Are you playing to your strengths in your current team? How do others perceive your contribution? Want to find out?

Science and technology are usually team efforts. Postdocs work with students, peers and academics. Moving into fellowships our team roles become those of manager and leader. Understanding how you can best play to your innate preferences in a team can help boost your productivity and improve team relationships. We will use the tried and tested Belbin system to identify your personal team preferences and explore how different types of team members interact. We will look at how to build, motivate and keep the peace in teams.

Key areas

  • Your specific Belbin team role preference indicating how you work in teams
  • Identifying those you need around you to build different types of ventures
  • How to motivate and lead a team
  • Thinking about dealing with conflict within a team

Each participant will receive their own personalised Belbin report after a short electronic questionnaire and this will encompass feedback from six observers who you select. This MUST be brought to the course in either printed or electronic format.

Because delegates must start Belbin prior to the course, there is a fee of £50 for cancellations made 15 days prior to the course, and a £100 charge will be levied from the delegate’s department if a cancellation is made less than 10 working days before the course start date.

Further information: Priority for this course will be given to fellows.
For this programme, you can request to be added to our waiting list if the programme dates are listed as "fully booked".
