The HumanGuide Concepts for Companies/Organizations

companyuvThe picture is from Sao Paulo, Brazil, which is one of the world's mega towns. It increases with more and more people in the cities, and the world is more and more a global village via internet, which implies that competition and speed of change only increases. Therefore it is crucial for companies and organizations to be alert in their business by e.g. hiring, developing and keeping good employees plus developing and nurturing both their trademark and culture.

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight basic dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you only “be” one of 16 types. The popular DISC-model (and similar) has only four basic dimensions. And the Five factor model has only five basic dimensions.

Why some entrepreneurs fail and other are successful?

That is a very relevant question. Every company starts with one or many entrepreneurs (companions). So did Apple Inc, which struggled in many years of the competition from Microsoft, but at last they figured out a winning recipe – so far… No one knows about the future. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, stated: – The first ten you hire for a startup determines, if it will be a failure or a success!

This means that every hiring is crucial – especially the first ones. Every time you make a miss in your hiring, then you get a problem generator!

Jim Collins and a team made research during five years in order to identify companies in USA, which had been best in their line of business at least during 15 years. They found 11 companies. The success was explained mostly from two “recipes”. One was to focus on where they were best – only there! The other was so-called “Level5 Leadership”. This leadership you can learn more about in our learning paper with 12 pages. There you  also about different entrepreneurs... Learning paper means an easy-to-read white paper;-)

You can have great support of the HumanGuide concepts in your recruitment and staffing. There are many unique tools in order to

  • get a good personality demand specification for the job
  • use a smart method to check references
  • compare candidates with typical top performers of the job (if such jobs exist)
  • have a good onboarding of the newly hired employees
  • start quickly with coaching for the newly hired employees

The company or organization can also use the HumanGuide concepts in order to have a simple way to describe their culture, which gives a practical communication platform for developing and nurturing the culture.

One of our tools for recruitment, onboarding, team development, etc is HumanGuide Cards, i.e. the personality test in deck of cards format combined with a supportive web app cards.humanguide.se. A fact sheet – click here.

Crucial questions to answer in order to have a well-functioning business are... 

How can a toolbox based on personality knowledge support development of companies and organisations? In many ways e.g. concerning INDIVIDUALS

  • How to recruit well including that candidates fit to your trademark and culture including a good way for onboarding hired people?
  • How to analyse what characterizes people, who are successful in their jobs – especially volume jobs, so you can recruit well? 
  • How to analyse your personnel’s capacity and development need?
  • How to handle personal development?
  • How to change your personnel turnover (decrease or increase)?
  • How to analyse why people quit?

e.g. concerning LEADERS

  • How to support and develop our leaders?
  • How to identify potential leaders?
  • how to figure out what characterizes leaders, who are successful in their jobs – especially volume roles, so you have easier to identify such leaders?

e.g. concerning TEAMS

  • How to support and develop teams?
  • How to staff and start new teams?
  • How to figure out what characterizes team, who are successful in their mission – especially with volume missions, so you have easier to staffing good teams?
  • How to figure out what type of team are suitable for a specific mission?

e.g. concerning TRADEMARK and CULTURE

  • How to describe our trademark and culture in a concise and practical way?
  • How to develop and care our trademark and culture?

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you "be" one of 16 types. The popular DISC model (and similar) has only four dimensions. And the Five Factor Model has only five basic dimensions.

The HumanGuide Concepts for Individuals


festivaler 016SThe picture gives an example how many people there are on the earth, i.e. it is no drawback to be good at cooperating with other people. Likewise it is smart to find your way in life, where it is to your advantage, e.g. a suitable job. 

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight basic dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you only “be” one of 16 types. The popular DISC-model (and similar) has only four basic dimensions. And the Five factor model has only five basic dimensions...

Are you happy with your life or can it be improved? Is your PassionIndex high?

