TEAM BUILDING – TEAM ROLES

If you can laugh together,

you can work together.”

 

Robert Orben

”There is no one giant step that does it.

It’s a lot of little steps.”

 

Peter A. Cohen

In 1981, after a decade of team research, Meredith Belbin identified nine important roles played in efficient teams and developed a model to describe them.

Belbin team roles theory started from the fact that when people become aware of their own strengths and abilities, understanding the role to play within a team, they will be more efficient and will better perform in the working environment. Each team member adopts a role based on the competencies and on the roles played by the others; however, it’s possible that the same person to have more roles in accordance to different situations.
