Rewiring Workplaces: Team Coaching – it’s not just another team building exercise

In this webinar, Lori will host a conversation with Carrie Abner and Joel DiGirolamo, two leading voices in the fast growing world of team coaching. They will discuss the different types of team interventions and why team coaching is such a fast-growing and impactful choice for organisations.

Time is 23 January 2023 at 4-5pm UK time (UTC)

The aim of this webinar is to help clarify the differences between different types of team interventions, drawing distinctions between team coaching, team building, facilitation and other approaches. This will serve coaches to understand different approaches they can take and also help those who hire practitioners to serve their teams.

The conversation will cover these points:

  • How team coaching is advancing as a profession and adding value to organizations.
  • What research on team coaching has shown is important to build high performing teams.
  • Why team coaching seems to be taking off so quickly in the world right now. 
  • What is the difference between team building, team training, team consulting, team mentoring, team facilitation, and team coaching. And why we should care about those differences. 
  • What organizations need to know and look for when they are buying services to support their teams. 
  • How the International Coaching Federation (ICF) is working to advance team coaching practice through the development of the Team Coaching Competencies and a new team coaching certification program.
