For more than 50 years, the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation (FIRO®) approach has helped people understand their interpersonal needs and how those needs influence their communication styles and behavior. Building on the history and reliability of the FIRO model, the FIRO Business® assessment addresses the specific requirements of organizations. The FIRO Business assessment helps you develop great leaders while improving organizational performance. It is particularly valuable to businesses because it quickly gathers key insights for relating to direct reports, superiors, and peers, influencing and negotiating, making decisions, and setting priorities.

The FIRO Business assessment is ideal as an integral part of your leadership development initiatives. Helping to address coaching, team-building, and conflict management objectives.

What the FIRO Business Measures

The FIRO Business instrument identifies three areas of interpersonal need.

Involvement

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.

Influence

This need indicates how much authority and responsibility an individual want and how much they want others to lead, direct, or provide structure for them. Influence is about both their one-to-one relationships and their behavior as part of a group.

Connection

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

Uses for FIRO Business

  • 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 influence, connection and involvement can shape their interaction with others.
