2. Huddle or Developmental virtual team building?

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.


Pop for purpose


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.

High Performing Teams

Drexler Sibbet is a good model to use in evolving teams from silo behaviours to working together with a common goal and can be used with an o3e virtual team building challenge. Drexler/Sibbet Grove Consultancy 1990


Our own The Business of Giving team challenge is based on similar developmental outcomes for this high performing team model, the scores gained are a direct reflection of how well they work as a team.
