Team Building: A Structured Learning Approach provides a thorough understanding of team building concepts; what it means to be a member of a team, empowerment, and how teams contribute to continuous quality improvement. Your students will apply these concepts in various exercises throughout the book. A structured learning approach is used where team members rotate roles. Students take turns as leaders and observers. The observer records the interactions which occur in solving an exercise, and reports findings to the team at the end of the exercise. These findings are analyzed by the team thus creating an atmosphere whereby teams learn how to learn. There are numerous exercises so the student is exposed to a diversity of problems. Team concepts such as empowerment, cohesiveness, handling difficult members, and team effectiveness are explained and there are exercises that help students learn more about these concepts, while building their team skills.
