MAXIMIZING TEAM ROLES FOR MORE EFFECTIVE TEAM PERFORMANCE

After many years of research into behavior and performance in the workplace, British researcher and theorist Dr. Meredith Belbin identified nine key types of behavior, called the nine Team Roles. Using this data he was able to predict with 86% certainty how a team would perform in business simulations.

The most successful teams in his research studies had all of the Team Role behaviors present.

As in the engineering field there is a common language of understanding, Belbin Team Roles gives a framework and a common language by which we can better understand team dynamics and how to use team roles to achieve more effective team performance.

This session will cover:

  • The value of Inclusive Team Leadership
  •  Belbin Team Roles: Theory, research and validity
  •  Nine Team Roles and what Preferred Roles are
  • Discovery of how and when you are most (and least) useful to a team
  • The Belbin language and how to use this vocabulary in a non-threatening manner

Attendees will also participate in a Team Mapping Exercise. Each table will act as a “team,” and based on the Team Role makeup, they will analyze their team strengths and potential areas for concerns. With the diagnosis, they will determine how to navigate this team for better project outcomes.

Those who attend should expect to leave with the following:

  • Insight into how to build more effective teams
  • Why the absence of certain team roles is detrimental to team performance
  • How your own personal style has impact on the team
  • A better appreciation of why effective teams require the diversity of all the team roles

Workshop includes your FREE personal Team Role Assessment (a strong people-oriented tool that helps increase your team effectiveness) with analysis AND exercises for real life application.
