FIRO® Application Programmes

The FIRO-B® reports gives a very clear explanation of how people working together may potentially match or clash. It is therefore very valuable in:


Teambuilding – identifying likely sources of compatibility or tension, aiding effective decision making, improving communication, openness and trust.

Leadership development – increasing self-awareness and interpersonal effectiveness for personal growth and leadership development.

Relationship counselling – identifying and resolving possible sources of incompatibility and dissatisfaction.

Assessment – providing essential data when preparing candidates in assessment and development centres.

So trainers use the FIRO-B® instrument to deeply understand relationships in the workplace. It is particularly valuable when relationships are strained or when there are low levels of cooperation in a team.
