A fun and highly practical Belbin team building event to improve team performance
Our Belbin expert provides a real understanding of your team dynamics, in a half-day or one-day workshop.

The Belbin Team Roles (Team Types) Questionnaire is widely used today to help increase the ultimate performance of teams. It is based on extensive research undertaken by Dr. Meredith Belbin at Henley Management College. During this research, it became evident that teams comprising a balance of mixed team roles outperform teams without this balance.

At KSL Training, we have a number of Accredited Belbin Facilitators, who run Belbin team building events, for companies across the UK. During these half-day or one-day workshops, participants complete the Belbin Questionnaire. Each of the nine Belbin Team Roles (Types) are then explained in an interactive and fun way, to help improve team performance.

Belbin Team Roles Workshop

Belbin Accredited logoIf you want your team to gain some initial insights into their preferred Team Roles and how that affects the way the team works, this is the team building event for you.

As with all our team building events, we will design the right format for you and your team. However, to provide you with some idea of the type of team event we can offer using the online Belbin Questionnaire, we list an outline of an example workshop below:

  • A better understanding of each other, and their preferred roles

The Belbin Questionnaire:

As part of a facilitated Belbin team building event, we ask all participants to complete the online Belbin Team Roles Questionnaire. This ensures accurate self insights can be conveyed on the day.

The Belbin Questionnaire takes about 20 minutes to complete online, with no right or wrong answers. It is designed to highlight the team role each team member takes within a team and the associated behaviours that they are likely to display with the role.

The questionnaire presents the participant with a choice of behaviours that are displayed within a team and the participant has to decide which behaviour best describes themselves whilst at work. Once the team member has completed the questionnaire, an automated report will be produced for self review.

The Belbin Reports

There are a number of options offered from the computer generated Belbin Team Roles profile reports which you may like to consider purchasing prior to your team building event. We list below some of the more popular reports but are happy to advise on other reports should these not suit your overall goal:

  • Self Perception Inventory: As the name suggests, this report is compiled on the individual’s perception of how they work within a team and their preferred clusters of behaviour.
  • Self and Observer Assessment: This report is compiled based on the individual’s self perception of how they work in a team along with up to six colleague’s observations. Can be very helpful in raising individual’s self awareness and self esteem when managed effectively.
  • Team Report: This Belbin Team Roles Report is very useful in helping the manager of the team understand the whole of the team dynamics and predicts how the team will work together. Ideal for using with a new team to help the manager identify the steps he/she may need to take to enhance the team’s overall effectiveness.
  • Counselling Report: This is an ideal report for managers wanting to receive feedback and advice on adopting the most appropriate management style that will best fit with their team role strengths and allowable weaknesses. The report is based on the participant’s top two preferred team roles.

Met everyone of my targets – personally and for the team.
Phil Jeremiah, Axiom*


Really good exercises to have some practical/visual examples of what is being said. Dynamic/engaging presentation and delivery.
Jeremy Birch, Change Agent, Axiom*


For someone who pours scorn on such training, this was both very useful and enjoyable. John was a professional and personable facilitator, who managed the day very well.