Many people agree that they probably can be happy more often, but how to fix that? At first you need to make good decisions concerning these important questions in your life

  • what job area or job will you like very much?
  • in what company or organisation plus geographic area will I get a happy life?
  • what life partner could give me a happy life?

The crucial knowledge here is self-knowledge. If you know your most important drives in your personality, then you know where you have strong motivation to do certain tasks and why you dislike others. By focusing on your strengths, then you can be a talent in that area, because no one isn’t born with talent – except for biological components e.g. being tall and similar. Therefore it is important that you get a clear self-knowledge about your drives (=strengths). As early as possible, so you take good life decisions already when you are young. It is a pity that most young people don’t understand that, so they make instead their choices copying friends, parents, etc or e.g. go for jobs where you get a high wage or status – but they fit them bad. The parents have normally more experience and then better insights, but they have a lack of good tools to help their children to make good life decisions. Sometimes their relation isn’t so good for being a good coach…

I have here many strong own experiences from my job e.g. one teacher used the HumanGuide test to set up good teams, when the students should train to run a business. Before she used the test the students set up “cloned” teams – all team members were similar, so there wasn’t many dynamics in the team. Instead they gain more on security (very few surprises by “copies”) and easy to cooperate, because it was very easy to understand the other members behaviours.

When the teacher gave the students the test results in the classroom,  then it became chaotic. The teacher lost the control, so in her opinion it was her worst situation as a teacher... However, the students’ opinion was that this day in school was the best in my life! Why? They could understand themselves much better. Moreover, they also understood their classmates better. They got a clear and easy-to-use “quality language”.

Another similar experience was when I met a user of the HumanGuide concepts in Brazil. She had read my book Let the Personality Bloom. I asked then for feedback...

  • I love the book, she said.
  • Why? I wondered.
  • My son should apply for an MBA education and should write about himself. He said: I can’t do that. Then I gave him the book. After some time he said to me: The book gave me very good insights about myself, so now I have no problems to describe who I am. Very useful insights!

What happens when someone has a lack of self-knowledge? One example was a nuclear engineer. She studied many years to get such a job, but after a while she realised that she disliked the job. After she had done the HumanGuide test, then she said

  • I have done many personality tests. This test was the first that explained to me, why I disliked my job

The main reason was that she had a high value on the dimension Imagination (being creative) in the test. That strength she couldn’t use so much in her job. Now her life is much better – as an entrepreneur, where her creativity is needed and can flourish.

How can increased self-knowledge improve your life? In many ways e.g.

  • to choose a job, which gives you a high passionindex between your personality and your job (tasks) or your culture – they fit well together. This also includes to choose a relevant education…
  • to make it easier to be successful, when you search for a new job
  • to understand when you exaggerate your strongest strength and how you can handle that
  • to understand better what methods suit best for your personality and why

or when dealing with other people, then you can

  • improve your cooperation with them
  • improve your working in teams
  • better understand what characterizes people, who is complementary to you
  • better choose a well suitable coach for you
  • better figure out what type of company/organisation or country culture, which suits you best

Personal development with support of the HumanGuide concepts can be useful for everyone – both leaders and employees – and students... All concepts start with doing a HumanGuide PersonProfile via the internet, which takes about 15 minutes. To that you can add to fine-tune the test result via an authorized "humanguide”, which takes about 45 min depending on the objective and conditions. Mostly this is done in the start of a coaching program, i.e. it leads to a more effective coaching – more "accurate" and more accomplished in a shorter time. There are many versions of coaching programs depending on the objectives and conditions. If you are interested, then contact an authorized ”humanguide” or us at Humankonsult AB – look in the bottom of this page.

The advantage with doing a PersonProfile is that the coaching will be more efficient. Because, partly the coach gets faster understanding of the development needs and partly the coach can be more "on the spot" in his or her coaching, i.e. one advice doesn't work always for all people, because people are different!

You can buy a PersonProfile in different formats in our eShop – here.

