How TCM Works

Four straightforward steps.

Step 1: Each Team Member Completes an Individual Belbin Report (DIY)

Belbin® Team Role reports are a valuable tool for exploring an individual’s collaborative strengths and weaknesses. The report helps to raise self-awareness and increase personal effectiveness.

To receive a Belbin report, an individual first completes a self-assessment. That person then invites four to six of their colleagues to complete an observer assessment. The results of the self-assessment and observer assessment are compiled into a final report. Each team member will receive their own individual report.

Step 2: A Team Collaboration Map is Compiled and Provided​

Once all team members have completed their report, a Team Collaboration Map will be created and provided to the team. The TCM will enable the team to see, at a glance, how each member rated against all nine of the Belbin Team Roles. It will also allow the team to identify any gaps or surpluses in the Belbin Team Roles.
