Team building, team coaching: what is it?

Team coaching and team building is the support of a team in its entirety with a goal of collective success and collective growth.

Team coaching vs team building?

Team coaching is a long-term team support (several sessions during 3, 6 months or 1 year)
Team building is a short intervention (between 1 and 3 days)

Act on 2 main levers that generate excellence

Dynamics : teams learn to work together, in collective intelligence, gather around values, common objectives, make a commitment on decisions taken collectively.
cohesion and cooperation:
moments of sharing around very important topics, the true meeting between people and the regulation of the disagreements develop cohesion and cooperation

Choose your main goal of your team coaching /building (and explore the 4 dimensions)

Choose if you want to mainly work on:

  • an operational topic, ie: how to improve a process, better communicate
  • the regulation of relationships, ie: better work together, know how to solve disagreement, new functioning mode
  • training: development of new skills together
  • vision: co-elaboration of vision, mission, values, ambition

What are the different steps of a team coaching / building?

 First Step: meeting and exploration

Meeting with the manager and HR to:
– share information about context and goals of the support
– define the main dimension of the support (operation, regulation, training or vision)
– give information and answer questions

Second Step: Co-elaboration of the steps and dynamics of the team coaching / building

– define the objectives, the content of the different steps, their timing and their dynamics (playful, creative, more conventional)
– identify the roles of the coach and the roles of the leader
– speak about the key factors of a team coaching / building

Third Step: Team coaching / building

– the team coaching / building follows the different steps identified in step 2

Fourth Step: Feedbacks

– for team coaching: frequent and regular feedback with the
– for team building: feedback just after and 1 month after the
