Teambuilders 12-pack for Problem Solving
Improving employee engagement and motivation can be as simple as starting up some activities. But you don't want just a game; as important as FUN is, engagement is MUCH MORE than just having fun.
Employee engagement expert Liz Trotter has put together 12 TEAMBuilders you can use to teach your staff to solve problems on their own - before the problems turn into complaints, low morale, or disciplinary measures. Each TEAMBuilder comes with a guide, including how to interpret the various actions and results of each game - what behaviors indicate who is engaging in good reasoning and applying company policies to create solutions rather than discord.
