Belbin Team Roles

The Belbin Self-Perception Inventory or the Belbin Team Role Inventory, is a tool used to gain insight into an individual’s role within a team. It was developed by Dr. Meredith Belbin after studying teams at Henley Management College. This work identified 9 clusters of behaviour – each of which is termed a team-role. Each team-role has a combination of strengths and allowable weaknesses. When you complete the Belbin self-perception inventory you will receive a report of your preferences for each of the 9 Team Roles. You may find that you have 3 or 4 natural roles which you can use appropriately depending on the current situation. Very few people display characteristics of just one team role. The value of team theory lies in enabling an individual or team to benefit from self-knowledge and adjust according to the demands being made by the external situation.
