Belbin - Team-role Profiling The Belbin team role profiling tool is an assement of an individuals strengths and allowable weaknesses. What is a team role? A team role as defined by Dr Meredith Belbin is: A tendency to behave, contribute and interrelate with others in a particular way. Belbin team roles describe a pattern of behaviour that characterises one person's behaviour in relationship to another when studying the success of a team. The value of this lies in enabling an individual or team to benefit from self-knowledge and adjust according to the demands being made by the external situation What is an Allowable Weakness? Sometimes strength in one role has to be bought at the cost of what might be seen as a weakness in another context. For example, a person whose preferred team role is Monitor Evaluator is likely to be objective, impartial and good at carefully weighing up all possibilities to make the right decision. Yet someone with these strengths may well come across as being unenthusiastic or even boring. Any failure to inspire is apt to obscure the true strengths of a Monitor Evaluator. That weakness can be reckoned the price that necessarily has to be paid for the strength and in this sense it is termed Allowable How we can help? We will asses the people within your team, explain to them what it all means and then run a series of developmental tasks that will allow individuals to see their strengths, and allowable weaknesses at play. Through this new awareness they can get feedback, make self-imposed adjustments to their group behaviour, and celebrate their group strengths. From the other persons perspective, just knowing why others 'do the strange things they do' is an eye opener and gives people the insight that allows for greater understanding and improved team dialogue.
