Foundational Skills: High Performance Team Development
This 2-hour virtual team building workshop will keep your team engaged through an interactive presentation and discussion-based session. Participants will learn about Summit’s High-Performance Team model, create a virtual team vision, analyze their current stage of development and performance and create personal and team goals to guide their day-to-day interactions. This program is based on our highly successful High Performance Team Workshop.
Building Effective Team Interactions: MBTI
Understanding your personal style and the style of others is critical in driving effective team interactions and is even more important in a virtual setting. Through this virtual team building session participants will understand their personal style (through a pre-session assessment) and how this can be used to interact, communicate and collaborate more effectively with others. This program is based on our highly successful MBTI Workshop.
Working Under Tension: Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a key determining factor in personal and professional success. During times of change, crisis, pressure and stress this is even more apparent. During this workshop participants will understand what EI is, how it impacts their personal effectiveness, and how it impacts they way they interact and collaborate with others. People will learn how our brains respond to change and crisis and how to navigate this effectively. Participants will create personal action plans to develop one area of EI to enhance their personal performance and how they interact and support the team. This program is based on our highly successful Emotional Intelligence workshop.
Self-Awareness: Strength Deployment Inventory
This workshop goes beyond understanding behaviours, and explores the motivations and values that drive teams and individuals. Take advantage of this virtual program to help your team gain a deeper understanding of themselves, which can set them up for high performance and successful collaboration, even in a virtual and remote setting!
Navigating the New Reality: Becoming A Virtual Team
In this workshop, we explore how to be a virtual team. We will examine best practices and create a working platform for how your team will work together virtually. We will create a virtual team vision, identify values and priorities, and discuss how teams and individuals will communicate, make decisions, collaborate, deal with conflict and more. At the end of this session you will have a play book outlining what is most important for your team for working in a virtual environment.
Team Communication & Decision Making: Desert Survival
This fun and engaging virtual simulation places your team in a challenging survival situation. Each individual must determine what they would do and then they will work with a small group to come to consensus on how they would work as a team. Their answers are compared to a survival expert and they are scored on their success. This program has a strong focus on communication, negotiation and decision making and provides effective tools and strategies that can be implemented by the team. This program is based on our highly successful Desert Survival team building program.
Critical Team Skills: Conquering Everest
Based on a real life ascent of Mount Everest your team will follow along and make crucial decisions along the way. The story is inspiring and engaging and the team learning is directly applicable to helping teams communicate, collaborate and make decisions on a virtual and live environment. This virtual team building activity is based on our highly successful Conquering Everest team building program.
Fun & Giving Back: Play It Forward
Summit’s version of a virtual scavenger hunt. But this scavenger hunt includes a great philanthropic give back element. Broken into teams you will need to solve a series of clues and find virtual locations and answers. Your success as a team will translate into dollars loaned to an entrepreneur from an emerging country through our partnership with Kiva. This program is based on our highly successful Play it Forward team building program.
