The Importance of Team Roles for Individual and Organizational Effectiveness

“A team is not a bunch of people with job titles, but a congregation of individuals, each of whom has a role which is understood by other members. Members of a team seek out certain roles and they perform most effectively in the ones that are most natural to them.”

Dr. R.M. Belbin

Truly an “eye-opener...” It’s all about managing self and understanding others, as opposed to being solely a subject
matter/skills expert...
As a leader, I now understand not only the what, but the how AND we can use this stuff immediately. We discovered things we could not have known, had we not used Belbin. The Team Map was a real surprise!
