    This review is from: Quick Team-Building Activities for Busy Managers: 50 Exercises That Get Results in Just 15 Minutes (Paperback)

    This book brings together several mutually-supportive elements: managers with heavy, fast-moving schedules; team members who want to feel a greater sense of belonging; and an era that demands higher levels of collaboration….teamwork.

    The book is organized into two parts. The first section is instructional; the second section consists of bullet-pointed presentations of fifty short easy-to-run exercises. The opening section has two chapters that are worth the price of the book all by themselves: How to Run a Successful Team-Building Activity and What Could Go Wrong with a Team-Building Activity. What a sense of security this section gives managers: these activities are simple to use…and your experience is practically fail-safe.

    Each of the activities is presented using the same format. The bullet-point sections are This is, The Purpose is, Use This When, Materials You’ll Need, Here’s How, For Example, Ask these Questions, Tips for Success, and Try these Variations. It doesn’t get much more comfortable than this! Understanding today’s work environment, Miller promises no role-lays, demonstrations, outdoor activities, handouts, or touchy-feely stuff. The activities are organized by areas of need: Communication, Connecting, Cooperation, Coping, Creativity, and Teamwork. A strong index complements the well-organized table of contents, making the volume highly user-friendly.

    Recommended for managers and supervisors, as well as training and development professionals. Consultants will also find this tool to be useful as they work to bring people together to achieve results. Everything is explained so that the exercises can be led by laymen or by professionals. A wide variety of tools is offered, enabling the reader/user to choose the experience that will be best for the participants and the circumstances.

    This book is terrific and so, so easy to use! How many times are you asked to add some sort of quick teambuiling exercise to a meeting and you have to scour your brain to come up with new ones that won’t get groans from the team? This is the perfect solution for on-the-spot energy boosting activities. The author really understands “busy managers!”

    Having a Master’s Degree in Training and Development, I have read several books on this topic. This book was fun and informative as well as an enjoyable read. I’ve used several of the excecises and each have proven to be effective. The format is both easy to follow and well presented. It left no questioned unanswered.
