Managers must understand that people bring more than their skills and experience to a team; they bring their personalities as well. Utilising people’s behavioural strengths to create a balanced team adds immensely to both group and personal performance.

This programme dramatises Dr Meredith Belbin’s team-role theory, and explains how to identify nine key team roles for a balanced team. In true-to-life scenarios, it shows that although each team member has a functional role they also have a team role and these are critical to the team’s success. Each of the nine roles is defined and shown in action.

Using a clearly explained structure, Dr Belbin reveals how teams with fewer members may need people to perform dual roles. He shows how behavioural skills can be assessed and how, with care, teams can be constructed that take account of hierarchies as well as personal interaction.
