  • Important, but how to handle?
  • My rule is that differences can can cause irritation or worse – conflicts, so why tell a lot of Brazilians and Swedes that the cooperation between these cultures works well?
  • The country culture’s development is based on geography, history, religion/philosophy and language. The language has a “two-way” influence e.g. in the Mongolian language many words express the cardinal points.
  • It takes a lot of time and in this way it is also expensive. Moreover there is no standard, so it is not so easy to compare AND communicate. It is also easy to doubt the results, because communication about culture is not so easy.
  • I doubt a little the 1000 years, BUT It is very slow
    Interesting about the on/off attitude of cultures: It is not at all influenced about the personality of the person, who gives his opinion
  • Note that his concept is value-based
  • The five dimensions in his concept
  • A comparison…
  • It is not only a personality test – it is a test and development system. Most competitors are selling tests, but we are selling development in the everyday work;-)
  • -75>>>The history to offer the HG concepts in Brazil started with a training, where I among other things learned about Leopold Szondi’s personality theory. I find this theory very useful in order to understand myself and other people. Even compared to other tests/theories I had come across.
    -86>>>The development of HumanGuide© started. There was no questionnaire with its origin from Szondi’s theory - at least known of us.
    Since then there have been made thousands of profiles. The deep understanding it gives for the users have been very much appreciated –
    especially that it is a test and development system with all components fitting to each other.
    The next important step was to design a test based on Szondi’s theory. The objective was to design a efficient selection routine for bus guides going to the Alps from Sweden. There was already two Szondi-based tests. However, I could not use them for my purpose. One was Szondi’s own-designed test, which is used in the clinical area and therefore not relevant in “normal” working-life. The other was the so called Berufsbilder-test designed of Martin Achtnich, which is based on photos and therefore impossible to use in my case. I started to design a questionnaire, which has been used since then. In the beginning we used the ordinary evaluation after each journey of the bus guides, which gave us good quality indication of the selection routine. I started also to use this questionnaire in my consulting services and find it very useful and accurate. Other consultants became interested to use it, etc
    Step by step I added new tools within the HumanGuide concepts and it became more and more useful.
    -99>>>I heard that there was a global Szondi conference every third year and next time it should be in Louvain-la-Nueve in Belgium. I attended at the conference and also contributed with the workshop “Szondi-based applications in the working life”. I got appreciation for my concept development from e.g. a representative of the Szondi institute in Zürich, Schwitzerland and Giselle! Giselle and I started to emailing each other and she became interested to make a Brazilian version.
    -00>>>Step by step we started to translate the concepts into Portuguese via English. A special experience was that we improved also the Swedish testitems in this process, because the languages and cultures differs and we had to search for the “human core”, which is more stable than “superficial behaviour”. We tested the Portuguese version and many persons were astonished about the accuracy.
    -02>>>Giselle worked mostly - in the start - with career development and recruitment assistance. However, now she started to use the concepts for personal and team development. The results were very good. The clients appreciated that the concepts were very accurate, pedagogic, practical and easy to use. The first customer was one of Giselle’s customer since a long time PSA Peugeot Citroen in Resende.
  • Do you wish more information – please tell!
  • -04>>>The biggest customer in Brazil Mr Clean. They have laundries all over Brazil and about 1000 empl.
    -07>>>The 2nd and 3rd visit in Brazil
    -09>>>HumanGuide was approved in Brazil
    -09>>>The 4th visit and more will come;-)
    Since 1999 there is a growing interest from abroad to use the concepts based on HumanGuide©. 2010 there are users in Sweden, Brazil, Switzerland, Poland and Netherlands. Some of these users are using HG globally.
  • NOTE! Motivation-based, i.e. what are the drives? HumanGuide have more “pure” factors then other concepts, therefore easier to use and learn!!!
  • Assess yourself. There are questionnaires in Swedish, Portuguese and English…
  • Explain the theory…
  • The CEO who asked his management team: What is 2+2? The Financial manager: It is €, but what do you like it to be?
  • Some typical answers what 2 + 2 is per factor... Note that the used font should support the meaning of the factor.
  • This is me. NOTE! You have done the light (and quick) version of the test and then you can only have an idea about your
    Strongest
    Second strongest
    Lowest factor
  • What happens when people meet each other. How to succeed with cooperation?
  • The HG version of the Brazilian culture…
  • Look at the carnival! There are Exposure, Imagination and Contacts
  • The Swedish culture… Almost the opposite…
  • This is the house for the boss of the charcoal stack…
    Quality: It is a fire! You need to be responsible. Don’t fall in sleep! Carry out the work and be in charge of the assistants.
