Yes, we've attended another HR/Training Exhibition and we're still flabbergasted by how many people are still using an illegal version of Belbin.
For my part, one of my missions - in fact almost an obsession - is to use Belbin to get managers managing people more effectively and it is with this in mind that I would like to share the following:
