FIRO® Foundation Programme

At this moment in time we are only running these courses virtually but do check back to see when we run these in person in the future. Please check our training calendar for details or contact us if you have any questions.

Qualify to use FIRO assessments to improve personal relationships and professional performance

Enhance individual and team effectiveness by uncovering the motivations that influence communication style and behaviour.


The FIRO instrument reveals how you tend to behave towards others, and how you want others to behave towards you. Based on the premise that people have three core needs that drive their interpersonal behaviour, FIRO is a great fit for developing leaders and building high performing teams. Its accessible insights can be applied to improving communication, building trust, enhancing leadership style and diffusing conflict.

The FIRO Foundation Programme will equip you with the skills to administer FIRO assessments and use the results to help others understand the impact of their behaviours on others. FIRO qualification provides access to both FIRO-B and FIRO Business instruments – the latter using business-focused terminology, and being particularly useful for multi-national clients.

This interactive workshop is complemented by an additional one-day programme, Using the FIRO Instrument with Teams, which introduces processes and exercises for running impactful and engaging team events. 15% discount applies when both courses are booked together.
