Team-Building Success: It's in the Cards
Scarfino, Deborah; Roever, Carol
Business Communication Quarterly, v72 n1 p90-95 2009
Successful team outcomes frequently--if not always--rely upon proven techniques for managing diverse styles and strengths. In this article, the authors describe the Diversity Card Game and the benefits it offers for students and instructors. Building teams using Diversity gives students the knowledge to manage clashes that might otherwise create ineffective work groups and create dysfunction. Instructors can use the game to help students communicate more effectively by challenging them to think and communicate in a way other than they naturally prefer. (Contains 1 figure.)
