"Simply putting together a number of people and expecting them to work as a team is not enough."

At Belbin, our job is to help you get the most from your teams.

What makes an effective team?

  • A team should be put together to achieve a business outcome – it needs a purpose
  • A team is put together for a specific purpose, against which it can be measured.
  • A team takes collective responsibility to achieve the agreed outcome.
  • Team members should be chosen for what they can contribute, not their job title
  • Teams are put together to solve complex issues, not to massage egos.
  • There should be behavioural diversity within the team to maximise its effectiveness.
  • A team should be limited in size and, ideally, be even in number
  • An even number means that no one person has the casting vote, ensuring that teams are required to reach consensus. Too many people create chaos; too few, exhaustion.
  • A team should be dynamic and respond to its external environment
  • A team is not an island. It should be responsive to the needs of the organisation, and the members should contribute as and when required.

Let us help you make the most of your teams

Belbin is the gold standard in developing high-performing teams. We have worked with – and empowered – teams across the globe, from SMEs to multinational corporations.

We can help you to understand the individuals in your teams, identifying where their strengths and possible weaknesses lie. Using Belbin in your organisation will help you bring the right people together to form a team, ensuring that it is as successful as it can be in achieving its aims.

There are many ways we can work together

  • You can purchase the Belbin Individual and Team Reports and introduce your team/s to the language of Belbin.
  • Or, we can help by running a Team Workshop for you. This can be face to face, or virtual. The workshop may be for 2-hours or 2-days!
  • If you would like to have the knowledge to run your own Team Workshops with confidence, join one of our training courses - be it 'A Practical Day of Belbin or the 'Belbin Accreditation Course'.
  • We can also provide bespoke webinars if you would like your team/organisation to understand more about the theory of Belbin and how it can be used.

You may be surprised to discover how cost-effective these options are!

“Business leaders view most profiling with a degree of skepticism, so we needed something with credibility in a business world, and Belbin fitted this need. Working with Belbin has been easy, they are just at the end of the phone so this makes life really easy for us, and makes us look professional when we are presenting the results to a client. We use Belbin with every client, and we’ve also used it in workshops, and this actually won us one of our largest clients to date! Quite simply, Belbin is easy, quick and interesting for clients”
