The Belbin test is made up of two parts - the Self-Perception Inventory and the Observer Assessments.
After you complete your Self-Perception Inventory online (it takes 15 to 20 minutes) you'll receive a Belbin Individual Report based on this data. This will give you an insight in to the Team Role behaviors you see in yourself.
Once you have your Self-Perception Report, you then request feedback from those that know you well at work - colleagues, managers and reports - to add their Observer Assessments, for free. This gives you an indication on the Team Role behaviours others see and value.
Once your requested Observers have provided their feedback this is combined with your self-view and an updated, Belbin Individual report will be emailed to you.
The complete Belbin Individual report presents your Team Role Profile, along with a wealth of personalised advice based on decades of research and observations of how people behave in the workplace.
We'll provide advice on the best ways to make your contributions to the team, on your most suited working styles and even make suggestions on work environments which may particularly suit you.
In completing your Belbin test, you'll have a greater understanding of your strengths, which leads to more effective communication between you and your team, and your manager.
You can complete your Self-Perception Inventory here, on the Belbin website, whenever you like.
There is a cost - because there's no such thing as a legal 'free Belbin test'. For an individual, the cost is £39 + VAT but don't worry - if you fill in the form below, we'll send you a discount code. If you have been asked to complete the Belbin questionnaire as part of a course, please provide as much detail as possible so we can get in touch with your university / lecturer.
You can view a sample Belbin Individual report here.
Just to clarify - If you're looking for a Belbin scoring sheet that is marked by hand, or for an Excel version of the Belbin test, you're looking for something which is illegal to use.
Those outdated versions are still subject to our copyright and Intellectual Property and therefore, are illegal to use. We own the copyright and do not allow our questionnaire, or years of research, to be reproduced in any form. Also beware of other free tests that offer to find out your Team Roles. Always do your research. We have not endorsed or licensed any other test.
These illegal versions of the Belbin tests may not include all the Belbin Team Roles, don't have the all important Observer input and you miss out on the Belbin Team Role feedback which has been developed through decades of helping people like yourself.
If you're looking to use anything which is downloaded, photocopied or accessed through a website other than here at Belbin.com, you're not going to receive the real, full Belbin experience and won't get to know yourself the way that millions of others across the world have.
Please add as much information as possible as we may be able to offer your university / college a discounted rate.
By completing the form you are agreeing to receive emails from Belbin HQ, or their global distributors, if appropriate.
