If you're like most managers, you probably don't have the luxury of running complicated, time-consuming team-building activities--yet you realize how important it is to get your people working together effectively. Building on the bestselling original, More Quick Team-Building Activities for Busy Managers gives you 50 all-new exercises that can be conducted in 15 minutes or less, and which require no special facilities, big expense, or previous training experience.

This practical, results-oriented book contains fun and effective activities for:
- building new teams and helping teams with new members - finding creative ways to work together and solve problems - increasing and improving communication - keeping competition healthy and productive within the team - dealing with change and its effects: anger, fear, frustration - and more.
