Belbin’s Team Roles Model is a theory that was developed by John Belbin in the 1960s. It is a set of four roles that are meant to be used in teams, and it is based on the idea of maximizing individual potential. Action-oriented roles are those who focus on taking action and achieving goals. They are typically more competitive, have more energy, and think outside of the box. They also tend to be less receptive to feedback, which can make them difficult to work with at times. This model can help us understand what type of people we should recruit for our team and how we should manage those people as well as how they should be managed themselves.
