||Transcultural competence and the ability to integrate seemingly opposing cultural values in the Middle East, North African Regions and Ukraine are the basic psychological skills for sustainable development and peace. Globally, many organizations are drastically reducing employees, levels of management which results in rapidly changing models of careers and organizational success and, consequently, in psychological laws of business communication. In this context the issue which is of vital importance for the global environmental change is:
The given paper reviews the innovation and competence in Psychology Management Education in Ukraine (Derkach, 1996–2003) and presents a new theoretical framework outlining cultural differences in organizational behavior and success formation in the Ukrainian and Middle East managers.
- How psychological theories and practice could be effectively applied to the process of managing and being managed?
- What way could psychological and methodological technologies optimize and support the process of a manager's creative thinking formation in terms of cross-cultural development and indigenization of psychology?
The paper hypothesizes that for partnerships to develop, linking individuals and culture between the representatives of different nations should provide positive interpersonal and intercultural relationships grounded on the interhemispheric basis of the capacity to process information (Derkach, 2001).
The investigation reports that the individual psychological profile of brain organization of a manager may be used as the indicator of differences in psycho-neurological organization and cognitive strategies choice in Management Psychology Education in the process of problem-solving, decision-making and communicating and which will be treated in greater details during the conference.