And how do you take care of your personal trademark? Does it become by happening or you built up your personal trademark (“personmark”) in a conscious way? Do you know how to get charisma? Well, you do that by acting consistently based on your core values and core personality. With the HumanGuide concepts can you discover your core personality and partly too your core values – both better and faster compared to other ways.

Another alternative for personal development is that you participate in a program, where the HumanGuide concepts is a module. Our basic module can be done in about two hours. Then you

  • learn the personality theory Eight boxes, which is the core of the HumanGuide concepts
  • increase your self-knowledge based on the Eight boxes, which facilitates own personal development
  • be better to coaching other people and support other to figure out the best life direction
  • be better to cooperate with other people – especially those who differ mostly from your personality
  • be better to understand personal conflicts and understand how they can be handled

How can increased personality knowledge support a good personal development? In many ways e.g.

  • to choose a job, which gives a high passionindex between the personality and the job (tasks) or the culture. This also include to choose relevant education…
  • to make it easier to be successful, when you go for a new job
  • to understand when I exaggerate my strongest strength and how to handle that
  • to understand better what methods suit best for your personality and why

or when dealing with other people, then you can

  • improve to cooperate with them 
  • improve working in teams
  • better understand what characterizes people, who is complementary to you
  • better choose a well suitable coach for you
  • better figure out what type of company or country culture suits you best 

Result

The overall result is that you get an increased self-knowledge and in this way a good personal development. Moreover, you will get a better time both at work and in life.

"The tip about relaxation was on the spot! The background to the tip was that I had the opinion that it was difficult to be outside my comfort zone, when I was under change. I contacted then Rolf Kenmo, who in connection to leadership development had gone through a personality test with me. I asked, if he could be a coach for me. This led to an email dialogue, which gave me the relaxation tip, when he had looked at my testresult..

I took his advice. Today is relaxation a natural part of my everyday life. This leads to a clearer opinion about my own answers and ideas, which I dare to follow;-) It works well. I have also read Rolf’s book “Let the Personality Bloom”. Rolf’s tips and ideas have been very valuable for me.”

The HumanGuide Concepts for Private Life

priuvThe picture shows Rolf Kenmo, management consultant and inventor of the HumanGuide concepts, and his life partner since 1994. They are an example of how you can benefit from the concepts privately e.g. how you fit together, i.e. have similar interests and also understand each other's needs – that crucially facilitate life. Moreover, it gives them great support to be supportive to their 2 + 2 sons, plus families and grandchildren;-)

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight basic dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you only “be” one of 16 types. The popular DISC-model (and similar) has only four basic dimensions. And the Five factor model has only five basic dimensions...

Are you satisfied with your life at work and in your private life?

The HumanGuide concepts can be used both at work and in life, i.e. according to our slogan "HumanGuide improves at work and in life". Many of the concepts used at work can also be used in the private life, e.g. from to identify the "perfect" job for yourself to how to support your children in their choice of an occupation and based on that choice the relevant kind of education. Etc.

How can personality knowledge support the private life? In many ways e.g.

  • at first – all the ways for your personal development
  • what hobby or interest suits me? It isn’t always so easy to find a good one…
  • how to handle my family, my parents, friends and other people?
  • what is a suitable life partner for me?
  • is this a suitable life partner for me?
  • how to cooperate better with my life partner?

If you are interested in any of these areas, what can you then do? Well, e.g.

  • Buy the book "Let the Personality Bloom". More information about the book here  "Products"
  • Get in touch with an authorised user – a coach here

Job matching

When it comes to choice of occupation, then most people immediately think of certain jobs e.g. because the parents have that job, buddies have chosen it, the job is attractive just now, etc. It is much smarter to do this in a two-step rocket. At first you analyse your personality in a nuanced way -- why not use HumanGuide). If you use a good concept, then you realize more precisely your human needs, your motivation (the drive forces). Many of the competing concepts are too simple and others too complex. Our opinion is that the eight factors, which HumanGuide is based on, is an optimum. Neither too few (simple) nor too many (complex).

