Team roles

The Belbin team roles are used to help create effective and balanced teams.  Few individuals are strong in all of these roles, so ensuring you have a good mix on a team can make a real difference. It also needs to be noted that each role has its own strengths and weakness.

  • Investigator: Communicator, explores opportunities
  • Shaper: Dynamic, good under pressure
  • Plant: Imaginative, problem solver
  • Coordinator: Good team lead, delegates and focuses on goals
  • Specialist: Self-starter, provides key skills
  • Implementer: Reliable, turns ideas into action
