Competition to Collaboration™ is a unique series of team collaboration activities with a powerful message of organizational synergy. This engaging session will impart to your group coaching and mentoring skills while celebrating the success of colleagues.

This activity requires splitting the group into 2 sub-teams to work on separate initiatives. After several attempts during which they will be expected to improve upon their performance, they will each have set benchmarks for the other team to beat.

In one area, "Team A" engages in a series of activities such as Kaizen and Speed Order. With several quick rounds sandwiched between strategy meetings, the goal here is for the team to put together the fastest possible time.

Simultaneously, "Team B" is working on totally different challenges such as the frenetic, points-driven On Target or the financially driven Pipeline.

All of these challenges allow for multiple rounds and focus on continuous improvement with each team endeavoring to achieve the best possible result.

To their surprise, participants are now introduced to a new goal! Before they switch activities, they must now openly divulge information and strategies, which will position the other team to outperform their benchmark. With this new twist, success is now measured by their ability to help the other team to surpass their previous best effort!

This synergistic approach highlights the positive results of sharing best practices and has a powerful message of team collaboration and celebrating the success of our colleagues.

To ensure a great experience, aspects of this event may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.

The P&G Dreamworks needed a little help with being a little less competitive and more collaborative. The Competition to Collaboration was exactly what we needed. The entire team quickly learned we could help each other and still be successful. Our team facilitator was great in helping us to learn what we could take back and incorporate into our workday to be more team focused. Thanks for helping us to become more team focused instead of “I” focused! Thanks again for everything!

I have heard statements like "this was the best Training Day activity EVER!!” Our group really enjoyed the activities. Everything was fun!! The best “team building” aspect was during the cross sharing of information where one team had to mentor and coach the other team on how to outscore them. I think the groups got excited the most when their team was competing. Your lead facilitator and his team are absolutely the BEST!! I got specific compliments on him and how engaging he was with the entire staff. We were extremely satisfied with our Competition to Collaboration program.

Our Competition to Collaboration event created a high level of interaction with clear lessons the group easily identified. All three of the challenge sessions were fun and your lead facilitator did a great job. I got excellent feedback from my boss and the team. With 1/3 of our team being new and the second day of work for most of them, this activity was spot on to get everyone working together. I was very impressed with the insights the team shared from the experience.
