Why this event?
In this remote team building activity, groups must make swift, intelligent decisions while successfully completing a series of challenges. It’s a fun, effective way to enhance leadership skills & team engagement through experiential learning.
Following in the footsteps of some of the world’s most famous explorers and climbers, you’ll be confronted with difficult choices and complex decisions. Some could mean the difference between life and death for your teammates. How will you distribute your materials? Which path will you choose? How much risk are you willing to take? Who or what will get left behind?
Due to the complexity of this virtual experience, each team member takes on a specific individual role. Each will need to effectively communicate unique information to the larger group as they make their way up the mountain. Effective strategizing means weighing factors like client fitness levels, weather conditions, strategic routes to the summit, air pressure acclimatization and oxygen use. Teams must prioritize what their guide will to carry – tents, oxygen or clients. The team who earns the most points on their climb is declared the winner.
To wrap up the experience, participants use reflective observation to identify what happened during the exercise. They can then draw parallels between their observations and real-life workplace dynamics. It’s an effective way to make permanent, meaningful improvements in their behavior.
*We can also add a charitable piece to this event. At a predetermined point, we guide teams to shift from competition to collaboration. From that moment on, each team’s points go toward paying school tuition for underprivileged children in Nepal. This is a worthy cause that ties in perfectly with the Himalayan adventure.
