The groundwork for building effective and successful working relationships

The FIRO (Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation) instrument helps repair broken relationships and takes good, functional relationships to a higher level. It is the key that unlocks the potential in workplace interactions.

FIROFIRO's accessible and universally applicable framework reveals how individuals can shape and adapt their individual behaviours, influence others effectively and build trust among colleagues. It is an excellent resource for coaching individuals and teams about the underlying drivers behind their interactions with others.

FIRO: managing relationships in the workplace

Relationships are important. They are an inevitable part of life, and yet can be a potential source of tension in organisations. In the workplace, performance, delivery and efficiency are required, often from a team of mere acquaintances. To achieve high performance, teams need to operate on trust and a solid foundation of good working relationships. The FIRO instrument targets this need, identifying the drivers underlying the behaviours that shape relationships for individuals and teams within an organisation.
