This book review is part of a series that covers the topic of Team Building . Team building involves the selection, training and motivation of a group of people working toward a common goal. Gina Gardiner is the Official Guide to Team Building. Quick Team-Building Activities for Busy Managers, by Brian Cole Miller, is a valuable resource for people interested in Team Building Ideas and it is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Every group can benefit from team-building exercises. But sometimes it's not practical to embark on a full-scale training initiative. Now, supervisors, managers, and team leaders have 50 team-building activities to choose from, all of which can be implemented with no special facilities, big expense, or previous training experience. Readers will find engaging exercises for:

* Building new teams and helping teams with new members

* Dealing with change and its effects: anger, fear, frustration, and more

* Recognizing individual efforts and team accomplishments

* Finding creative ways to work together and solve problems

* Increasing and improving communication

* Leveraging diversity and individual differences to meet team goals

* Keeping competition healthy and productive within the team

Instructions and tips for follow-up and variations are included for each activity, and an additional chapter provides valuable advice for working through unexpected difficulties in team-building.
