Recently I've got familiar with the Belbin Roles concept. It seemed to be weird that I should let people be aware of their roles, or even about my expectations, because the Belbin roles are rather personality qualities than tasks the people will do. Say, a person took part in the Belbin questionnaire, we understood that he has propensity to behave like a Teamworker or an Implementer, and I'll say
OK, now we are aware of you nature, please behave like an Implementer this time.
Does it work this way? I mean, I don't think people are conscious of their roles at any given time.
I also came across another source stating that it's better to not reveal the roles, so people are not bounded within them. (i haven't find it now, unfortunately)
So I will appreciate any real example of working with the Belbin Roles. Thanks.
