Belbin in Cultures
Christer B Jansson, Partner, Malta, Member
Hi I am involved with Belbin in Sweden. It works very well all over the world. What roles are preferred in a country, if I generalize, depends on the culture in the country.
- In Sweden we prefer Coordinator behavior in our managers.
- I have a strong Shaper behavior and am more liked for it in the USA than in Sweden, where I need to control it much more.
- In Hong Kong a Specialist is regarded high as they value knowledge very high.
But all roles are important and have an important role to play in any team.
