We split team building events into two distinct categories: Huddle team building consists of just being together and sharing a similar experience. Developmental team building focuses on achieving a particular goal or reaching a specific focus.
A Huddle team building activity could be as simple as having lunch. Or getting everyone together for an informal chat after work.
Given the plethora of online meetings, everyone is already experiencing and the pressure of balancing home life with work. The idea of scheduling time for a Huddle virtual team build can seem more like a burden than a benefit. Huddle team building can be elevated by cooking, cocktail making, food tasting, or amusing quizzes. They can bring the team together, stimulate memories, and revitalize camaraderie when carefully crafted.
Huddle team building allows people from all over the world to join together and feel like a part of something.
Of course o3e Huddle team building has the added layer of always giving something to a worthy cause. For example, our online Zoning In allow teams to collect useful items for specific charities on their journey, whilst competing with other teams in the business and having fun on the way.
Developmental team building has more business value, as it seeks to address a business problem and begins to solve it.
For example, we might design team building events that steer your people through a Team Performance Model. Drexler Sibbet is a good example of using each element as a milestone and an opportunity to reflect.
