Is it just me, or has ‘teamcoaching’ taken over as a buzzword, when really what we mean is ‘teambuilding’ or vice versa? We get asked to deliver a lot of teamcoaching and teambuilding assignments. It’s an area of work where I derive great satisfaction.
Why? Because the results are typically immediate:
- Improved colleague understanding and appreciation of each other
- Willingness to work through issues and problems
- Pride in mutual success
The independent coach can facilitate discussion, bring new perspectives and shine a light in dark corners.
I’ve had some interesting conversations recently about the difference between teambuilding events and teamcoaching.
So, what do I think is the difference? I’d love to hear your viewpoint too.
