Format: Paperback
For once here's a book that truly delivers thought-provoking activities to inspire team members. Organized by the stage of a team (developing, mature, etc.) there are activities here for any situation.

I bought this book while preparing a workshop to combine two existing teams from different companies into one. Itseemed custom-made for my needs in developing the staff workshop and provided just the extra energy I was looking for.

This book's a keeper - a welcome addition to my reference library

Format: Paperback
This book is the only practical book on the market for helping people to deeply explore the connection between spirituality and high performance in teamwork. The six-stage model is applicable not only to teams but to one's own personal development, to couples, and to organizations. The exercises are well-designed and easy to follow. The large full-page layout of the book allows you to copy very professional handout material to use in workshops.
This six-stage team development model has been used with great success in both for-profit organizations such as AT&T, and in non-profit organizations. I highly recommend it to all trainers who are working with teams, and suggest that you consider taking Heerman's Team Spirit Certification Training to further develop your skills in this area.

I was hoping to find fun, but relevant exercises. Instead, the book wants you to share your feelings, or connect nine dots (been there, done that back in high school!). This book is good if you want to share your feelings, and is not good if you are looking to hve fun.

6 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Steve Ibbotson on May 15, 2001
Format: Paperback
In purchasing this book I was looking for pragmatic exercises applicable to work teams in the U.K. Having read the book, and being an experienced and well respected trainer,I decided that there was little, if anything that would be acceptable to 'blue collar workers'. There is too much 'ivory tower theory' that would turn people off, rather than stimulating and inspiring them to become actively involved in either a training or team activity. For me it was a waste of money!
