5.0 out of 5 stars Practical team building
Team Roles at Work builds on Dr Belbins 1st book Management Teams. This book is far more useful in terms of the practical application of the theory - how will a shaper get on with a team-worker boss? Why do some see their behaviour differently to their colleagues? How can teams manage themselves?

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical team building, 5 Aug. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Team Roles at Work (Paperback)
Team Roles at Work builds on Dr Belbins 1st book Management Teams. This book is far more useful in terms of the practical application of the theory - how will a shaper get on with a team-worker boss? Why do some see their behaviour differently to their colleagues? How can teams manage themselves?
This book also then looks at placement, and the importance of suitability for a role.
If you want to apply the theory, this is the book that will help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Team Roles at Work... Belbin reviewed, 14 Dec. 2010

This review is from: Team Roles at Work (Paperback)
Team Roles at Work

This is a worthy title to read for anyone whether in the private, public or charitable sectors, looking for tried and trusted methods to adopt when looking at team roles in a working environment. Belbin clearly and thoughtfully takes the reader through, in a dozen chapters, aspects of his methodologies in relation to, for example, eligibility versus suitability and interpersonal chemistry in the workplace.

Why did I buy it? Well, I'm undertaking a three-year University course in Christian Ministry and one of the second-year modules covers the dynamics of team ministry within a church setting and how this particular theorist can be, and is, applied both practically and theologically to team roles and their outworking in the church's ministry, worship, preaching and pastoral care. I have found him to be easily adaptable to this particular situation and would recommend this book to other churches considering a different perspective, but one readily in tune with a Christian outlook/outreach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 11 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Team Roles at Work (Paperback)
Belbin's theories realy do stand the test of time. "Team Roles at Work" has been updated to make it even more relevant to today's ever changing workplace. As a keen advocate of Belbin's Team Role theory, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I use the theory regularly in Learning & Development sessions and it helps encourage real understanding and improved working relationships.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mainly a background to the Team Roles, 15 April 2013

This review is from: Team Roles at Work (Paperback)
I thouroughly enjoyed this book, excellently written and easy to understand - puts the whole concpet in context.
However, I would like to see more of what to do with the team roles and using team roles to overcome challanges.
