This experiential, high-energy program is designed to overcome barriers to performance for teams under pressure. We recommend that you invite your team members to join this collaboration skill development course with you. Take part in a simulated experience of an exciting themed-challenge set in Antarctica. In a frozen environment, groups must navigate around the continent as virtual teams and find ways to prevent icebergs from breaking away.
Throughout this task, the overall team performance needs to be coordinated and information must be effectively shared in order to reach a common goal. Fascinating facts from NASA research and actual Antarctic expeditions are woven into engaging and entertaining exercises in which individuals form expedition groups that have the opportunity to explore beyond their current experience into the future. Among the challenges in this program are the special needs of virtual and cross-cultural teams, contemporary team communication, leadership and individual responsibility, learning to deal with different perspectives, and much more.
The session provides specific takeaway tools for ongoing team development, including the practical ‘ICE’ strategy: Identifying needs and planning, Communicating and clarifying, and Evaluating.
