Functional Fluency and TIFF

Functional Fluency is a model for understanding how people behave, and a practical framework to help them ‘respond’ more and ‘react’ less.

Easy to understand, learning about the how to apply it can encourage people to:

  • Focus on their strengths and build on what they already do well
  • Identify patterns of behaviour that don’t work well and see how to change them
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Find relationships more satisfying and successful

Functional Fluency is the art and skill of interpersonal effectiveness.

What is TIFF?

The Temple Index of Functional Fluency (TIFF©) is a personal development tool based on the Functional Fluency model.   It has its roots in TA theory and was created by Dr Susannah Temple in 2002. See www.functionalfluency.com for more information.

Completion of the TIFF Questionnaire will provide a snapshot of your patterns of social behaviour.  It does not measure abilities or place you into a ‘type’ as some other instruments do.

The feedback process with a TIFF Provider is a collaborative process that produces a co-created profile.  The session then focuses on discussion, support and guidance for how you can put the information in the profile to use.

“The TIFF process puts the personal back into personal development, boosting morale and motivating change.  Using the self-awareness and understanding gained from TIFF enhances people’s abilities to build effective relationships”.
