Belbin helps an individual appreciate his/her strengths and realise what other’s value as his/her contributions. It provides individuals with a tool to adopt a work style that leverages their strengths thus allowing them to give their best at work. Knowing one’s most and least preferred roles helps individuals make unique contributions and also opens up possibilities of collaboration between team members.
Success in Work pairs is critical as they form the links on which projects and business outcomes are built. Whether it is two colleagues or a manager- subordinate pair, Belbin helps work pairs appreciate the team role chemistry in their work relationship, hence helping them design how they would like to harness each others strengths and work around potential dampners to their relationship.
