What are Belbin team roles?

Sections of this topic

    The Belbin Team Inventory, also called the Belbin Self-Perception Inventory or Belbin Team Role Inventory is an assessment used to gain insight into an individual’s behavioural tendency in a team environment. It was devised by Dr. Meredith Belbin to measure preference for the nine Team Roles discovered whilst studying numerous teams at Henley Management College.

    A Belbin team role as defined by Dr Meredith Belbin is: “a tendency to behave, contribute and interrelate with others in a particular way.” At Fresh Tracks we use ‘Belbin Team Roles’ a lot to develop teams but what are they? For this months video blog actor Andy Taylor explains.
