The graph above shows your Team Roles in order of preference. Some people have an even spread ofTeam Roles whilst others may have one or two very high and very low Team Roles. An individual doesnot necessarily show all nine Team Role behaviours.

This graph is based solely on your views. In addition to analysing your own views, you can ask others tocomplete Observer Assessments to provide feedback about the Team Role behaviours they observe inyou. This is useful because Team Role contributions are about the way others see us and work with us,as well as the way we perceive ourselves.

Team Role Feedback

SPI completed on 25-Feb-2022© BELBIN 2011 Page 5 Report printed on 25-Feb-2022

This report offers guidance and advice on the best way to manage your behaviour at work and makethe most of your Team Role contributions. The applicability of the advice may vary depending on thestage of your career and your current working situation.

This report is based upon your Self-Perception only.

You appear to have a disposition towards managerial liaison work, as well as a concern foraccuracy and attention to detail. As such, you could be well-placed to act as the public advocate ofquality, encouraging others to aspire to - and maintain - high standards.

If you are a manager, take a close interest in the jobs of those who work for you. Pay attention toexactly how things have been done without interfering or implying superior knowledge. If you findfault with what is being practised, you may achieve the desired results merely by posing one ortwo well-formulated questions. Always make yourself available as someone to whom others mayturn to talk about key job issues.

When dealing with either your manager or colleagues, it may be advisable for you to avoiddwelling for too long on minor matters. Instead, you should project yourself as someone whobelieves that attention to detail as a general principle offers competitive advantage. Your mission isto communicate this outlook to all with whom you associate. You should be able to do so byreference to personal example and without resorting to rank or status. However, by bringing youractions and public words in line with each other you will command added respect.

Your working style should be one of taking a broad view and then getting down to the detail.

You could also focus on cultivating your ability for efficient planning and organisation. One of themost effective ways to establish your reputation is by hard work. If you can develop a practical wayof working, not only are you likely to benefit, but you may well find others following your example.

On a final note, you need to take account of the role for which you are least suited. You do notappear to have the characteristics of someone who obtains results by driving others forward. If youcan work in harmony with someone who has these complementary qualities, your performance islikely to improve.

Glossary of Terms

Self-Perception Inventory (SPI)The Self-Perception Inventory is the questionnaire an individual completes to ascertain his or her TeamRoles. The questionnaire consists of eight sections, with each section containing ten items. The individualis asked to allocate ten marks per section to those statements which best reflect his or her working styles.

Observer Assessment (OA)The Observer Assessment is the questionnaire completed by people who know the Self-Perceptioncandidate well. We recommend that observers are chosen from among those who have worked with theindividual closely and recently and within the same context (e.g. within the same team), since Team Rolebehaviours can change over time and in different situations, offering advice on managing this.

Team Role StrengthThese are the positive characteristics or behaviours associated with a particular Team Role.

Team Role WeaknessThis is the flipside of a strength: negative behaviour which can be displayed as the result of a particularTeam Role contribution. If someone is playing a particular Team Role well and their strengths outweightheir weaknesses in the role, it is called an “Allowable weakness”. Weaknesses become ‐“non allowable” iftaken to extreme or if the associated Team Role strength is not displayed.

PercentilesA percentile is a way of measuring your position in relation to others (the rest of the population). If a groupof people take a test and receive scores, these can be distributed from highest to lowest and anindividual’s score can be judged in relation to the scores of others. If a person’s score is in the 80thpercentile, this indicates that 20% of people have scored more highly for this measure.

PercentagesPercentages represent a proportion of the whole. If you take an aptitude test and score 70 marks out of apossible 100, your score is 70%.

Strong example of a Team RoleA strong example is someone who appears to play a particular Team Role to especially good effect. Toqualify as a strong example of a particular Team Role, someone needs to be in the 80th percentile for thatTeam Role according to their Self-Perception. Once observer assessments are added, their feedback isalso taken into account to determine whether or not someone qualifies as a strong example.

Points DroppedSome items in the Self-Perception Inventory pertain to claims about oneself rather than a valid Team Rolecontribution. If you have made more claims than 90% of the population, your Team Role feedback willtake this into consideration.
