How to build community (virtual) before our programs? | [Rebeca G.]
I manage a group of very young international staff (20 to 26 years old students from Spain, England, New Zealand, Poland and South Africa, mainly) who come to spend the best summer of their lives as they work at supervising campers and teaching them how to cook (we have a team of chefs and a team of counselors, media production specialists and Entertainment specialists besides the nurses, head counselors and camp directors).
I am in charge of the operations at Camp XXXX US. My main challenge is how to built community with them before they come to camp as they live in different countries. What can I do to make them feel as part of a team before they come to camp. Any suggestions of new ways of communication and ways to get them involved?
We usually use WhatsApp to communicate with them and we do some on line training courses on Google Classroom. By the way I am a IESE MBA and I have started to follow you on YouTube. I really like it and I often share some videos with my daughter who is studying business at ESADE in Barcelona.
Congratulations! I am glad to see that IESE still has top teachers.
