“Benne and Sheats’ Group Roles”
The way that people behave in teams varies. Some people are helpful and supportive, others are more concerned with getting the work done, and still others can cause friction, disharmony or discord within the team.
Two influential theorists on group behaviour were Kenneth Benne and Paul Sheats, who wrote a respected article titled “Functional Roles of Group Members” back in the 1940s. In it, they defined 26 different roles that can be played by one or more people within a group.
Benne and Sheats defined three categories of group roles: task roles, personal and social roles, and dysfunctional or individualistic roles.
