How Many Teamroles....
Christer B Jansson, Partner, Malta
Hi I am Belbin in Sweden since 1991 and Malta 2010 as well and have worked with Meridith since then I will try to answer as properly as I can.
A Teamrole is defined as your way to behave, contribute, interrelate to others. He found nine different stereotypes and you have all of them and can use all of them. Through life, experiences, motivation, personality etc people have developed 2 or 3 team roles that are your strong suit and you perform very well in these roles.
All combinations exist, but some are more unusual than others.
Forced by your strong roles you will suffer role stress.
The strong roles you have may change order due to different teams you participate in. In one team you may be only using one role and in another all three you are capable of.
Yes you can double up with some roles and some roles not. The social roles like Team Worker, Coordinator and Resource Investigators will be no problem. The rest I need more space to talk about. .
