Before this course, I thought I would be trying to improve on my weaknesses within a team. After the training, I understand that I should focus more on my strengths and the strengths of other members of the team. This concept and way of thinking is huge for me and will be so important in my career. Thank you for the awesome training.
A must take for all team members.
I can say everyone should take this course as a NAVAIR employee because it not only makes you aware of your talents, but your teammates as well & how working with contrasting roles can be beneficial to team success.

I thoroughly enjoyed your workshop and interacting with my entire team. It really provided insight about other team members and their personality traits/working styles.
I perceive things differently from my team members. Certain traits that I once found ``annoying`` in my team members, I now see those traits as strengths and figure out a way to utilize them. It also allows me to be understanding and empathetic to the fact they don't think like I do...and that's a good thing.
I thought the whole class was well balanced, which is a lot coming from me as I usually hate team exercises in training classes.
The most valuable part was getting to know what others’ roles were and how we all play an important part in the team. I now have a better understanding of the make ups of others and of myself.
I will look for ways to leverage my assets. I will be conscious of how others interact or react to project work and other team members.
DeeDee’s knowledge is exceptional and she related that to our team’s experiences.

The team activities were great. Also, understanding all the team roles was so helpful. I can better understand what motivates my teammates.
I plan to understand strengths and weaknesses of my team, and to work with the team to put together ground rules and conflict resolution.
The Pre-work, personal report, and written descriptions of team roles most resonated with me.
I now have a greater understanding of the strong component of my behavior on team performance.
Gaining knowledge of how team roles feed into personality and behavior was the most valuable.
I will embrace the roles I am most suited for and find appropriate resources for the other roles.

I can now better recognize positive qualities within a person and how to utilize everyone’s strengths in a team environment.
Learning the different personality types was eye opening and helped me understand myself.
This provided good real-world content. Conflict resolution and Project Management resonated.
This provided good understanding of my roles and how to interact with others, depending on my workplace mission.
In my small team, conflict resolution is important for team success!

January 10-11, 2018 – Charleston, SC

Learning and understanding my top Belbin roles and how other people saw/observed/viewed me really helped to validate what I’m doing and the role I currently have and want to have in the future.
I enjoyed all of the training but lining up to our numbers and seeing who has opposites really made the point that we’d have to consciously work on how we interact.
I will feel more confident in my primary roles and look at how I can better perform in my mid roles where my observers rated me higher than I self-rated.
I plan to help team members discover their roles and look to structure people where their strengths can make us more successful.
My team in GA has issues with Team Dynamics. This could help me figure out what is missing.
