Competition to Collaboration

Classic team building at its best! Also known as The Big Info Swap, teams are assigned an exciting challenge to master independently through a process of continuous improvement. At the halfway mark, teams are paired together and tasked with sharing best practices in order to beat the best result, which is established by each team in round one.

This sharing of best practices and exchange of information moves the participants from competitors to collaborators, now rooting for one another to the benefit of both the individual and the company at large.

The Team Experience:
  • Kickoff begins with a lively and proven opening activity
  • The group is divided into teams of approximately ten participants and assigned to a challenge station
  • The station facilitator demonstrates the challenge to all teams assigned to said challenge
  • Challenges may include; On Target: participants take on various roles and earn as many points as possible by launching tennis balls into color coded receptacles while remaining behind boundary lines; Pipeline: timed exercise involving moving the most marbles using only assigned PVC supplies; Magnifying Glass: participants line up (in order) a set of sketches representing the action of zooming in on an object or setting.
  • Communication is key as multiple rounds are attempted by teams to master the station challenge, pursue continuous improvement and achieve the best score
  • At the halfway point, the entire group is called in for a surprise twist where teams assigned a different challenge in round one are now paired together and information is shared between them in an effort to position each other to beat their high score
  • Team successes now depend on whether they were able to help the other team beat their original high score
  • The program finale includes a full group debrief where teams discuss their experiences during the program and how they may be representative of their everyday work projects

Thanks again “Nation” for a fantastic session. It was great to get to know each other with such a fun and challenging event. The entire team participated in Igniting Peak Performance enthusiastically. Starting out as a pure competition and then to see the finale where teams worked together to beat the overall time was outstanding! The biggest takeaway from the activity today was that teams sharing best practices and working together elevate each other!

Our leadership team held our first face to face in over three years. Ray and the Team Building Nation team facilitated a Bike Build charity event that was unforgettable. The energy in the room with the different activities on the iPad were awesome and engaging. The icing on the cake was being able to hear from the local charity group that received the bikes.

Wanted to pass along that your facilitator was really great! She kept everyone laughing and having a great time during the entire session. In It To Win It was the perfect ending to a busy day online and it really helped the team to de-stress for an hour or so. Job well done!

We are so glad we chose “Nation” and the Bike Building activity. It was great that our in-house team and our remote employees around the country were all able to participate in the event. We typically give back to local charities but putting the bikes together made everyone feel more involved. Feedback was great!

I can’t thank you guys enough for a well executed program. The Virtual Team iHunt event was just what we needed to break things up a bit and reenergize our group. It was hilarious seeing the pictures and videos taken during the event of everyone scavenging in and around their houses. Thanks for a good time!
