Belbin Team Report can be used to help with new teams, existing teams or cross-functional teams. Great at starting team conversations and creating high performing teams.





We may understand our own Belbin Team Role contributions, but this is of limited use if we don't share that information with others. To build and manage great teams, team members need to understand, recognise and maximise the behavioural strengths of others, whilst managing and containing the associated weaknesses. Once you have completed the Self-Perception Inventory and (hopefully) received feedback from others (using the Observer Assessments) how can you transition from individual to team development?


A Belbin Team Report is the next step.



This report isn't there as a definitive document - after all, we have no idea what type of team you are working with, the objectives, time-scales, hierarchy etc. It is a tool with which to initiate meaningful, productive conversations and to start the team on the journey of becoming as great as it can be.

The Belbin Team Report assesses how a group of individuals will work together as a team, detailing who will take on which role within the team, and where there may be gaps or overlaps in behavioural contributions.


What can I use the Team Report for?






  • Helping to form a new team
  • Diagnosing the reasons for an underperforming team
  • Putting together a project team
  • Exploring the strengths and weaknesses of an existing team
  • Checking that each team member is being used to his/her full potential
  • Ensuring that the right person is being used for the each team task
  • Exploring the Team Role culture of the team or group
  • Identifying the gaps within a team, with a view to recruiting a new team member






If the team have all used the Observer Assessment element of the Belbin Individual Report, the Belbin Team Report is made up of 7 pages of conversation starters!




What does each page say?






  • Overview of Team Composition: Ideal for the facilitator - has a précis of everyone's data in one report. 
  • Team Contributions: Who is best placed to play each of the nine Belbin Team Roles within the team? Some people may appear two or three times, others only once, but everyone will be mentioned. If there is a Team Role void - i.e. no-one shows a tendency towards a particular Team Role, the gap will be announced. This page is produced for a maximum of 15 team members.
  • Team Role Circle: A cheat's guide to the exercise that can be found here: Team Role Circle Exercise. This page is produced for a maximum of 15 team members.
  • Individuals in the Team: Shows the team's average score for a Team Role against that of the highest-scoring individual, to show how dependent the team might be on one particular individual to play that role. Great for succession planning!
  • Strong Examples of Team Roles: Highlights those who don't just have a strength in a particular Team Role, but they show it in abundance and play it to best advantage.
  • Team Role Averages: The averages for the team, along with a statement regarding the potential culture - this can be run for teams/departments/organisations... The potential uses are endless.
  • Overall Observer Responses: An accumulation of all the Observer Words that have been ticked for that group of individuals. If you were looking to put together a vision/mission statement, this is a great place to start!
































One word of caution: We do not recommend that the Belbin Team Report is handed out to each team member. It is there as a guide for the facilitator, and needs to be understood before it is used. The Belbin Team Report comes with a useful guide which highlights some potentially sensitive areas for feedback. 
















If you are unsure on how to get the most out of the Belbin Team Report, or any of the Belbin Reports, come along to a Introduction to Belbin Session, or become Belbin Accredited.
