Top Customer Reviews
As a manager, but especially as a management trainer/presenter, I found "Quick Team-Building Activities for Busy Managers" to be a quite effective tool. It wasn't a difficult decision therefore to purchase "More". A few of the activities cannot be completed within 15 minutes but this is a minor criticism. I appreciate the detailed instructions on how to do each activity including warnings on what could go wrong and how to respond in such situations. There is even a primer at the beginning of the book that provides a wealth of relevant information, tips and strategies about using games. Many of the activities themselves are quite good and often a lot of fun as well! I would recommend this book to a variety of leaders including mangers, trainers/presenters, and youth or religious leaders.
i recommend this for supervisors and use it a lot with college aged students.
