with events and situations in life.
What happens when our navigation system is challenged? To understand (new) ideas and how we react in unfamiliar situations or when we experience disruptive events, we use our knowledge schemes, our templates to organize information and understand interactions with others. These schemes can be activated and modified every time we seek information, reflect, act, and interact with others based on our ability to communicate with others.
Why is it crucial for leaders and personal development? As human leaders we have to be aware of the collective system of ideas and how we communicate and feel comfortable with (disruptive) events in order to successfully transform and develop businesses/systems. In fact, learning how to master the communicating mind help human individuals to become more self-empowered and better relate, connect and interact with others including dealing with dysfunctional communication in systems.
