Belbin Team/Group reports

Finding out how individuals prefer to behave in the workplace is the first step. But very few of us work in isolation. Discovering how those we work with see and value our behaviour is next. The workplace tends to comprise of teams which are put together depending on job function - ie the 'Marketing Team', or depending on the work that needs to be done - sometimes called 'Project Teams'.

What constitutes a TEAM?

PL Pete Small

There is much debate on what 'makes a team'. But what are the key factors? Meredith Belbin's research and experience have shown that size and selection are critical.

If there are too many people in a team then roles and behaviours start to overlap causing problems. Too large a team can lead to conformism and focus on a single leader. A smaller team ensures that each voice and contribution is heard and valued.

A team should be put together for a specific purpose. Each team member should be chosen to ensure that the correct balance of skill and behaviour is achieved.

Meredith Belbin's original research culminated in his team being able to predict a team's performance based solely on each individuals behavioural contribution. The most successful teams comprised a balance of Team Role behaviour.

Belbin TEAM/GROUP REPORTS

We would strongly recommend attending one of our 'How to...' sessions to ensure that you get the most out of the Belbin Team/Group reports.

To understand the Team Role composition of a team, we would recommend using a Belbin Team/Group Report. Once the individuals have completed their Self-Perception Inventory and Observer Assessments, we can take all the data and produce the following report:

Overview of Team/Group Composition
Team0

This report shows Team Roles in order from most prominent (column 1) to least (column 9)
for each person in the team/group. For each individual, the first line shown denotes views
from Self‐Perception; the second shows combined Observer views and the third shows the
overall composition.

Team Contributions
Team1

Particular individuals will need to be brought in at the right time if the team is to be fully
effective. This report offers suggestions as to who should take on the work of each Team
Role within the team. Some roles are shared; some individuals are suggested to play more
than one role. This report is only available for up to 15 individuals.

Team Role Circle
Team2

This report shows the top two Team Role contributions for each team/group member by
showing their initials in the relevant segment of the circle (a key of team/group members is
provided below). The positioning of an individual's initials within a particular segment has
no significance. This report is only available for up to 15 individuals.

Individuals in the Team/Group
Team3

This bar graph shows the percentile score for the strongest individual in the team/group for
a given Team Role, compared with the team/group's average percentile score for that role.
The further apart the individual and team/group average scores are for any Team Role, the
greater is the team/group's dependence on one person to fulfil the role in question.

Strong Examples of Team Roles
Team4

This report shows strong examples of Team Roles in the team/group in alphabetical order. A
strong example of a Team Role is someone who has a clear idea of his or her Team Role
preferences. If Observers have been added, a strong example has a good level of agreement
between Self‐Perception and Observer views and displays considerably more positive than
negative behaviours for that role.

Team Role Averages
Team5

This report shows the team/group average for each Team Role. The information below
describes the possible positive and negative implications of the Team Role "culture".

Overall Observer Responses
Team6

When observers complete an Observer Assessment, they can tick or double‐tick adjectives
which apply to a particular individual. This report accumulates the ticks received for each
word for all team/group members, in descending order. Words which denote associated
Team Role weaknesses are shown in italics.

Please take time to read through these report pages and decide which elements you think would be most appropriate for the team. Please be aware that some individuals may feature more prominently in the report than others do, and that sensitive issues may arise.
