Three perspectives on which ICPA's international protocol teaching method based on behavioral science anthropology is effective

An executive of a major company also said, "I've never had a course where I could feel my changes so concretely!"

This wonderful comment has a secret. At ICPA, we do not teach only the form of international manners and protocols, but by providing guidance based on scientific evidence, brain science and psychology, we are sure to demonstrate effectiveness to our students. It is configured to have you.

Many protocol leaders teach methods without knowing it.

However, if you do that, you will end up with self-satisfaction for a while, and it will be difficult to become your own.In addition, it leads to a simple critique, such as ``This is correct, that person is wrong,'' which is a mistaken perception, and results in shallow content.

This time, I would like to talk about international protocols based on scientific evidence from the perspectives of people, organizations, and culture.

1. Human actions, thoughts, and emotions are founded on scientific grounds

All the courses taught by ICPA, such as international protocols, international etiquette, cross-cultural communication, languages, etc., focus mainly on "interpersonal relationships.""What to do with that relationship"the purposeand "to achieve it..."meansIt becomes.

These learningsUltimate "Anthropology"It means that it can be said that it is.

Humans are driven by their brains.Emotions, thoughts, and actions that we are not usually conscious of are all directed by the judgment of the brain.

And by those actions and thoughts, it will affect the thoughts and actions of the people around them, creating a state where "the brain affects the brain".

Therefore, first of all, you can understand the structure of your brain, and from there, you can find the purpose of taking classes by understanding your own emotions, behavioral tendencies, and thinking tendencies.

For example, if the purpose of meeting someone is the following two cases, the brain is used differently.

  • You need to be on top in business meetings: use psychological techniques to gain an edge over your opponent
  • You need to get closer to your partner on a private date: use techniques that make people feel closer to each other through psychological effects

Facial expressions, standing positions, handshake techniques, voices, clothing, body language, etc. must be completely different.

If you do these things without thinking, your purpose will be blurred, you will not know what you are doing, you will be confused, and there is a high chance that you will end up in failure.

Therefore, brain science and psychology are essential to study international protocols and other disciplines.

2. Protocol is an essential management tool for network formation

In modern times, the word “protocol” itself seems to be misunderstood.This is not a common international etiquette, nor is it something that only nobles should wear.

It serves as an important rope for connecting networks of people, and it is also a public rule used when large organizations interact with each other.

Internationally, protocol management is taken for granted in corporate training, but it is clear that there is a big difference in the results between companies that are capable of protocol management and those that are not.

For any organization that brings together people with different emotions, thoughts, actions, abilities, and life goals as described in the previous section, it is necessary to create a common sense of purpose among these people.

In order to permeate these people with a unified purpose, it is necessary not only to follow the rules, but also to perform psychological manipulation.

3. Facilitate cross-cultural communication with culture maps

For international protocols and cross-cultural communication, it is essential to first understand the culture map.It is a map of your own country/culture and other countries/people's cultures.

On the map, you will be able to understand the actions and thoughts that are necessary when moving from country to country, and you will also be able to understand the intentions of the rules decided based on it.

For example, if you think about why the order of precedence exists and why seniors are in that position, you can see that there is a hidden psychological reason.

Therefore, in every situation, you will understand "the position to be superior" and "the position to gain the trust of the other party".

By learning the protocol scientifically, you can use it in every situation.

ICPA training based on behavioral and learning sciences

The training focuses on the following three points.

Behavioral science is about making habits.

Humans are animals that are not good at changing habits.From that, all studies have proved that it is difficult to put it into practice if it does not become a habit even if it is learned.

Therefore, the ICPA aims to “make learning a habit.”

We are strengthening that.

  1. understand your current habits
  2. start a study habit

Specifically, for example, when you wake up in the morning, decide where and what to do, and take that action every day.For example, “Every day, at this place, at this time, I think about this thing.”

Learning science is to understand the step-up from visual/auditory → recognition → comprehension, and to understand the process of problem solving.

In fact, science tells us that the following ancient Roman quote is more than just a proverbial analogy.

“Without training, they lack knowledge.
Without knowledge, they lacked confidence.
Without confidence, they lacked victory.”

Julius Caesar

Also, the basis of learning is the balance between ion output and output.

The effect of outputting 1/3 of the input amount is "3 steps forward, 2 steps back".This means that output cannot be achieved without increasing the amount of input.That's what it means.

It is the same even if there is no knowledge without learning and discipline without purpose

If the meaning of the above quote is in Japanese,

"Without discipline there is no knowledge, without knowledge there is no confidence, without confidence there is no victory'

Gaius Julius Caesar

If you don't practice, you can't have a 7th term. Without knowledge, you can't build what it means.

Therefore, in ICPA,Knowledge/Habit/PracticeI'm doing a teaching method that can handle the XNUMX steps.

First things to do

So what should you do now?

The first step is to draw your own learning map.
