Diversity Builder uses the latest technologies available coupled with relevant and impactful experiential learning activities that promote analytical thinking and innovative problem-solving.

This live training class may be facilitated live via webinar or in-person (onsite) at your organization’s location.

Difference Between Team Bonding and Team Building

What is the difference between team building and team bonding?  Team building positions teams to develop new skills to better understand how colleagues work best. It teaches the group how to work together as a high-performing entity and elevate each other’s strengths. Team bonding usually involves fun or challenging external activities (like escape rooms or a ropes course)  to bring teams together through competitions, shared learning, or events that require team members to rely on each other and build trust.

Approaching Training through a DE&I Lens

Diversity Builder trainers approach the team building workshop using a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) lens with the goal of achieving team belonging within organizations. The trainer develops learning opportunities for individual team members to build relationships and connect across differences in identities and lived experiences. Learning activities include experiential exercises that help employees and managers seek to understand differences in perspectives and build trust and connection. Understanding that a team’s strengths are strongly tied to their differences and viewpoints is key to building thriving small teams. Creating a safe space and workplace of psychological safety are essential components of successful outcomes. In Team Building Training for managers, the trainer will emphasize the role the manager has in supporting and helping to develop a culture of inclusion. Strategies are shared and skill-building exercises are facilitated by the trainer.

Team Building Course Description:

This course provides essential team building concepts and tools required to optimize team performance and deliver breakthrough results. Core focus concepts facilitated within this course include establishing, building, and restoring trust among team members, recognizing cultural dynamics, utilizing effective communication skills, understanding motivation techniques, building collaboration strategies, and aligning team members with shared goals.
