FIRO Business® Profile
Discover how to best interact with others in the business world based on your interpersonal communication style.
The internationally recognized FIRO Business® Profile gives you the knowledge and insight to become a more competent and understanding communicator, whether your position in your organization is at the bottom of the ladder or the top. Discover how you like to approach interactions with others, how you prefer that others act, and how to best work in group settings with this profile.
The FIRO Business® profile uses three categories that directly affect how you communicate with others and develop relationships. These include involvement (how you best relate to groups or others), influence (how you see yourself or your level of authority in conjunction to others) and connection (how you best identify with others). By discovering how much you rely on each of these in your interactions with others, you’ll learn how to hone in on the strengths associated with each category and develop the weaknesses so that they become beneficial to you.
You’ll also learn how you prefer to participate in each behavior: whether you are the one expressing the behavior or if you are wishing for others to express that same behavior. Understanding both sides of each area of the FIRO Business test, as well as a total culmination of those behaviors’ role in your style overall, allow you to comprehend how to approach certain communicative situations, workplace relationships, and leadership roles.
The FIRO Business Profile can be beneficial to anyone currently working at an organization, whether they are looking for ways to better themselves or ways to make the office run more smoothly. Some instances where a FIRO Business Profile would come in handy include:
- Opening up a colleague who seems unapproachable or difficult to talk to
- Wanting to take on more responsibilities or a leadership position
- Feeling like your thoughts and opinions aren’t being heard in the workplace
- Working in difficult group settings
