FUNDAMENTAL INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS ORIENTATION-BEHAVIOR™ ASSESSMENT

The FIRO-B® (Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior) instrument helps individuals understand their behavior and the behavior of others. With the insights of an individual’s interpersonal needs it can help improve workplace interactions. The interpretation the FIRO-B assessment provides can increase an individual’s understanding of behavior in areas such as:

  • How they come across to others – and why this may not be the way they see themselves
  • How and why conflict develops between well-meaning people
  • How to understand their own needs as they interact with others
  • How to manage their own needs in most interpersonal interactions

What the FIRO-B Measures

The FIRO-B instrument identifies three areas of interpersonal need.

Inclusion

This need indicates how individuals generally include other people in their life and how much attention, contact, and recognition they want from others. Inclusions is about them in relation to groups – small or large.

Control

This need indicates how much influence and responsibility an individual want and how much they want others to lead and influence them. Control is about both their one-to-one relationships and their behavior as part of a group.

Affection

This need indicates how close and warm someone is with others and how close and warm they want others to be with them. Affection is about the need to establish comfortable one-to-one relationships (whereas Inclusion measures your needs for interacting with groups).

Uses for FIRO-B

  • Team Building – can be integrated in team-building initiatives and communication workshops by building success on the fundamental awareness that different people have different needs
  • Leadership Development – help leaders and executives unlock improvement in performance by better meeting the needs of peers
  • Individual Development – provides critical insights into how an individual’s need for inclusion, control and affection can shape their interaction with others.
