Race Around the World
Race Around the World is an online team building activity designed specifically for remote workers. Choose an Explorer, then collaborate & communicate via video conferencing to guide your team’s Explorer around the globe. As you race you encounter three levels, each with a variety of fun, exciting challenges. These levels require that teams take notice of online bulletins and assess information gleaned from the game map. Timed stages and the added pressure of managing limited resources makes for a very fun, engaging, competitive, hilarious (and learning) platform.
Race Around The World allows remote workers to develop soft skills in a way that applies to working from home. As the objectives unfold gradually throughout the game and situations change, teams must take an agile approach to their collaborative strategic thinking and planning. Race Around the World has a learning framework where participants are encouraged to gather information, think critically and compare their solution with that of others in the team. Under the pressure of time, teams find that communicating online is quite different from face-to-face communication. Actively listening to receive and interpret messages, watching for facial cues and communicating precisely and succinctly are keys to team success.
