PAY IT FORWARD
In Pay It Forward, participants are split into teams. Each team is given a quantity of money, usually $100 or more. Then teams are given the instruction to “go out and do good” (examples). We give them ideas, but rely on their hearts to determine how they will use their money to make a difference for others.
To fully engage participants, competitive elements are added in such as “most creative use of funds”, “most people affected” and “best story”. A debrief component takes place at the end in which participants share stories, key learnings and personal insights using a safe and structured process for the discussion.
In an optional (and strongly recommended) add-on, teams are given video cameras and make a video of their experience, according to guidelines that we give them. Videos are shared after the program and this becomes the basis for the subsequent discussion.
Pay It Forward challenges teams to be creative about how they use their time and money. This program is also a test of their teamwork skills and making decisions in a short period of time. It is also a lesson in allocating scarce resources and doing more with less.
And perhaps most importantly, your group will have a reminder of how it feels to be of service. All relevant lessons for your group!
And, WOWOWOWOW, click here to check out what a team from Encana did in their Pay It Forward event! (Make sure you read the comments – awesome!!!)
“The Pay-It-Forward program is an outstanding team-building event. The goal of working together as a team to give back to the community is very meaningful and has a much greater impact than the traditional team building activities. The video showing was definitely the highlight of the day – It was heartwarming when you saw participants enjoyed and shared what others have done. All the participants felt a sense of accomplishment as a team. Our planning team has received much positive feedback from the particpants after the event and I will definitely recommend the Pay-It-Forward program to anyone that wants to accomplish something more than just bonding a team.”
– Bernard Wong, Unilever

“Everyone has positive and negative emotions, and I am no exception. However I had no idea how unconsciously holding a negative emotion in connection with a past event could prevent me from being effective in the present. I was able to quickly and easily release my negative emotions and now my life seems so much easier! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
