Psychological aspects of management
This paper deals with, on the one hand, an evolutionary approach to management and on the other hand to the evolutionary epistemology.The aim of the paper is to contribute to the establishment of the most salient general behavioural determinants of the evolutionary selection mechanism in management. The aim has been realized through answering the following underlying research questions: (1) Which determinants of the selection mechanism should be considered in the examination of that process?, (2) Which are the most salient general behavioural determinants of the selection mechanism? Deep investigation of the literature studies were used as the research method. Hence, the analysis is deductive. The paper is conceptual and contributes to the comprehension of the intra-organizational processes. The key findings are as follows: (1) The determinants of the selection mechanism should be considered in the following patterns of managerial activities: behavioural, cognitive, and emotional; (2) The behavioural regularities are the most common for all the selection replicators (habits, organizational routines, meta-routines) represented by particular interactors (individuals, groups, organizations, populations) including the fact that they may be constituted by and/or constitutive of cognitive regularities; (3) Amongst a set of behavioural determinants of the selection mechanism, generative creativity (proactivity) including both creative thought and proactive orientation in order to behave creatively and also intelligence plays a critical role; (4) Proactive orientation to behave creatively involves both a proactive personality as well as the proactive categories such as proactive work behaviour, proactive strategic behaviour, and proactive person-environment fit behaviour; (5) Intelligence is the hallmark enabling sufficiently the selection of particular selection replicators so as to intelligently adapt to the context by means of learning how to appropriately retain, accumulate, and transfer the encountered solutions.
