Virtual team building can actually be both fun, creative and productive. Hear are a few ideas.
Build Your Virtual Team with a Playlist
Research shows that employees can be more productive when listening to music, so why not create music playlists for your virtual team? You can build your team by creating musical playlists for the week, based on a theme or mood. There are lots of ways to do this, but here is a link on how to do it using Spotify and Apple Music.
Discover Art Together
Did you know you can go on a virtual filed trip through some of the world’s best museums. Explore a museum together and find out what art resonates with your team, or maybe what kind of art coincides with your virtual team building mission!
Write a Song with Your Virtual Team
It would be remiss if I didn’t plug my own virtual team building program – Sing Your Story. In this remote team building program remote teams come together to write a song. Usually teams won’t know what they are up to until they get to the meeting and it always ends up a very pleasant surprise.
As a songwriter I take it for granted how easy it is to write a song, so I’m always pleasantly surprised to hear when participants say, “Wow, I’ve never written a song before!” or “That was so easy!”
And it is easy. It literally only takes 45-50 minutes for a team to write a song that lasts a lifetime. I have never failed in getting a song written in hundreds sessions around the globe [knock on wood] Once a song is written it can be recorded, mixed, professionally, turned into a lyric video, business team theme song or more. The sky is the limit. So if you have any questions about it, don’t hesitate to reach out!
