How to use Functional Fluency to build relationships and create better teams

A team is a special group of people, purposefully drawn together to contribute their unique and complementary skills towards a common goal, in which they must hold themselves and each other mutually accountable.

Collective performance is the key factor differentiating a team from any random organisational group.

The benefits of Functional Fluency for Teams

Functional Fluency can help you as a team leader to:

  • Develop effective workplace relationships within your team or organisation.
  • Assist people contributing to behavioral change processes, by ensuring that the teams in your organisation are collaborating optimally in order to drive sustainable outcomes.
  • Create teams capable of solving problems through constructive dialogue.
  • Provide a means for your team members to deal with differences successfully and significantly optimise individual and team strengths.
  • Build high performing, can-do teams.

By using the Functional Fluency model, team members learn to choose effective combinations from a selection of behavioural options, based on information available to them, in any situation. This is what we like to call ‘fluent teamwork’.

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.
