The scientific basis of our method
Re offers a solution that enables a redefinition of the problem and an improvement of
the management skills of the managers through Mentalization theory.
The theory focuses on developing the ability to reflect on the inner states of oneself and
the other, as a basis for developing and maintaining beneficial employment relationships,
and dealing with personal and interpersonal difficulties.
Mentalization stimulates the ability to think about the thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and
desires of yourself and the other, and to understand that these internal states may affect a person’s behavior.
In encounters between people from diverse backgrounds, both parties tend to attribute
to the other side intentions or thoughts close to those familiar to them from themselves
in similar situations and may fail to understand the other.
As a result, difficulties may arise, along with a personal experience of frustration, alienation, and a negative experience in working together.
This process is part of our structure at the neuro-biological level, and therefore cannot be changed through increased awareness or other instructional activity.
In order to help managers overcome the negative experience of failure in managing diverse employees, we must train them to apply the mentalization skill when facing any type of managerial difficulty.
Utilizing this skill consciously and deliberately will help managers to quickly come up with solutions to the difficulties they face, and to communicate with diverse employees in a more effective manner.
Our product offers various tools for applying the principles of mentalization to solve
managerial problems with employees. At the end of the day, both parties will be able to have a positive work experience, which will result in a positive and more effective working relationship.
