  1. So we see that acmeology and psychology of management and other fields related to psychology, professional development, elaborate the various methods aimed at optimizing the mental stability of personnel management.

  4. Reflection here is understanding the mechanism of partners for their success and failures in communication, rethinking the stereotypes of his behavior, the causes and conditions of their actualization.
    Thanks to specially designed treatments, activates untapped intellectual, emotional and volitional capacity.
    Awareness of various spheres were not previously conscious creates conditions for the holistic rethinking of the “I” as the subject of creativity.
    Reflective-humanistic, cultivating a model of psychological and pedagogical influence has its own logic of deployment, and the first step and the main condition is to create a reflective environment conducive to the development of reflective abilities. The thinking is the presence of problem-conflict situations, and in activities – installation on cooperation, not on competition in the communication relationship, which is the availability of own human experience for the other and openness to experience another.

    The development of reflective culture to optimize mental stability should be based on a holistic psycho-acmeological concept of reflective practice, with its own design principles (scenarioname) and implementation (co-creation).

  6. We believe it is necessary to note that the most important point while optimizing mental stability is the development of reflective culture of personnel management.
    The essential component of reflective culture of civil servants is communicative, which implies the ability to work with people, to Express and protect their interests and to gain the confidence and credibility as a representative. By “will” of the state.
    No less important is the awareness of civil servants of the grounds of their assuming office, the principles that guide them. As show results of sociological researches, reducing the efficiency of the civil service contributes to the conflict status of professional identity of the absolute majority of civil servants. This is due to the conflicting motives of their government service and evaluations of the real role they have to play everyday. On the basis of this outstanding personality-motivational component of the reflective culture, presents psychological characteristics of the civil servant, his personal and professional qualities (values, motives, goals, attitudes, etc.).
    Because it is believed that the main result of the activities of the head-the adoption and implementation of managerial decisions as a product of intellectual activity of the subject of management. It must be allocated to subject-intellectual component that is directly associated with the content and specific activities of government officials and of the decisions made.
