50 Team Building Exercises That Get Results in Just 15 Minutes

Every group can benefit from team-building exercises. But sometimes it's not practical to embark on a full-scale training initiative. Now, supervisors, managers, and team leaders have 50 team-building activities to choose from, all of which can be implemented with no special facilities, big expense, or previous training experience. Readers will find engaging exercises for:

  • Building new teams and helping teams with new members
  • Dealing with change and its effects: anger, fear, frustration, and more
  • Recognizing individual efforts and team accomplishments
  • Finding creative ways to work together and solve problems
  • Increasing and improving communication
  • Leveraging diversity and individual differences to meet team goals
  • Keeping competition healthy and productive within the team

Instructions and tips for follow-up and variations are included for each activity, and an additional chapter provides valuable advice for working through unexpected difficulties in team-building.

Paperback, 171 pages.
