Format: Paperback
This book is similar to Miller's first book of teambuilding activities. Once again, all the activities are quick, easy to manage and require few props. Even though I really liked his first book and go to it frequently, I was a bit reluctant to pick this second one up, fearing that maybe these activities weren't on par with the first volume. I was wrong. They are every bit as fun and effective as those in the first book. So now I have 100 activities to choose from. Also, an added bonus in this book is that he also adds tips for adapting many of the activities for what he calls virtual teams--groups of co-workers that are not located in the same geographic location. I used one once for an expanded project team that I'm a part of and it worked well.

This volume is every bit as good as Brian Miller's first collection of activities. He uses the same simple-to-follow format, and avoids any silly or embarrassing activities. While the activities are designed for managers in a business environment, they could easily be used by girl scout troops, school groups, church groups or in most any team setting.

This book provides many simple, easily organized activities to help build strong teams. The activities described can be done quickly without a lot of preparation time. For my present position, it gives me the chance to do a quick review, decide on an activity and I can be ready to go. People involved have enjoyed them and walk away from them with a renewed sense of energy after having been able to laugh together with colleagues. Morale is boosted and people have been able to see new sides of those they work with and that's great for team building!

More Quick Team-Building Activities for Busy Managers: 50 New Exercises That Get Results in Just 15 Minutes

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 found this activity book to be very useful for team-building activities. However, an overwhelming majority of the activities have to be adjusted to adapt to your specific team, resources and circumstances. If you lack creativity or experience leading team-building activities, this may not be the workbook for you. Otherwise, it gives you a solid foundation to work with by offering some really good concepts. With some experience and creativity, you can make them even better and more effective!

Brian Miller has a way of putting together a lot of activities in a clear and straightforward manner. I go to this quite often when I need something quickly, easily and of good quality.

i recommend this for supervisors and use it a lot with college aged students.

Great follow-up to the original book. If you work with a youth-group, this is a no-brainer. The teenagers really seem to like the activities. They book has a wide variety of good team building exercises.

I was disappointed there was not a better variety of activities that did not require a lot of set up. I don't think busy managers would have time to do as much pre-work for these activities.
