Activities to foster competitive spirits


Hi there,

I'm designing a 3 hour's teambuilding training to instill the competitive spirits among the various sales teams. There are 5 teams and a total of about 40 salespeople. Could anyone share with me some of their exercises with debriefing questions to help me out? I only have 1 week's time to prepare. Your kind assistance and sharing will definitely save my life.

Many thanks and regards,

Alice Ma

  1. Blurred objective

    I’m a bit confused “I’m designing a 3 hour’s teambuilding training” and
    “Activities to foster competitive spirits”

    The two arent the same thing, which one are you doing please?

  2. Who is the Competition?
    I agree with Juliet. Be absolutely clear who they are competing against – each other will mean no co-operation, sharing ideas etc. and therefore no-one benefits. If the competition is against a target or external competitor then you can foster the team spirit thing as long as the reward incentives are aligned. What you don’t want to end up with is the development message saying one thing and the reward message saying something else – the reward message will rule.

    Have a look at the materials produced by Northgate Training.

  3. Explain further
    Hi Juliet,

    Thanks for your reply. Let me explain further what I need. The department head would like to make use of teambuilding exercises to strengthen each sales team so that they could compete against another sales team.
    The competitive spirit is to fight against other sales team while within the same sales team, we need teambuilding skills to strengthen their team spirits. Hope I explain myself clear this time.

    Sounds like an excercise we use called ‘The EGGcercise’ might fit the bill.
    It promotes teambuilding as well as generating a bit of competition amongst participants – and it is also a bit of fun, so usually works well.
