Belbin Team Roles
I’ve put together the promised presentation on Belbin Team Roles. You are likely to prefer playing 2 or 3 of the 9 roles. Each role adds essential activities to a team and carries with it a downside. The Shaper asks probing questions, but can be a pain. The Team Player keeps the group together but can’t make tough calls. And so on.
The Belbin provides the words and labels to what many of us intuited. And it reminds you to hunt down the team members who drive you scatty because they are so unlike you. You need them badly to do what you don’t like doing!
The presentation is on slideshare. It runs well in Powerpoint. On OpenOffice and Slideshare, one or two slides are distorted.
