In these uncertain times, we’re all trying to figure out what to do next.

When it comes down to it, what matters is how we behave, how we organise ourselves and how we communicate with one another.

Like co‐located teams, virtual teams need a balance of Team Roles in order to succeed. The exact combination required – and when they should be added to the mix – will vary depending on what the team is required to do. But it is important to remember that virtual teamworking may come more easily to some than to others, and that some Team Role contributions rely more heavily on visual cues which may be absent in virtual teamworking. 

Now is the ideal time to take a moment to find out your Belbin Team Role strengths and weaknesses, and discover how you can use them.
