FIRO® Certification

Get certified to use the FIRO framework to improve relationships and team performance

Enhance individual and team effectiveness with an assessment that uncovers the motivations behind communication style and behaviour.


The FIRO instrument reveals how you tend to behave towards others, and how you want others to behave towards you. The FIRO tool identifies three core needs that drive interpersonal behaviour and 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 Certification programme will equip you with the skills to administer FIRO assessments and interpret the results to help people understand the impact of their behaviours on others. FIRO certification provides access to both the FIRO-B and FIRO Business instruments – the latter using business-oriented terminology, and working well in multi-national clients.

This qualification programme is complemented by an additional one-day course, Using the FIRO Instrument with Teams. This extra workshop will introduce you to processes and exercises to run impactful and engaging team events.

It doesn’t take long to grasp the framework, and once you’re there the uses and implications are far-reaching.
