100 Ways To Build Teams.
Created in response to requests from organizations across the country that wanted help in establishing teams for many purposes, this guide is an easy-to-use recipe book on the essential areas of teaming. It does not cover all the aspects of teaming, but focusses on the essential components of team development necessary for a team to function. The book can be used by anyone who works with people, such as teachers, administrators, students, businesses, or professional organizations. The seven chapter topics are: (1) "Trust Building"; (2) "Mission Making"; (3) "Discovering Leadership"; (4) "Code of Conduct"; (5) "Managing Meetings"; (6) "Giving and Receiving Feedback"; and (7) "Celebrating Successes." Each chapter is preceded by a short introduction, and in some cases, a story or example that enhances the meaning of the topic is included. The "Did You Know" section is a list of some important points the team needs to know. Each topic has three levels of team building activities--"Simple Things To Do,""Things That Take Effort," and "For the Committed." The materials required for each activity are listed. Contains 33 references. (TJQ)
