After many years of research into teams in the workplace, Belbin have identified nine different behavioural contributions that people can make to a team – the nine Team Roles. Each of the Team Roles is important and needs to be present within the team if it is to be as successful as it possibly can be. Today, Belbin’s Team Role theory is still studied on management courses, and is used on a day-to-day basis by tens of thousands of businesses globally to enhance the performance of their teams.
Belbin Reports are an easy way to find out which of the nine Team Role behaviours an individual exhibits, and are packed full of personalised advice that is useful for both the individual and for anyone establishing or managing the team. The Reports are generated with input from both the individual, and up to six of their colleagues, meaning that it provides a full 360-degree perspective on how an individual behaves in the workplace. With knowledge of individual’s Team Role behaviours, it is much easier to ensure that you have the right people in the right role within the team (based on behaviour rather than job title), and it allows you to see where you might have gaps or overlaps which could make it harder for that team to achieve its objectives.
