Books Info:

Adventure in the Amazon free pdf In this exciting activity, participants face a simulated "jungle survival." They must reach agreement in this imaginary setting in order to succeed, and they learn why consensus produces the best decisions. When their plane makes an emergency landing in the jungle, participants need to decide which of 15 items on the plane-including tallow candles, a pistol, safari hats, and other objects-would be most essential to their survival. First, as individuals, participants rate the 15 items. Then participants collaborate as a group and attempt to decide on the best course of action. When they cooperate, they experience the spark of synergy as never before! Use this gripping simulation to: * Improve decision-making skills * Enhance problem-solving abilities * Strengthen group cooperation * Show groups the power of synergy ...and much more! Human resource professionals, team leaders, and managers piloting a team development effort, will want to conduct this refreshing activity with their groups and teams in any work setting.