First, you understand clearly your needs and drive forces, then you should choose what types of jobs can match your personality in a good way. If you do this, then the chance is much greater that the type of job that you focus on will be the one you also will like in the long term – and in tough times!

Of course it is not only the personality that matters in getting a good match for a job but also the leader, the company/organization, your own talents of different kinds (logical ability, language, etc.), values, etc.

A leading landmark for maximum motivation is to accept a good matching to one's own personality, and according to the book Drive by Daniel Pink:

  • that you be in control of your job situation
  • that the job is purposeful.

What Life Partner Suits Me?

At work it is an advantage if the teams in which you are a member are based on diversity. However, when it comes to choosing a life partner, it is preferable to strive after many similar strong factors and also values of course. Why? Because if you two are very different, then you both will have very different interests and hobbies, e.g. one in the couple likes to be in nature as often as possible and the other in the couple perhaps hates it... But if you have two or more factors as strong ones, then it is, of course, good if other factors are complementary, e.g. one is strong at Structure (one of the factors in the personality theory Eight Boxes) and the other is not.

Person Chemistry Analysis

The same as at work it could be valuable to do a so-called Person Chemistry Analysis. And… it is more valuable to do such an analysis in a couple relation, because then you will hopefully be together for a long time and by such an analysis you will get a good time together;-)

Job and education choices

Here you use the same way as for “Job matching” – look above. Moreover, here is added an important aspect. In this way you will see a clear connection between the chosen education direction and an ideal possible job. This will create a strong motivation for the studies, which then will increase the possibility to get the ideal job!

Result

According to our slogan ”HumanGuide improves at work and in life”;-)

The HumanGuide Concepts for Leaders

ledareuv

The picture shows Rolf Kenmo, management consultant and the inventor of the HumanGuide concepts, at a signpost in the Rondane mountains, Norway. He has in many ways had great use of the HumanGuide concepts, when he has been a leader, e.g. to staff, start and handle teams, to coach different persons, to handle conflicts, etc.

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight basic dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you only “be” one of 16 types. The popular DISC-model (and similar) has only four basic dimensions. And the Five factor model has only five basic dimensions.

The demands on leaders increase all the time, but some tasks are eternal, e.g.

  • How to coach a particular person in a good way? There are few general prescriptions that work for everyone, because all human beings are different. Therefore it is crucial to understand how people differ. The more accurate you are in your understanding, the better you can coach.
  • How to handle the conflict between X and Y?
  • How can I figure out the best person for this task?
  • How is a suitable personal development for me?
  • How to create good teams and then support them in a good way?
  • How should we succeed with our recruitment/staffing?

If you are a leader, then you can look upon the HumanGuide concepts as a toolbox with many possibilities, e.g. coaching, staffing/recruitment, handling conflicts, etc.

If you are a leader and wish to have the HumanGuide concepts as a part of your toolbox, then you start with doing a HumanGuide PersonProfile via the internet, which takes about 15 minutes. The next step is to fine-tune the result with an authorized "humanguide”, which takes about one hour depending on the objective.

Then you can as a leader continue with a coaching program with your humanguide. There are many versions of a coaching program depending on objectives and conditions. If you are interested, then contact an authorized humanguide or us at Humankonsult AB -- look at the foot of this page.

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you "be" one of 16 types. The popular DISC model (and similar) has only four dimensions. And the Five Factor Model has only five basic dimensions.

To summerize – How can personality knowledge support leadership development? In many ways e.g.

  • to understand how to coach people in a good way
  • to recruit and staff well
  • to create good teams and support them in a good way
  • to handle conflicts in a constructive way

Result

The overall result is that you get leaders, who learn to be a leader in harmony with their personality, i.e. to be one's self in an advantageously way. Moreover, they learn to use a very broad and practical toolbox as a support for their leadership.

