NEW: Virtual Team Building: Helping Hands
There’s nothing virtual about the impact your team will have on someone in need, nor about the value your team will experience by collaborating for good.
NEW: Virtual Team Building Kits For Your Remote Workforce
Odyssey Teams brings world-renowned value and style to your remote team members with our Virtual Helping Hands program. This 1.5 – 2 hour program is specifically designed for distributed workforces, remote workers and small groups working in multiple locations across the globe.
We’ve made our highly impactful Helping Hands team building program into a do-it-yourself (DIY) format that employees can do without ever getting on a plane. Choose from several options for video facilitation so you can focus on a few logistical items and join the experience.
About The Virtual Helping Hands Team Building Program
We’ve made our highly impactful Helping Hands team building program into a do-it-yourself (DIY) format perfect for a remote workforce.
Odyssey Teams recommends constructing each prosthetic hand in groups of three people; however, hands can be built by one person, two people or four people.
1. Decide How Many Prosthetic Hands Your Team Can Build
Each kit includes:
- All supplies needed to build one prosthetic hand
- All tools needed to build the hand
- Assembly manual
- Facilitation manual
- Access to Help Desk and Hand Recipient videos
2. Choose To Add Video Facilitation – LIVE, Standard or Customized
Choose to add either Odyssey Teams’ plug-and-play video facilitation, a truly-customized keynote facilitation that speaks to your company’s messaging and vision or a LIVE program facilitated through Zoom or Hangouts. Whichever facilitation model you choose, your team will receive a thought-provoking Odyssey Teams keynote address to support each participant’s journey.
3. Add A Customized Debrief Video
Add a powerful debrief video to any of the options above so that your team can take what they learned and replay it for years to come. At the end of your Virtual & Valuable Helping Hands program, each participant (or team) will record a brief selfie video answering questions about how the experience changed the way they relate to their team, customer, and shared vision. Participant selfie videos along with inspirational and astonishing footage of the hand being used by previous recipients will be compiled into a powerful montage video for the whole team to enjoy and own forever.
Virtual Helping Hands Is About Changing Lives
The Virtual Helping Hands program brings teams together and increases collaboration and communication for remote workers while also creating something valuable for someone in need. The program also focuses on commitment and quality while deepening a sense of community.
Coordination in dispersed workforces: The virtual version of Helping Hands precisely simulates the kinds of challenges teams face when working in a dispersed team. Each team member possesses a different piece of the puzzle and it’s only through clear communication and connection with the “big picture” that teams will successfully deliver all outcomes required in the timeframes allowed.
Personal and work-life integration: Virtual Helping Hands is also a great opportunity to share meaningful work with your family. There are a several opportunities where all members of the family (young and old) may be able to help. The coming together of each team member’s personal and work life often prompts powerful conversations about the norms that team wish to establish.
Leadership versus supervision: Virtual Helping Hands intentionally provides for a supervisory role along with a big-picture coordinating role. Contrasting these two separate, but complementary functions is a fantastic opportunity to talk about what leadership means for each individual in the team.
