Group Dynamics...The Power of Needs
There are many models for exploring how teams and groups develop and operate. This workshop uses Will Schutz’s FIRO-B theory – Fundamental Interpersonal Relationship Orientation – Behaviors. We each have unique interpersonal needs that strongly motivate us. These needs relate to areas Schutz calls inclusion, control, and openness. Just as with our biological needs, we become uncomfortable and anxious if our own unique needs are not being met.
This workshop includes use of the FIRO-B instrument, which is a personality instrument that measures how you typically behave with other people and how you expect them to behave toward you. Its interpretation can dramatically increase your understanding of behavior in areas such as the following:
- How you come across to others, and why this may not be the way you see yourself or the impression you might want to make.
- How and why conflict develops between well-meaning people.- How to understand you’re own needs and how to manage them as you interact with others.
