Rolf Kenmo started the development of the HumanGuide's concepts. He has been a consultant for almost his whole working life. He worked at first with IT for about 10 years. Since 1975 he has focused on psychology and pedagogy in order to use that knowledge for development of individuals/leaders, teams and companies/organizations. In 1983 he started Humankonsult AB in order to go his own way for creating more "Human efficiency". What that means is not to work harder, instead it means increasing people's self-knowledge and in this way have a better time both at work and in life. The choices at work and in life fit then better a person"s personality. Moreover, it will be easier to cooperate with other people by better understanding of myself and others.
In 1986 he started the development of the HumanGuide,s concepts with crucial support from the Swedish psychologists Lars-Erik, Liljeqvist, Bo Haglund, Mary Norman, Leo Berlips and Olof Rehn. In 1999 he started to cooperate with psychologists abroad. They have in common the L. Szondi's (1893-1986) personality theory. The most important psychologists from abroad for the development of the concepts have been Friedjung Jüttner, Switzerland (The Szondi-Institut); Giselle Welter, Brazil; Christian Clair, France, and Robert Maebe, Belgium. Since 2000 Giselle Welter has also contributed to the development of the concepts, e.g. she has carried out an extensive validation study in 2006 with very good psychometric results for the concepts test module -- the core of the concepts. HumanGuide in that study in Brazil was the first approved personality test (April-2009) that was online and based on forced-choice (ipsative). Look at SATEPSI.
The HumanGuide®-concepts can be used in many ways, because the concepts are based on modules that can be combined in many ways -- they are not only a personality test. The HumanGuide®-concepts are a test and development system! Typical applications are for:
development of individuals/leaders
development of teams
handling conflict (better cooperation by understanding of each other)
development of organizations e.g. support in recruitment.
