How to Form a Team

In many organisations, teams are well-established in set locations with defined job descriptions and roles. However, in Belbin terms, it can be beneficial to assemble a team to meet a specific challenge – for example, when beginning a new project or introducing change.

Some just have a greater perception than others of how they behave and how their behaviours are perceived and understood. Whatever the situation, this guide demonstrates how Belbin reports can be fed back in order to maximise an individual’s contribution.
