Teambuilding resources

default-16x9

I am hoping to deliver some one or two day teambuilding events, possibly with the help of external consultants. However I am looking for providers of off-the-shelf teambuilding exercises so that I can think about the possible designed in-house

I'm also looking for recommendations on good books and manuals on teambuilding

many thanks

Richard.

  1. Resources
    Richard
    There are so many sources around it is hard to know where to start. You’ll find here on TrainingZone a useful Team-Building Toolkit. I like the range of well-produced materials at http://www.mlruk.com Alternatively try http://www.promptbox.co.uk or http://www.accel-team.com
    For books try Alanna Jones’s Team Building Activities for Every Group or Michael West’s Building Team Based Working.
    Good luck

  2. An excellent resource for exercises
    Trainers’ Library (www.trainerslibrary.com <http://www.trainerslibrary.com> ). have some teambuilding exercises, including Murder at Glasstap Grange, which is brilliant for showing the importance of working together and sharing information effectively. If you just want Murder at Glasstap Grange, I believe this one can be purchased in isolation from Training Zone.

  3. teambuild kits
    I have used a kit called MTa MAXI, a series of exercises using large plastic kits, Ok for indoors/outdoors.
    Comes with a number of different activities,contact me on 01244 536765 and I can help on which to use to meet different training needs.

  4. Try Belbin’s team roles
    Belbin’s teamroles are a great place to start; each person can assess themselves and include observer feedback from their colleagues – its good for identifying strengths and weakness as well as any conflict and development issues.
    I use their E-Interplace software but you can get the self-perception test scored from paper copies. Contact Jo at Belbin Associates (www.belbin.com); she’s a great speaker/trainer too!

  5. Murder @glasstap
    I used Murder at Glass tap grange recently and it worked really well for about 30 people, needs 1.5-2 hours

  6. The real politics of achieving Change
    Richard,

    If part of the team’s responsibility is achieving change across the organization, or if thier remit involves change programs that depend on resources, authorizations, or cooperation from those not within the team, I have run across a great software game for team play. It is tremendously informative, and exposes the gap between what people know and what they do in a fun low risk environment.

  7. look at those photos!
    why are the photos of the contributors to this forum on this site so awful?

  8. Teambuilders

    You can also get a great range of Teambuilders from ManageTrainLearn in their E-Manual series. This offers different teambuilding exercises for particular skills, eg Change Management, Leadership Skills, Negotiations, etc.

    Find them here: http://www.managetrainlearn.com

  9. Charity Team Building

    Not so useful for basing your own team building ideas on, but one of my fave charities Action Medical Research do loads of 1 to 2 day events that work as excellent team building exercises.

    The PLODs are pretty good for it, as they are all-night events that require teamwork, such as mapreading and navigation etc. Check it out if it sounds up your street:

    Charity Team Building Events

    most of their other stuff is focused on cycling, some of those events run for a several days so might not be what you are looking for.

    Hope that helps.
