The formation of effective teams is more by good fortune than good judgment….it doesn’t have to be that way! The implementation of Belbin Team Role Theory capitalizes on nine years of intensive research conducted by Meredith Belbin plus over 30 years of successfully implementing Team Role practices in thousands of organizations across the globe. Belbin was able to predict with over 80% certainty which teams would win or lose in his research. The central theme that emerged from his research was that in order to be successful, a team requires the successful implementation of nine distinct Team Roles. How well individuals are able to contribute these roles to the operation of a team can be measured.

In this webinar we will be discussing the nine Team Roles and techniques that can be used to implement their use in your teams. The key learnings you will leave with are:

A thorough understanding of Team Role Theory, explaining the nine roles and providing insights into their use in teams.
A knowledge of how teams have used aided by an examination of mini-case studies
Actions you can take to implement Belbin Team Roles in your team
