Did you know that disorganization is one of life's major sources of stress and motivation killers? Or, that anonymity is one of the greatest factors in motivating uninhibited creativity?
"Will power" is a poor tool for achieving motivation. "Skill power" is a much more effective approach, say authors Robert Epstein and Jessica Rogers in the Big Book of Motivation Games.
For managers, leaders, and individuals seeking to motivate their teams or themselves here is a light-hearted book of games that are based on rigorous behavioral research, not just hype. Written by Dr. Robert Epstein, editor-in-chief of Psychology Today magazine and a Harvard-trained psychologist, this collection includes dozens of fast, simple games and exercises, as well as two unique tests that you can use to measure your "motivation competencies" and select the games you need the most.
The energy-enhancing games help participants to:
- Jump-start personal as well as team motivation
- Use color to boost mood and energy
- Create a motivational environment
- Fight boredom and burnout
- Boost performance
- Overcome failure
- Stop procrastination
Packed with over 40 original games and exercises that can be customized to suit your specific needs and group size.

There is a need to train doctors and executives as managers: a tough, no-nonsense audience with little time to spare. The surveys worked well because, while they shared, it caused them to be more introspective when understanding staff needs. It needs a section on what to do when things go wrong - non-participant, lost supplies, unexpected or no response. A seasoned instructor can handle it, but it is not for a new instructor with little confidence/experience.
