Book Description

"In a team situation, many issues -- like lack of trust and commitment, unresolved conflicts, and the inability of individuals to understand how their actions impact the rest of the team -- can stop even the most promising groups from delivering great results. This simple, easy-to-use book gives managers, supervisors, and team leaders activities to help their teams overcome emotional obstacles and become more effective. Readers will find powerful, proven exercises they can use to help employees:

* identify individual and team mood

* deal with anger and emotional triggers

* avert, rather than avoid, conflict

* encourage communication

* overcome fear and other obstacles

* understand and manage competition

* honor differences

* assess team strengths and weaknesses

* pick up on cues from teammates

* control the emotional climate of the team

Each activity is followed by a discussion of its purpose, how to use it, and a list of post-activity questions to help solidify each lesson. This practical, effective collection of proven exercises will elicit the best from any team."

            identify individual and team mood • deal with anger and emotional triggers • avert, rather than avoid, conflict • encourage communication • overcome fear and other obstacles • understand and manage competition • honor differences • assess team strengths and weaknesses • pick up on cues from teammates • control the emotional climate of the team

 

The book follows each activity with a discussion of its purpose, how to use it, and a list of post-activity questions to help solidify each lesson.

“At last, a handbook for managers that will help bring important topics to the table for discussion to improve teamwork. Adele Lynn has included short ingeniously designed activities that get results quickly and improve the emotional intelligence of any team.”—Bob Wall, author, Coaching for Emotional Intelligence

 

“Adele Lynn has written an amazingly accessible resource book to increase teamwork and leader effectiveness through emotional intelligence exercises. A can-do companion to her The EQ Difference, this work gives us a precise step-by-step protocol so leaders and facilitators can deploy 50 creative and awareness-producing activities. I am already referring to her highly useful Family of Emotions. The consideration she shows for the learner is a model for everyone who leads, educates, or trains…or (like 3 billion of us) struggles with our feelings.”—Gus Lee, author, Courage: The Backbone of Leadership and China Boy

 

“The perfect EQ toolbox to develop and maintain a healthy corporate culture.”—John Dickson, CEO, and the entire Redstone Presbyterian Care Executive Staff

 

“Adele’s book offers practical guidance to help us translate EQ theory into behaviors designed to improve our organization’s performance.”—Vin Cerasuolo, CEO, Century Heritage FCU 

 

"Lack of teamwork can stall many important initiatives.  If you've got key

teams,  projects, and organizational initiatives that require teamwork or

working across organizational boundaries, this book is for you"—William C. Byham, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Development Dimensions International (DDI)

Dr. Lynn has done it again with another exceptional book on Emotional Intelligence (EI).

I especially like that the book is designed with a quick introduction to EI for those who need a refresher or if you hand it to a manager with no EI experience.

The book is neatly organized with a tables listing all the activities and requirements at a glance and then you turn to the specific activity to go into more detail.

I recommend this as an excellent resource for a manager who wants to find a quick team activity or an experienced trainer looking to expand their repertoire.

You can search for team building games and exercises online, and get a bunch of these types of exercises. It is a worthwhile reference, but I like businessballs.com better, for their greater selection of activities. As I said, however, this is a great reference to have handy -- and pull out at a moments notice...

This would be good for a 3rd grade class. I bought it for a team building a few years back and after reading through the activities, I was really disappointed. The activities are more geared toward a 3rd grade class, instead of a group of professionals.
