Virtual Teambuilding – Around The World (1D)



If virtual team engagement and other similar online events are to offer value, their inclusion in an overall corporate structure of philosophies, values and practices is critical. The platform, storyline and scenarios also play a crucial part in participant engagement and experience.

Around The World is about the process of supporting a work group to operate in a team-oriented environment that is characterized by such philosophies as shared purpose, shared values, shared vision, shared mission and a performance development system that enables people to grow both personally and professionally.

Every major process following this is designed to specifically draw out important lessons from each stage of the team’s transformation into a high performing team. Here, we can easily incorporate a tee-up for the relevant night activities as well.

How they accumulate profits is by going through a specific number of voting rounds. Just like in a reality show, when the Game Master calls for their votes in each round, teams will simultaneously display their votes. Based on the teams’ votes, some teams will earn certain profits and some will make certain losses for that round. To add tension to the game, there will be some Bonus Rounds. Through the game, they learn the concept of win-win, which allows not only the individual team to win but how all the other teams can win as well. This activity is engaging as it involves all participants to vote in the process.

It stresses on thinking and behavior that will lead to better results in the workplace. After all, the total is always greater than the sum of all parts.
