I’m excited to finally be able to publicly announce a great new partnership. I’m working with two great teambuilding guru’s, Mike Mulvihill (http://www.possibiliteams.com) and Mary Scannell (http://maryscannell.com), to write a book entitled “Big Book of Virtual Teambuilding Games.” We’ve signed a publishing contract with Mcgraw-Hill and have until June 1, 2011 to finish the manuscript. The book could be on bookshelves as early as Sept 1, 2011.
The book is a practical guide with detailed activities for virtual teams to use to improve their team trust, working relationship, brainstorming, decision-making and more. We’ve aligned the book’s activities in accordance with the various stages of development that traditional teams go through. The audience for this book is any organization with teams that are spread out geographically and rarely or never get to see each other. When you work remotely it can be difficult to cultivate deep working relationships that lead to truly productive outcomes. This isn’t a book about Virtual Worlds (SecondLife, OpenWonderland, Sims), but rather using work tools that most teams already have at their disposal.
More to come soon. Thanks to all our friends, family, co-workers and clients who have worked with us over the years and supported our work.