The colurs in HumanGuide are: Orange, grey, green, violett, blue, yellow, brown and red, i.e. Then the test result will be much more nuanced. Above on this page there is a video with the symbolics for the eight colours.

"For eight years I had  a personal meeting about my PersonProfile á la HumanGuide. I have done many other personality tests cince then, but my opinion about this "method" is that it was fascinating and the most accurate. The PersonProfile is still pinned up at work"

"As a consultant I have done many personality tests. The results made me feel confirmed, but I didn't get any answer: Why I didn't was happy to 100%? This autumn I did the HumanGuide-test, which only took 15 min to do. It explained for me, where I had most motivation and because of then easiest to be my best version. So now I know!"

The HumanGuide Concepts for Teams

teamuvThe picture shows Rolf Kenmo, Humankonsult AB, Sweden, management consultant and inventor of the HumanGuide Concepts and Giselle Welter, psychologist and CTO for RH 99 (Resources Humanos), Brazil. What you see here is the release of the book “Let the Personality Bloom” 2007 in Sao Paulo, as a milestone of a cooperation. It started in 2000. We have mostly acted as a global virtual team. In this cooperation the HumanGuide concepts have been invaluable, i.e. mostly because both we have clearly understood each other's personality (our PersonProfiles) and their effects  – from the first moment!

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight basic dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you only “be” one of 16 types. The popular DISC-model (and similar) has only four basic dimensions. And the Five factor model has only five basic dimensions.

 What is absolutely crucial for climbing up and down on Mount Everest?

We got the answer from a mountain climber, who has climbed Mount Everest and many more high mountains in the world. He asked the question and then he said: It isn’t to be a good climber. It isn’t to be well-trained. It isn’t to be in good health. It is to understand the other team members drives. Their personality and values. How they act in stressful situations?

OK you don’t plan to climb up and down Mount Everest, but now and then everyone comes in stressful situations. Then it is important to understand how your team members in that situation will act. If not, then you and other can get big problems…

With the HumanGuide PersonProfile you will know every team member’s corefactor and co-factor, i.e. the strongest and second strongest strength among the eight basic dimensions in the Eight boxes personality theory. Learn more below…

Diversity in teams is best, but...

A lot of research shows that diversity in a team gives the best result. Mostly because then you don't see narrowly and one-eyed as when you, for example, need to solve a problem. However, the catch is that many people believe that it is more difficult to cooperate with someone who is different. Therefore they are keener on recruiting and staffing someone, who "is like we are". When the team members are very similar to each other, then there is the crucial risk of getting so-called "group-thinking", i.e. they have more or less the same opinion and oppose the one who has other opinions. There are many examples of fatal results from this kind of thinking. One was when a spaceship exploded in USA just after take-off. Another was when we lost the ship Wasa in Sweden. This was also a kind of  group-thinking because no one dared to tell the king that this ship would sink.

The HumanGuide concepts support you so that you can more easily can get a team with diversity to cooperate better. 

For example we have developed a special concept to staff and develop a team that participates in UF, which is a Swedish development program for schools (the participants are around 18 years old), and the purpose is to train in a practical way entrepreneurship combined with lessons. The origin of the concept's development was that the teachers were not pleased when the pupils mostly staffed their UF-team with their buddies and thus the team most often became very "cloned" (homogeneous). More under "Testimonials" below.

To get a team to function very well you need good answers on these questions...

  • How to staff teams well?
  • How to get a good start and teambuilding?
  • How to handle conflicts?
  • How to get tips about how to cooperate with different members in the team and how they react during stressful situations?
  • How should we think, if we need to change the staffing?

A team with diversity has the best potential to solve its tasks well, but in teams with diversity there is the biggest risks for bad results and destructive conflicts. How should you then handle the risks and how to develop the team in a good way?One way to act, of course, is to be proactive whenever you can e.g. to staff and start the team in a good way. How to do that? Well, by learning more about each other, e.g. via the HumanGuide concepts and using some concepts for teambuilding and team development. 

