Belbin Team Role Model Management

Use talents to improving team performance

The Belbin team role model is designed to use the talents and personalities of team members. If you want your team to improve its performance by working together more effective, it is important that you learn to use the psychological diversity in your team to its fullest potential.

Real cooperation is not easy. We all strive for it but difficulties always arise at some point. Between team members there are big differences in style, attitude, temperament and personality. These differences are explained by the Belbin Team Role Model.

Belbin Team Roles

Team Roles describe the behavior that we can recognize when we work together with others. Each team role is actually a strategy in dealing with work and with colleagues. In other words, a favorite style of cooperation that can be seen by working with others. Team roles are the perfect instrument to use these different styles to their fullest potential.

Team roles are complementary

A team must consist of different roles to achieve maximum performance. The nine roles are essentially complementary. They complement and reinforce each other, but they can also contradict and compete with each other. A team role says a lot about the style of work of a team member and comes from the personality of the individual.

In practice, we all have two or three team roles that fit us naturally and some that we really do not like.
