Posted 14 Feb 2017 by Betsy Kendall, VP Global Programmes, Delivery & Content

Whether you ‘just love!’ the idea of Valentine’s Day or you choose to avoid it like the plague, you can’t escape the need to form and manage relationships in life. But instead of focusing on the hard research about the importance of personality in forming and building meaningful relationships this Valentine’s Day, we simply want to share some content that’s fun and informative.

We’ve updated the design of our Valentine’s Type table for 2017! Download and share your Valentine’s Type tile here.

What if your date is just not your Type?!?

FIRO in action: Sandra and Terry 20 years on. How have their relationship and FIRO scores evolved in 20 years?

We follow up the original case study from the world’s first FIRO-B qualification programme. What light can be shed on their relationship then and 20 years later? How does that relate to their FIRO scores? Read more about FIRO in action with Sandra and Terry.