    Structure: Have discipline. Take care so the charcoal stack don’t go on fire!
    Stability: Work with you hands! Follow the routines. Be aware of the values in the charcoal.
  • It is important to understand both the possibilities and the risks. Then you should use and develop the opportunities and guard yourself against the risks.
  • My rule is that differences can can cause irritation or worse – conflicts, so why tell a lot of Brazilians and Swedes that the cooperation between these cultures works well?
    BRAZIL
    The Megafon: I have been at street carneval in Paraty…
    The Caleidoscope: I have also seen all fantastic creativity at the sambodrom in Rio…
    The Contact box: Again the street carneval…
    SWEDEN
    The columns: We like to be reliable. Like the Swede, who pointed out what was wrong with the guillotine…
    The chess: We are disciplined, e.g. The French president, who noticed Swededish’ pedestrians waiting for green light…
    The purse: We were hesitating a lot to join EU and especially EMU
  • The bridge is: Sensibility. How? Well, the typical Brazilian have the opinion that the typical Swedes are a little boring. However, they are nice and gentle;-) The typical Swede has the opinion that the Brazilians is almost crazy – at least do things, which is not so common in Sweden… However, they are nice and caring.
  • Amazing with the connection between Brazil and Sweden by the BRASA.
  • As the former Brazilian amabassador pointed out in the last Word Championship: The Swedes were nice to us as guests in Sweden 1958. We won! The Swedes are gentle…
  • According to HumanGuide measurement Brazilians and USAns have the same strong factors except for Power. Why?
    And note that Brazilians likes very much to be joking about USA…
  • My explanation is the distance from Europe to USA and Brazil. Moreover, the exotic image of Brazil. How? Well, people’s drives (=factors) influences a lot the decisions in their life. The like to act in accordance with their factors e.g. it is shorter between Europe and USA compared to Europe and Brazil. Moreover, there is no jungle in USA. This is good facts for the factor Power. On the contrary with Brazil. It is far away and also an exotic place. The factor Imagination likes that.

  • I am born in this region of Sweden and it has a connection to Brazil…
  • Rolf is born in the region Värmland in Sweden (map – next page). He has got an AHA-experience: Värmland Is Sweden’s Brazil. Why, e.g.
    • they say “te vecka”, it means next week, but it means no specific week
    • they like to tell stories and if someone have doubts, the answer is: They are not lying, they are only talking “probably”
    • there are a lot of poets, artists, actors, etc
  • I am born in this region of Sweden and it has a connection to Brazil…
  • When you do the internet version, then you will get more nuances. Explain mine…
    Look at Imagination and I am also from Värmland
  • I have now showed you a little about the concept for describing cultures. The team development concept is also very useful. I exemplify with Giselle and me. Here you see our MiniProfiles.
    You remember mine
    Primary factors = Power, Imagination and Structure
    Secondary factors = Relation, Quality and Contacts
    Corefactor = Imagination, Co-factor = Structure.
    Giselle’s is - perhaps the audience could tell…
    Primary factors = Power, Imagination and Quality
    Secondary factors =Exposure, Structure and Contacts
    Corefactor = Imagination, Co-factor = Quality
    It is a little peculiar with the colours in the Swedish’ flag and my MiniProfile + concept, but it was not planned of me;-) The same with the Brazilian flag and Giselle’s MiniProfile. However, my similarity is more clockwise;-)
    Nevertheless, in my opinion, Sweden and Brazil make a great team according to the flags and my concept. Perhaps therefore Sao Paulo is Sweden’s biggest industrial town with 33 000 empl. in Swedish-owned companies. Next is Gothenburg with 19 000 empl.
  • When you do the internet version, then you will get more nuances. Explain mine…
    Look at Imagination and I am also from Värmland
  • NOTE! That we have the Jante-law. It is about being humble, BUT a lot of Swedes has learnt this too much. Again our culture… However, there are still people here in Sweden, who remember the Viking Law!
    § 1 Var modig och framåt

  • E.g. at these companies…
  • Also a school…
  • Do you wish more information – please tell!
  • The HumanGuide could support all people to a better life quality. However, the decision is theirs.
    The main objective is that everyone comes closer and closer to their potential.
    If someone grows well, then he or she got more appreciation from other people.
    This gives energy for more growth, which gives more appreciation. The good circle is a fact.
    You can use the HumanGuide concepts for
    Organisation development
    Leadership development
    Team development
    Conflict handling, etc
  • Manager’s opinions…
  • All areas with applications for the HumanGuide concepts
  • Here you can place the corefactors and co-factors for the profiles.
