Virtual Hike

Reconnect with the team!

Reconnect with the team and yourself: off-screen, in nature, fully connected!
What is a virtual hike?

A 1-day interactive team development program

  • reconnect on a different level with the team by working on personal development and discussing strategy & team dynamics
  • location independent: participants go into nature near their homes, possibly in couples
  • COVID-19 proof: the hike can take place even when regulations apply – the program is adjusted accordingly
A unique chance to discuss personal & team topics in nature, off-screen, fully connected with everyone in the team.

The 3 topics of a virtual hike

Personal wellbeing

Teamwork starts with personal connection. We take time to reflect on how you are doing. What you have learned and live through the past few months? What do you need to thrive in corona times?

Strategy

We go through the strategy of the company and the team – making sure we discuss it on a level of personal commitment: how do you feel about the direction? What would you like to be your contribution?

Team dynamics

There is time to experience and discuss team dynamics. We use nature to see how high performing teams work and ask: what would you like to contribute in this team? What do you need from others?

Why join?

Various teams have joined a virtual hike. Here’s why they join:

  • a unique opportunity to talk about team dynamics, strategy and personal wellbeing without the ‘drag’ of virtual meetings
  • a chance to connect with teammates on a more personal level
  • create room for personal reflection and conversations
  • do a form of team building that is COVID-19 proof
  • work on ourselves without standard classroom training

    How does it work?

    A virtual hiking day looks like this:

    You are part of a group of colleagues, facilitated by 1 or 2 coaches. Everyone is invited to enjoy a full day outside in nature (so pack lunch!), disconnected from daily (working) life. We encourage you to go out in couples.

    We start the day with storytelling by outlining the program. The rest of the day you will receive surprising and engaging assignments (video or audio) on your phone.

    These assignments are sometimes reflective, sometimes active, but always focussed on deepening your understanding of your own wellbeing and the way the team can become more high performing.

    Throughout the day you are in touch with your colleagues to engage in conversation and to help each other. Also, you get 1-on-1 time with the coach to discuss your specific questions.

    We wrap-up the day together, looking forward on how to take all the learnings from this virtual hike to daily working life.

    Testimonials

    This is what virtual hikers have experienced so far:
      • a great way to discuss all those topics that you normall don’t discuss in video calls: where do we stand as a team, where do we want to go, what do I need?
      • room for rest and reflection & work on myself
      • a great way to discuss team dynamics without day-to-day work pressure
      • finally able to go outside, away from my screen
      • (re-)connect with colleagues on a deeper level
      • a better, practical, understanding of what I need to do to get more energy out of my (working) day and feel the motivation to do it
