Full Description:   

Arthur VanGundy has assembled 101 original games and activities guaranteed to satisfy almost every conceivable training need. The activities are organized into twenty different categories, representing a variety of training topics. They range from icebreakers, climate-settings, and getting-acquainted activities to diversity, team-building, evaluation, and implementation activities. The differing backgrounds of the contributors adds variety that is not possible when activities are written by one or two authors alone.

VanGundy has covered all the bases:

  • You want icebreakers? They're here!
  • You want leadership and team-building activities? They're here!
  • You want interviewing, and goal-setting, and change management games? They're here!
  • You want negotiation, and problem-solving, and career development exercises? They're here!
It's all here! You'll know exactly when, why, and how to use every activity. Plus, you get a detailed activity selection matrix that facilitates your finding, the perfect training tool. So whether you are a pro trainer, or a novice trainer, or not a trainer at all, you'll quickly incorporate these electrifying designs into your sessions, workshops, meetings, and presentations.

These dynamic exercises are accompanied by:

  • Concise objectives
  • Recommended uses
  • Suggested audience

Sample Activity

    Objectives:
  • To help participants to get to know one another
  • To create a nonthreatening environment in which everyone can participate
    Uses
    This activity is designed to use with new small groups of four or five participants each.
    Audience
    Any number of participants who do not know one another well.
    Time
    Ten to fifteen minutes
    Handouts, Materials, and Equipment
  • A copy of the Let's Get To Know One Another Handout for each participant
  • An overhead transparency of the Let's Get To Know One Another Handout
  • An overhead projector
  • Pens or pencils for each participant
    Procedure
  1. Welcome the participants and note that people learn most effectively in a supportive and familiar environment.
  2. Introduce the activity as a way for people to get to know one another.
  3. Distribute a copy of the Let's Get To Know One Another Handout and a pen or pencil to each particpant.
  4. Tell the participants that they have ten minutes to mill around the room, asking others all of the questions on the handout and filling in people's names and answers. Ask them to interview as many people as possible and to ask each person at least two different questions. Tell them not to volunteer information, but to wait to be asked.
  5. At the end of ten minutes, display the overhead of the questions and go around the room and have people tell the group any new information they have learned about fellow participants. Post answers on the transparency sheet.
    Discussion
    Ask particpants whether the type of information they have collected will make it easier for them to work together as a team. Lead a discussion of ways they can use what they have learned about one another during the program.
    Variation
    The facilitator can develop his or her list of questions, either directly relevant to the worshop topic or some combination of related and unrelated informaiton.
