Call of the Champions
One way to make virtual calls fun is to assign roles during meetings. If someone has a specific job to do, like cheerleader or shade thrower, then they will be more engaged. Call of the Champions is a fun way to recognize the heroic roles that participants play in making a virtual call fun.
Introduce the roles to the meeting participants.
You can ask people to add more roles if they want to.
Explain the logic behind assigning roles to meeting participants.
Assign the roles or let people choose 1 role for themselves.
Keep in mind that 1 person cannot pick more than 1 role, however 1 role can be picked by more than 1 person.
Some of the roles may not be filled by a name, this is also okay.
Let the participants play the role that is assigned to them till the end of the meeting.
At the end of the meeting, let people reflect on their experience.
