Building the Perfect Team
Managers must understand that people bring more than their skills and experience to a team – they bring their personalities as well. Utilizing people’s behavioural strengths to create a balanced team can lead to great things, both in group and personal performance.
This program dramatizes 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 has a functional role, for example marketing or accounting, 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.
