Turn Belbin theory into practical business outcomes


Four years ago we developed a one-day session that would help HR, L&D and managers turn the Belbin theory in to action. Turn it from a "I've done that" to a "I use that."




We now have a session that will give you all the theory you need, alongside the practical stuff - exercises and ideas on how to use the language of Belbin in a practical way, everyday, in the workplace.









What the Session Covers:  



We start off with some theory, but not too much. It's important that you understand that there is research behind the theory, but we won't go in to depth (for depth, the Accreditation Course is for you). After going through the 9 Team Roles, and giving you practical ideas on how you can present them to a team, we will spend time going through the Belbin Reports, so that you know what they are saying, and how to use each page.

Then we look at using Belbin with teams - plenty of time is spent on exercises so that you could happily run a team session the very next day! The focus then switches to relationships within the team, and how to maximise these strengths, whilst understanding the potential conflicts. One exercise looks at how a manager can get the most out of the individuals in their team. We end the day looking at how to use Belbin with project teams - using exercises that you can re-use.



Throughout the session we give you insights of how other companies, world-wide, have used Belbin - giving you   ideas of how you can replicate their successes.

It's a full day to say the least! All the exercises are available for you to download from a password protected area of the website after the session, and all the slides used are there for you too.



Who should attend?


Anyone who is looking for a workplace tool that will enable them to understand the strengths and weaknesses of individuals and teams! It could be that you have used Belbin before, but are self-taught and want to know more, including how to turn the Belbin theory into practical outcomes.


The session is also great for those of you who would like to go away armed with session ideas and a good understanding of the Belbin Reports and application, and who may be looking at ways to enhance the way they manage people/help people to manage.


In summary, by the end of the session you will:  

  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of each of the Belbin Team Roles;
  • Have gained practical knowledge of how to use the Belbin Reports to bring about business improvements;
  • Understand how to use Belbin to enhance both individual and team performance;
  • Be able to replicate exercises and feel confident running your own Belbin session.

And you will also leave with:

  • A resource pack (including slides and handouts) - to help you implement your learning when back at work;
  • Your own full Belbin Report (to be completed prior to the event);
  • A 10% discount card to use for future Belbin purchases - valid for 3 months;
  • Exercises that can be replicated back in the workplace;
  • A certificate of attendance.

After the training...

"Since returning to the office I ran a session with one of the project teams which went really well. I used the Belbin Circle exercise so that it became obvious where the gaps were, and we used the action plan to detail how we overcome this. Also, we looked at the balance between positive and negative observations which gave some really good insight into the impact people's behaviours were having on others. Since the first session was so successful I plan to hold another one with another project team in a couple of weeks time".


R&D Manager

After the training...

"You have helped me enormously in looking at what our next steps need to be in [Company X].  You all have such passion for the product and the Belbin philosophy which is very apparent in your style, enthusiasm and delivery… That made such a difference."

Head of HR.

After the training...

"Thank you so much for an inspirational day yesterday - I am well and truly buzzing this morning. Practically on fire! As always after wonderful motivational events I have got through loads of work, which is great. You all glowed with the joy of great partnership working - thank you again for a brilliant day."


After the training...

"I just wanted to say – wow and thanks for such an amazing day.  I learnt much more than I had anticipated, not just about Belbin but about myself and how successful I can be not just as an individual but as an integral part of the L&D team both locally and globally."
