The Functional Fluency Model

The Functional Fluency model helps people examine their own behaviour and find ways to change it if they wish to. It gives people a menu of effective behaviours to choose from – your go-to strength. It is a model for developing “functionally fluent behaviour”.

Functional Fluency is:

  • The natural way that human beings get along well together - human functioning in flow.
  • The use of those positive and flexible ways of responding to each other and yourself (!) that help us to communicate well and build effective relationships.
  • A name for our social "response - ability" - responding by putting energy into effective behaviours

When people become more functionally fluent:

  • They communicate more effectively and find relationships more satisfying and successful.
  • They learn how to choose responses that help things turn out well, instead of repeating old automatic reactions that sometimes make things worse.
  • They find they save a lot of time, energy and stress!

Your Personal TIFF Experience

A great way to start getting to know Functional Fluency is through your own personal "TIFF Experience". This process really puts the "personal" back into "personal development".

You can choose a licenced TIFF provider, who you feel you can connect with. This person will provide you with a link to fill in a TIFF questionnaire online in your own time. The result of this will be a snapshot of your patterns of social behaviour. In a collaborative one-on-one feeback session, your TIFF provider will support you in making sense of your behavioural profile and provide guidance for how to use this information.
