Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event
Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
Almost 20 years later, the first VR headset concept was finally on the market. Looking at the potential of this product, companies such as Sony, Facebook, Google, started to invest in their VR projects such as Oculus VR, Project Morpheus, VR Headset for PS4, etc. Virtual Reality has many different uses such as gaming, shopping, medical training, to name a few. Some forward-thinking companies imagined it could be used for team building and training activities?
Virtual Reality as a team building event has evolved and through our partnership with Catalyst Global Team Building. TeamBonding has launched the world’s first VR team building event in the world. The team from Catalyst Tunisia created The Infinite Loop came up with a creative and beneficial use for it. They were the first company that uses virtual reality for team building activities and offer this technology through the Catalyst Network of team building providers to help intact teams and are now creating a new version for remote teams.
Introducing “The Infinite Loop”
The Infinity Loop program main goal is to provide teams real-time communication, collaborative problem solving, data gathering, knowledge sharing, building and deploying solutions, and more. The mission of this team building activity is to save a young man trapped in a virtual world.
The teams will have to find clues in the virtual world and solutions in the real world. It’s the perfect combination of a unique and beneficial team experience.

In this series of articles, we take a few minutes to chat with a member of the TeamBonding team so you can get an idea of the sort of people we are. In this installment, we talked to Josh, our Director of Event Operations, who gave us a few fun facts about herself!
The corporate world is experiencing a massive shift. A new generation is entering the workforce, many are retiring, and the formula for leadership is being re-invented. Dictatorships are giving way to collective organizational vision creation. Our titles, age, or departmental role do not define us. Focus is shifting from individual acceleration to purpose-driven teamwork. (more…)
Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork. The more collaboration your projects require the more assertive and intentional your communication should be. Every member of the team needs to take the initiative to communicate. When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively to improve teamwork. (more…)
We learn early in our lives that it’s better to win, and in order to win, we need to be competitive.
“Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.”- Henry Kissinger In order to lead, sometimes it is necessary to inspire. Leaders invoke the passion and drive into their team in order for hard work to be done. Team bonding quotes have the ability to encourage, but they also allow us to remember the great leaders of the past.
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
