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 video dramatises Dr Meredith Belbin's team-role theory, and explains how to identify nine key team roles for a balanced team. It shows that although each team member in an example team has a functional role in, for example, marketing in accounts, they also have team roles. These are critical to the team's success. Each of the nine roles is defined and shown in action.
Belbin explains that 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.
