Using an online conferencing tool, our skilled facilitators will be there to guide your participants throughout the experience and lead a debrief afterward to maximize learning outcomes.

Ideal For

It quickly becomes apparent that communicating online is quite different from face-to-face communication, therefore putting teams under higher pressure to successfully complete. Communication skills are key – always listening to receive and interpret messages, looking out for facial cues, and speaking out on any information you have effectively are keys to team success. Players must think critically and share their knowledge and solutions with other players.

Tailoring

This team building activity has been designed especially for remote teams. If your team can’t be in the same city or the same physical space, its a great way to engage, motivate, and connect your team.

Event Description

The Race Around the World has three levels, each with a variety of fun, interactive, and engaging team challenges. As each team chooses an explorer, players will communicate over video conferencing and collaborate to guide their team’s explorer avatar across the globe with the use of our high tech Go Team App. 

Within the team, there is one explorer specifically making the moves but being guided by their team who have the information on the efficiency of the routes. Players communicate in their team’s breakout rooms via video conferencing app – collaborating as one to guide their explorer avatar to the end location. Teams must complete the task with a maximum amount of points as possible – using the help of updates and notifications to maximize their opportunity.

A countdown clock on each stage keeps the team on their toes, and the last team to ‘check-in’ gets no time plan for the next trip! On crossing the finish line, each ‘explorer’ cashes in their remaining resource tokens to bolster their score. The team to finish all the stages with the highest score wins.

This 60-90 minute online-based event has something for everyone based on a sense of adventure. Under the pressure of time, teams find that actively listening to receive and interpret messages, watching for facial cues, and communicating precisely and succinctly are keys to team success.
