belbin…what you need

to know

Do you ever feel like there is something lacking from your team, but aren’t quite sure what it is? Is your team performing at its highest capability or is there room for improvement? Understanding what makes a good team great, goes beyond employing the people with the best qualifications or most experience.  A great team has the right balance of skill, knowledge and behaviours within its people and through a Belbin workshop we can help you identify just that. 

Belbin empowers individuals and organisations to maximise their performance through truly understanding how each team member works.   Revolving around the highly acclaimed profiling theory “Belbin Team Roles”, this workshop will help individuals better understand themselves and how they and their colleagues fit within a team.

Through Belbin, new teams can be assembled, existing teams can be improved, and everyone can understand the difference they make in the workplace.  It’s a win, win, win!

i’m interested… so how does it work?

Before the workshop day, each team member will take an online self-perception test with the option to include 360-degree feedback from observers or colleagues to build their Belbin Team Role profile.  Each profile will be created based on how the individual and their observers perceive how they work within a team.  From here each team member will receive a report that shows how they fit into each of the 9 Belbin Team Roles and where their strengths and weaknesses lie.

Following the report findings, the workshop will be customised and delivered to give you the knowledge and understanding about how the different profiles within your team work together and how to assemble the most effective team for your needs.

Anita’s delivery style was authentic and engaging. She delivered really good and relevant material. This really helped to be able to have an open and honest dialogue with the team. I know that we will be able to apply this information immediately as a team rather than a group of individuals working in different areas of the business.

It made me think of new ways of doing things with regards to my relationships with other team members.

I thought it was a great idea getting everybody together interacting and getting to know one another. I have worked with a fair amount of my colleagues and did not even know what they looked like and didn’t know much about them.

It is a beneficial investment for any company as far as getting to know more about who their fellow team mates are and how they function as part of the team.

History of Belbin

Dr Meredith Belbin developed the Belbin Team Role theory during an intense study of teams at Henley Business School in the UK in the late 60s and early 70s.

His research found that it was not intellect, but balance, which enabled a team to succeed. The most successful companies tend to be those with a mix of people with a range of behaviours and attributes.

Belbin Team Roles theory was created identifying nine distinct clusters of behaviour in people within teams. Finding the effective balance of these behaviours for a successful team has seen Belbin Team Roles used in organisations ever since.
