Your small plane has crash-landed in the deserted wilderness of the subarctic and you must decide the importance of each item in your possession as it relates to your survival. Are you better off as an individual or with a team?
This is the premise of our Survival Simulation, which was run at an annual training event for Nissan Canada. Due to COVID, this event wasn’t held in-person, so on Friday, December 11th nearly 100 Nissan employees joined a Zoom call from their various home offices to participate in this fun, challenging, and educational activity. Utilizing “breakout rooms” participants were still able to experience the small group collaborations which are vital to this exercise.
After the exercise, students took the Group Styles Inventory (GSI) assessment. This assessment highlights team behavior features that help (or hinder) a team’s performance in a way that makes it easier for the individuals to discuss scenarios to overcome team interaction obstacles and achieve a more effective teamwork dynamic.
The Survival Simulation along with the GSI assessment made for a perfect team-building experience that left participants with a new understanding of the importance of team dynamics.
This is just one of the numerous training simulations we offer as part of our consulting services. You can read more about some of our simulations here or contact us to discuss how we can help with your team building.
