Course Overview

The Firo-B Instrument is designed to measure behaviour that derives from interpersonal needs. Understanding these interpersonal needs assists individuals to have effective interactions and relations with others both in and outside the work environment. The FIRO-B® was developed in the 1950’s and is currently used extensively in organisational settings. The FIRO-B® has many uses, including: Self Development, Enhancing Workplace Relationships, Team Building, Career Development and Leadership Development.
