THE ULTIMATE TEAM BUILDING GAME

Teams are groups of individuals who identify a common goal of interest and who are committed to working together to attain that goal. As part of that commitment, they plan, set goals and objectives, design a plan of action, implement that plan, and perform effective follow up to identify areas to build upon and areas that require improvement.

Effective teams are characterized by high productivity. They thrive on openness, honesty, and trust. They have clear and defined purpose, share values and rules, carry on effective communication, and hold effective meetings.

Laser Storm is an excellent way for members of your organization to learn about team building and put into practice what they've learned. The futuristic adventure game is so effective in developing team-building skills because players actually get into the action. Laser Storm teams set definitive goals and objectives, and have the opportunity to assess their performances in quantitative ways so they can plan steps for improvement. The game encourages cooperation and communication.

ABOUT THIS WORKBOOK

Your Laser Storm team-building workbook contains team worksheet to help the team members organize their plan for each game. The plan will vary for each team and usually for each game. This worksheet will help team members plan and make adjustments from one game to another.

Efficiently run meetings are a crucial part of the team building process. These meeting should have a definite time limit, a designated leader and a defined agenda. Whether it is a preliminary meeting lead by the facilitator in a Laser Storm meeting room prior to beginning the overall team-building exercise, or a shorter meeting between games led by the team leader, the meeting should always point towards constructive follow-up action.

A brainstorming forum is also included in this workbook. Brainstorming is a useful technique that can help team members solve problems they may encounter in the course of a game. Remember, brainstorming should be led by the team leader and should be non-judgmental, encouraging the flow of ideas. Make sure each idea is noted without regard to merit. At the close of the session, assess the ideas and design a plan of action.

ABOUT LASER STORM

At Laser Storm, players of all ages compete in a blacklight lit maze. Played in a safe and harmless environment, the game is based on flashlight tag and capture the flag.

Two teams enter the arena. A red and a green team face off in a maze of obstacles with each player wearing a vest, headset and phaser. The phaser emits a harmless simulated laser beam that will score points when they strike the headset or phaser of an opposing player. When hit, a player will hear an explosion and lose a shield. When all shields are lost the player must be recharged at a nearby energizing station.

The arena has an assortment of police beacons, fog and various props that add to the thrill and intrigue of the game. Each team can have up to 20 players. The game process will last approximately 20 minutes.

Participants receive a personal score card showing how many times they were hit, how many times they struck their opponent, total shots fired, shooting accuracy, total team scores and more. Most valuable players are identified as well as the player’s overall rank. This computer-generated scoring system allows team members to assess their individual and combined effectiveness in accomplishing their goals and objectives, and gives them an excellent starting point to establish new goals and develop ways to meet them.

GOOD LUCK LASER STORM TEAM MEMBERS!
