Crosswords meet boardrooms ... your meetings will never be the same!
Are you looking for a way to break the ice at a first meeting? Have you just been assigned to lead a cross-functional team? Or are you trying to get your group thinking outside the box? Or are you a trainer looking for some fresh ideas to get things going at your next workshop or conference?
Brain Teasers for Team Leaders can help you in all these situations and more!
It's always a challenge to get a group focused on the topic at hand, and not what they left back on their desks. And as people attend more and more meetings this challenge is growing. Professional trainers have long known that word puzzles and number games are a great way to energize a team, to get everyone to work together, break the ice and generally inject a little fun into another mundane gathering.
Leslie Bendaly, a leading trainer and best-selling author, has compiled hundreds of activities that will bend the minds of even the most creative team members. Designed for professional use, she has assembled the games into eight categories:
Brain Teasers - Encourages creativity with words and images that are not always what they seem
What a Difference a Letter Makes - Explores vocabulary by adding a single letter to create new words
Something in Common - Challenges a group to find a commonality in three seemingly unrelated words
A Number of Things - Tests cleverness in combining letters and numbers to create expressions or phrases
Before and After - Highlights the team's talent in dealing with word combinations
Missing Letter - Focuses attention on finding the word on a wheel of letters
Picture It - Challenges a team to think outside the box And Mixed Bag - Presents a variety of these brain twisting exercises on one page
