This is an online team building game in which each participant will type five emoticons of which they think belongs to them regarding their personality or life. The participants will all guess which emotions belong to which person. This way all the participants get to know each other in a fun and light hearted way.📱
Online team building games offer numerous benefits for teams, especially in today’s digital and remote work landscape. Here’s why these games can be particularly useful:

Virtual Connection: Online team building games help bridge the gap between remote or geographically dispersed team members. They provide a platform for interaction and bonding, fostering a sense of camaraderie despite the physical distance.

Flexibility: Online team building games can be scheduled to accommodate various time zones and work schedules, making them a flexible option for teams that operate across different regions.

Low Cost and Accessibility: Many online team building games require minimal resources, making them cost-effective. Team members can participate using their own devices, eliminating the need for additional expenditures.

Break from Monotony: Remote work can sometimes lead to a monotonous routine. Online team building games provide a welcome break from regular tasks, revitalizing team members’ energy and focus.

Reduced Formality: Virtual environments often feel less formal than traditional office settings. This relaxed atmosphere can encourage more open communication and idea-sharing among team members.

Do you like this exercise? Let’s give these variations a try:

1. Instead of emoticons each person can also type five words, punctuation marks or numbers in the chatbox of which they think they represent themselves. The rest of the exercise remains the same.

2. Tell the participants they can ask questions to the person who is explaining why they chose the emoticons. This way they get to know each other even better.
