Team Roles Defined

Discover your Unique Team Contribution – Belbin® Team Roles

All of us have specific and different contributions to a team – Dr Meredith Belbin’s cutting edge Team Research proves that team success depends on each team member being free to make their best contribution to the team. Team Roles are tried and tested – though developed 20 years ago Belbin team roles are still the Gold Standard when it comes to understanding how to drive team success.

Team Roles Defined

Dr. Belbin’s research at Henley Management College identified 3 categories of behaviour needed in a team – Action, Thinking and People orientation and his nine team roles fit into these categories with the corresponding traits:

Unique 360 Format

What is special about team roles is that – unlike most other profiles – it is a 360 format allowing you to compare your perception of your team role with that of others. Each Team Role has strengths and weaknesses, and the secret is to make sure that your strengths are enhanced and your weaknesses controlled.
