Team bonding vs team building vs team development – There is a difference
The confusion between team bonding and team building
Team bonding or team building; what does that mean exactly? When potential clients come to us, they always say they are looking for a “team building program”. However, they often don’t know what they don’t know. To ensure we meet the needs of our clients, we begin all conversations with a Discovery Assessment. This assessment allows us to uncover what challenges they are facing and what outcomes they are looking for.
We categorize “team building” programs into three buckets:
1st level – Team Bonding
2nd level – Team Building
3 rd level – Team Development
While each bucket serves a specific and very useful purpose, it’s important to know what each program is best suited for.