Of course you can also improve cooperation in established teams by using some of our HumanGuide concepts. You always start by doing the personality test. Then there are many ways for team development depending on the circumstances and the ambition level. 

How can then personality knowledge support team development? In many ways e.g.

  • if you understand other people well, then it is much easier to cooperate. You will understand e.g. their drives, what can make them angry, how to give them an advice they can accept, etc
  • to understand what type of personalities are a cooperation challenge
  • to understand how you can contribute best in a team
  • to solve many conflicts, if the cause is a challenge concerning personal chemistry, which is a very common cause

Result

The overall result is that you get a better cooperation in the team via increased self-knowledge, increased openness, and increased trust. These team qualities have a crucial effect on a team's cooperation capacity and performance.

As a "bonus" the team members learn a very useful personality theory that can, for example, be used in discussions about staffing and recruitment. This personality theory will also be like a language.

A strong argument for HumanGuide is that the underlying personality theory consists of eight dimensions. Then you get a more nuanced testresult and sharper analysis. Compare with MBTI, where you "be" one of 16 types. The popular DISC model (and similar) has only four basic dimensions. And the Five Factor Model has only five basic dimensions.

Testimonials

”Rolf Kenmo has adapted Szondi’s theory to everyday life. It is a great idea of conveying the theory to a broad use. That is an essential asset for making the test results immediately accepted and it works in any culture. We use HumanGuide in recruiting and team development for an internationally operating company.”

Thomas Seiler, CEO, U-blox AG, Switzerland (2003)

”The theory is explained very pedagogically in the HumanGuide concepts and it is a good support for my clients (since 2002), in vocational guidance and in coaching. HumanGuide supports well in working life as well as in private life.”

Giselle Welter, psychologist, spec. in vocational guidance, RH99, Sao Paulo, Brazil  (2000)

"Personality has always been a debatable topic throughout research and countless psychometric tests available for use. However none of these tests have the HumanGuide approach, which is practical, simple, easy to use and accurate to act upon. Supported by extensive research, HumanGuide takes in consideration eight factors, using the psychology of colours and symbols for meaningful comprehension.

The HumanGuide test does not stand alone, it goes beyond any other test. It provides unique opportunities to measure further person chemistry, passion index, job and culture profiles...It has all what an organisation needs to overcome today's more than ever complex human resources challenges.

HumanGuide has considerably improved my personal and professional life and I always appreciate our collaboration with Rolf Kenmo."

”We got better staffing in our UF-teams. In the start of the school year we had a course by Rolf Kenmo in the personality test HumanGuide. The pupils did the test after our course. Then they were to staff their teams based on qualities and personality instead of gender. This resulted in more teams with more of a mix between girls and boys. Moreover, more chose to cooperate with new persons instead of their best buddies. In the distribution of roles in the UF companions the pupils based their staffing on who had the best qualities and knowledge -- instead of gender"

Henrik Samuelsson, teacher in UF (Young entrepreneurship and business), JENSEN gymnasium Södra, Sweden (2014-08-27) 

*) The school became Sweden's best UF-school in 2014.

"Rolf Kenmo assisted us in a relaxed and pedagogic way to start to work to create understanding of each other as individuals. The objective was to further improve the cooperation in our team. Rolf's work was appreciated by the participants and created a positive foundation for further development."

Eva Kimber, manager at Svensk Exportkredit, Sweden (2010-07-21) 

"Our delivery is a function undertaking with a big management responsibility; therefore, it was important that HumanGuide's Team Chemistry Analysis gave the management team not only individual understanding of strengths and risks but also knowledge about the whole team's chemistry. The management team's total strength is crucial in order to deliver at least at the agreement level."

Leif Öjestedt, manager at WM-data, now CGI AB, Sweden (2011-04-06)
