CORE is 4Sight's improvement/change process as is embodied in the CORE flowchart. It is an individual customization of the main approach to changing the way people think; cognitive behavior therapy or CBT. It is the step-by-step plan you can use to integrate the 4Sight Model knowledge into your daily routine to reduce irrational thought, resolve conflict and effect behavioral change.
This video is a 1.0 version of the walkthrough of the CORE flowchart and is 5 1/2 minutes long.
We should have an emotions encyclopedia and it should be used in school curriculum starting in the first grade. We don't. And as a result, we are all left to mostly fend for ourselves. That's not good because that means we will all develop our own system and definitions, further fostering the problem that emotional differences cause in the first place; conflict. We aim to change that.
The CORE flowchart itself is the thought process one would follow to resolve conflict. After all, that is the end game for all of us. Problems are going to arise, but those chronic issues that hold us back - how we are defnining conflict - are avoidable. And the reason we don't resolve that is because of our emotions. And the reason for that is because we don't understand emotions well or know how to manage them. We created the Model and Process to give you the knowledge and strategy you need to reduce conflict. And when you reduce that conflict - and in some cases become aware of the fact that it is actually happening - everything changes. Hence, the flowchart. Let's get into that briefly.
Commit is the fundamental pledge we are all supposed to begin with; to choose to be accountable to each other. Not everyone does that. We give some reasoning as to why that should be but, ultimately, everyone is left to make that choice for themself and we must respond accordingly. Commit also includes some basic definitions of what acceptable behavior should be.
Once you Commit you must then Observe which includes two key traits that enable everything else. Identifying triggers and regulating emotions. The short explanation of those terms is that they allow us to recognize when we are experiencing conflict and, when that happens, engage in constructive behavior that allows us to resolve that conflict.
Reflect is where we incorporate the 4Sight Model and use it to figure out what the source of that conflict is. If we are alone, of course, that means the conflict is internal. If someone else is present, however, it may mean that they are in conflict, we are, or we both are. Regardless, if it is an irrational (internal) conflict, we must take care of that on our own and reframe.
Finally, in Edit, we follow through on the two different valid emotion scenarios, and this is a very important step. The reason is that there are lots of times when we experience negative emotions and we get stuck on the emotion. Meaning, further action is impeded. And, as you can presume, if we fail to resolve a conflict then that conflict will likely reoccur. And when that happens, some happiness and independence will be sacrificed.
