Multiple Belbin Roles in/by a Single Person is Possible
Jaap de Jonge, Management Consultant, Netherlands
Belbin Roles are what the word says: roles a person performs in a team. They are not traits of a person, or at least they don't have to be. Remember it's all about ensuring that all necessary roles are actually present and being performed in a team.
On the other hand, although you don't need to be a plant-like (creative) person to assume the role of plant, obviously it may help to pick creative people for this role, because they are good at it.
And if a lot of creativity is required in the team, you might decide to have more than one person performing the plant role.
In small teams it's quite common that one person assumes two or three or even more roles in the team. Indeed, depending on the personality, for some people it may be easier than for others to assume different or several roles at the same time.
